2015 Boekenhoutskloof "The Wolftrap" Red Blend Western Cape

Wine Spectator: "*** Best Value *** Ripe and focused, with dark plum and boysenberry fruit lined with licorice snap notes. Shows modest toast through the juicy finish. Syrah, Mourvèdre and Viognier.

2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic) Top Pick!
2016 Waterkloof Circumstance "Cape Coral" Mourvèdre Rosé Stellenbosch (Biodynamic)

Too soon? Not for rosé from the Southern Hemisphere, and not for this perennial staff and customer favorite at K&L. This is one of our best-selling and most-raved-about rosés every year. Hand-picked from biodynamically farmed, old Mourvèdre vines in a cool coastal sub-region of Stellenbosch, it's a fresh, elegant wine that does a fantastic impression of Bandol (which is also predominantly made from Mourvèdre), but at a fraction of the cost! Waterkloof is a stunning property working with very natural, non-interventionist methods. The wines are pure, expre... Read More »

2016 DeMorgenzon "DMZ" Cabernet Sauvignon Rosé Western Cape

(JM)" (2/2017) K&L Notes: DMZ is DeMorgenzon's value-driven label and this rosé delivers plenty of bang for the buck. Notes of pomegranate, watermelon and strawberries make this the perfect accompaniment to a picnic of cheese and charcuterie.

2016 Bayten Sauvignon Blanc Constantia

92 points Wine Spectator: "*Best Values* This is refined, with a steely spine that lets gooseberry, verbena and white peach flavors streak through. A hint of shortbread adds range and mouthfeel along the edges. The long finish has lovely cut. An amazing value. Drink now through 2019. (JM)" (2/2017) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Pale bright yellow. Complex nose melds orange blossom, stone and tropical fruits, wild herbs and pepper. Plush, fruity, slightly sweet and concentrated, lifted by a floral quality and framed by integrated acidity. Finishes tactile, saline and persistent."

2016 De Wetshof "Limestone Hill - Unoaked" Chardonnay Robertson

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Limestone Hill Chardonnay has a light patisserie-tinged bouquet with flecks of almond.

2016 Radley & Finch Cinsault Rosé Western Cape

This crisp, refreshing rosé was made by winemaker Thinus Krüger and sourced from the Swartland and Paarl areas of South Africa. The 2016 vintage was warm and robust with an early harvest, producing a wine, according to the Krüger, with "aromas and flavors all focused on the red spectrum, embracing the natural sweeter notes of Cinsault combined with a fine firmness on the palate and juicy fruit at the centre of it all."

Jancis Robinson: "Easy and mouthfilling. Tangy and definitely Chenin. A great introduction to New Wave South African wine!" (9/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Secateurs Chenin Blanc has a slightly waxy, toffee apple-scented bouquet that perhaps lacks the complexity of some of the other vintages that I have tasted in the past. The palate is nicely balanced, quite primal in the mouth at first but settling down later on with lime cordial and peachy notes that deliver plenty of flavor. (NM)" (11/2015)

2016 Hamilton Russell Chardonnay Hemel-en-Aarde Valley

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Chardonnay underwent less malolactic than other vintages to preserve the acidity, around 40%, and the wine matured in 38% new oak for nine to ten months. Yields were very low at around 20 hectoliters per hectare. It is much less rich than the 2015, yet it displays finer delineation and perhaps more mineralité. The palate is very well balanced with superb tension, brimming full of energy and fanning out with nutmeg and smoked walnut notes towards the somewhat feisty finish.

David & Nadia Sadie focus on organic, dry-farmed bush vines on different soils across Swartland - these grapes come from the highest plots on the Paardebosch farm in Paardeberg - and they make their wines as naturally as possible.

2015 Radley & Finch Sauvignon Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Sauvignon Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. The 2015 vintage offered a dry and early-ripening season with low yields and high quality fruit.

This Sauvignon Blanc is an excellent warm weather sipper, or a companion to fresh seafood and Mediterranean fare.

It is reticent on the nose and demands encouragement, with slight resinous scents with a touch of Jasmine. The palate is where the character lies with walnut, orange rind, potent salinity and an effervescent, vivacious spiciness towards the finish that is driven along by the acidity (the highest among Eben's OVS series in this vintage).

2015 FRAM Grenache Gris Citrusdal Mountain

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Grenache Gris is only available in the U.S. It has a pinkish hue not unlike a mature Riesling in some. It has an intriguing bouquet with dried honey and an almost Tawny Port-like scent, hint of grilled almond and nutmeg coming through. The palate is ripe and slightly honeyed on the entry, but it feels dry in the mouth with a nutty, smoky finish. It is a love it or hate it Grenache Gris that apparently is popular with New York sommeliers, which actually does not surprise me. I quite like it...I think? (NM)" (4/2017)
