The Travellers Mixed Case (six bottles)

R1,914.00

The case of six wines are curated to compare South African wines vs Wines from the rest of the world.

Gamay Noir

Dominique Piron Beaujolais – Villages 2020 @R314

“Graphite and pomegranate and wild night-jasmine, bosky fragrance. Particularly fine tannin texture, like a flute whittled out of olive wood and polished to a silky sheen. The fruit, dark red and sculpted, has startling purity for a Beaujolais-Villages. Clean, long, evening-breeze-fresh, graphite-lined finish. Very good value.” Jancis Robinson

Radford Dale Vinum Gamay Noir 2021 @R215

Deep purple, with a Violet rim. Aromatic mulberry and raspberry notes over a little hint of gunflint. Generous and juicy, the plate shows medium weight with ripe elderberry and soft tannin that draws into a rewardingly full finish.

Malbec

Baron De Rothschild Flechas De Los Andes Gran Malbec 2017 @R310

The color is intense with violet tones, typical of this variety. The nose is expressive, dominated by fruity aromas of plums and cherries and violet floral aromas characteristic of Malbec from Uco. In the mouth the attack is round with fine, polished and dense tannins that give a magnificent center of mouth. The mineral character, the freshness, the subtle contribution of the oak and its long finish, make this wine an example of quality, elegance and excellence.

Blaauwklippen Malbec 2020 @R234

Dark chocolate, mineral and tobacco nuances support the abundant notes of mulberry, cassis, blueberry, black berry and plums. Plush chalky tannins with vibrant
texture on the palate. A fine aromatic finish with lingering length and creamy flinty texture.

Grenache

MacRobert & Canals Laventura Garnacha 2020 @R404

It has a pale ruby colour with primary fruit aromas of red fruit such as red plum, strawberry and red cherry. Secondary aromas of brioche due to the lees contact and ageing for one year in barrel. The palate is light and textured with a soft tannin. Good acidity, body and length.

David & Nadia Grenache Noir 2021 @R437

“Red currant, cherry, pomegranate, a hint of rose, olive, white pepper and earth. The palate has excellent fruit purity to go with a great line of acidity and powdery tannins, the finish extremely long and dry.” – Christian Eedes
