2018 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst’s entry-level chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day’s fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to ...

2018 A.A. Badenhorst "Curator" White Blend Swartland

"The CURATOR is a range of dynamic wines that are selected after the vintage each year. The grapes are grown in the Swartland region on the West Coast of Southern Africa. The vineyards are mostly bushvines growing in granite and slate soils, sourced from a number of traditional farmers. Chenin Blanc is the backbone and structure of this blend. The Chardonnay was naturally fermented and took a long time to complete fermentation, resulting in great texture and wacky aromas of dried peaches and apricots and ripe citrus. The Viognier, from one of Badenhorsts ...

2018 Radley & Finch Chenin Blanc Western Cape

Sourced from across the broad Western Cape region of South Africa, Radley & Finch offers this Chenin Blanc at an attractive entry-level price. Grapes were sourced from both bush vines and trellised vines primarily in the Agter Paarl and Swartland regions. Winemaker Thinus Kruger primarily utilized indigenous yeasts in a particularly slow fermentation to develop complexity. The result is a citrusy and yellow-fruited profile with hints of spice and grain. It is ready to drink right now, but will fill out and add complexity for a couple of years.

2016 Joostenberg "Little j" Red Rhône Blend Paarl

The Little J Red is a bistro red blend consisting of 86% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault, and 4% Grenache. This is an unprentious, generous wine made from a selection of vineyards in mainly the AgterPaarl area (part of the Paarl appelation). The predominant soils are Malmesbury Shale. These soils have a surprisingly good moisture retention capability which allows for dry-land farming in this relatively warm and dry area. The vineyards are a combination of traditional bush-vines and trellised blocks.

2016 Rustenberg Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch

Stellenbosch is the starting point for most newcomers to the wines of South Africa. It is familiar yet exotic. Here are large, perfectly tended estates, as you would find in regions throughout the fine wine growing world, but they are framed by the dramatic and ancient Drackenstein mountains, and sometimes views of the False Bay. Winemaking in the region and at Rustenberg dates back to the late seventeenth century. Their cellars have been in continuous production since 1892—how many Old World producers, let alone New World producers, can say that?

From the winery: "With a lack of sufficient rainfall in the winters of 2015 and 2016 leading up to the vintages of 2016 and 2017, we saw the effect of droughts, combined with heat waves during vintage. For this good reason, Pinotage is called the “farmer’s grape” because of its earlier ripening character which allows us to harvest before heat waves, ensuring some freshness in our wines. We harvested the Pinotage vineyards right in the middle of January of 2017, before any of our whites, and matured them on the skins for three weeks in total. By the time ...

Fresh citrus notes are prominent on the nose followed by whiffs of tropical fruit before revealing a hint of oak spice. This is a fruit driven wine with a lovely balance between acidity and fruit. The wood adds to its fullness without dominating it. A beautiful balance between sweetness and acidity is complemented by a long lingering finish. Enjoy now or let it mature for 2 to 4 years."
