Cape Town Wine Co. Sauvignon Blanc is from vineyards around Cape Town, cooled by the Cape Doctor since the 17th century. The Cape Town Wine Co. Red is from similar vineyards but a 'Bordeaux blend' of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot & Cabernet Franc that will appeal to good old claret lovers.
Our chirpy Eekhoring Rooi was a collaboration between some South African winemakers and ourselves where we wanted to capture the heart and soul of new wave adventure at an accessible price. With this juicy, smoky, easy-drinking blend of Cinsaut, Syrah & Pinotage from the Swartland, we think we cracked it.
It's in neighbouring Voor-Paardeberg where De Kleine Wijn Koöp Klipkers Droë Wit is farmed, an exotic blend of Grenache Blanc, Grenache Gris and Verdelho delivering a rather moreish, aromatic and silky dry white.
Lowerland Die Verlore Bokooi, on the other hand, comes from the other end of the country - the Northern Cape and the little town of Prieska, to be exact. Syrah, Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon & Petit Verdot are hand-picked on this remote organic family farm and driven south through the night to Stellenbosch, where the wine is made by winemaking friends. Their Die Wonderdraai is an exciting new white blend of Chenin Blanc & Colombard, a full-bodied hug of a wine from a remarkable place.
