2015 Hermanuspietersfontein (HPF) "No.3 - Bergblokke" Sauvignon Blanc Western Cape Top Pick!
2015 Hermanuspietersfontein (HPF) "No.3 - Bergblokke" Sauvignon Blanc Western Cape

Hermanuspietersfontein's "No.3 - Bergblokke" or "Mountain Block" tends to produce pure, concentrated, fruit-driven wines presenting fine citrus, gooseberry, kiwi, litchi and melon aromas and flavors. A dash of neutral barrel fermented Semillon is added to balance the Sauv Blanc's overt nature and enhance palate texture. This is a super refreshing wine with lots of juicy fruit, zesty acidity and intense wet stone minerality. 2015 is another outstanding vintage. HPF was the creation of master of Sauvignon Blanc winemaker Bartho Eksteen. Bartho is known in... Read More »

2013 A.A. Badenhorst "Secateurs" Chenin Blanc Swartland

90 points Wine & Spirits: "Splash this into a decanter to release its fragrance and you’ll find a fresh, brisk chenin. It has the generous, waxy texture of the variety, the chew of the fruit skin, along with hints of lanolin that make it a natural partner to chèvre. Secateurs is Adi Badenhorst’s "second tier" from the 69 acres of unirrigated bush vines he and his cousin, Hein, own in Siebritskloof, on Paardeberg Mountain." (2/2015) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Secateurs Chenin Blanc, which comes from bush vines planted on granite slopes, has a pleasant, simple bouquet with dried lemon peel, a touch of ...Read More »

2015 Bryan MacRobert "Abbotsdale" Shiraz Swartland Top Pick!
2015 Bryan MacRobert "Abbotsdale" Shiraz Swartland

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Abbotsdale Shiraz is blended with 5% each of Cinsault and Mourvedre. It has a slightly reserved bouquet with mulberry, black fruit and earthy aromas with just a touch of wild mint. The palate is medium-bodied with ripe tannin, crisp acidity and quite an elegant finish with clove and black pepper lingering on the aftertaste. It leaves you wanting another sip... job done. (NM)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: 90% Shiraz, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault. Grown on dry-farmed bush vines with organic farming and minimal-intervention winemaking. A great representation of the terroir...

2015 A.A. Badenhorst "Curator" Red Rhone Blend Swartland

Dusty red fruits, plum, red currant, smoked meat, some briary, brambly edges. Easy to love, a nice balance and completeness on the palate. A very authentic vinous quality, nothing artificial or manufactured about this budget bottle. Great for when you fire up the “Braai” aka the grill! Top value.

2015 Bryan MacRobert "Steen" Hillside Vineyard Chenin Blanc Swartland

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2015 Steen Chenin Blanc has an attractive bouquet with brioche and sesame notes infusing the light tropical tones. The palate is well balanced with an almost creamy-textured opening, hints of brioche and sweetcorn broth, lovely definition towards the finish that lingers in the mouth. (NM)" (4/2017) K&L Notes: Winemaker Bryan MacRobert graduated from the hallowed cellar of Sadie Family wines learning his craft from Swartland legend Eben Sadie. Fruit for this bottling is from old vines, on a steep, east facing slope in a very cool vineyard. This gives the wine a li... Read More »

2015 Joostenberg "Little j" Red Rhône Blend Paarl

Winery Notes: "The Little J Red is a bistro red blend consisting of 69% Syrah, 13% Grenache, 11% Cinsault, and 7% Mourvedre. This is an unprentious, generous wine made from a selection of vineyards in the Paarl area. 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."

2015 David & Nadia Grenache Paardeberg Swartland

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "(a small quantity of Syrah skins was used during fermentation for color stability; vinified with about 40% whole clusters): Juicy, firm and delineated but with compelling insinuating sweetness to the candied red fruit, spice and rose petal flavors. As brisk and fresh as the 2014 bottling: wonderfully penetrating, floral Grenache with a rising finish featuring a firm dusting of fine-grained tannins. Sexy, vibrant wine--and just 13.5% alcohol." Jancis Robinson: "Pale - very pale - ruby. Very sweet, almost strawberry jam, on the nose, yet with sufficient refreshment. Great liv ...Read More »

2016 Tamboerskloof Viognier Stellenbosch

92% Viognier, 8% Roussanne - Winemaker's Notes: "Our Viognier was hand picked on four different dates to obtain the full flavour spectrum of the grape. The Roussanne was picked on the 10th of February along with a batch of the Viognier and hand-sorted before being de-stemmed into the stainless steel basket-press. To ensure early blending, the varieties were co-fermented. The juice was then settled overnight and fermented for twenty days with indigenous yeasts at a temperature of 15°C. 30% of this wine was fermented in 4th & 5th fill French oak 300L barre...

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

A 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, expressive and precisely balanced. I am excited to work with Waterkloof E...

2013 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 dates back to the late seventeenth century, which Rustenberg and its vineyard holdings also date back to. Their cellars have been in continuous production since 1892—how many Old World producers, let alo... Read More »

2015 Crystallum "The Agnes" Chardonnay Hemel-en-Aarde / Overberg

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "92+ (13.5% alcohol): Pale, bright straw-yellow. A bit lighter and more citrussy on the nose than the Clay Shales, offering aromas of white peach, lemon drop, lime, apple, nutmeg, minerals and crushed stone. A bit less silky than the Clay Shales but firmer and more sharply delineated, showing less sweetening influence of oak but lovely dusty brown spice influence. A slightly cooler style with a tighter, more minerally, more savory back end. This will need some patience to put on weight and expand."

2014 A.A. Badenhorst Family Wines "Red Blend" Swartland

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Family Red Blend comprises of 56% Shiraz, 17% Grenache, 17% Cinsault and 10% Tinta Barocca. It has an animally, almost feral bouquet, a touch of fynbos infusing the red berry fruit; rustic but really compelling. The palate is medium-bodied with fine grip, grippy tannins and a keen thread of acidity. A mixture of red and black fruit, there is a solid backbone to this wine, great precision and it bounces along with its vivacious tart fruit on the finish. This is a great red blend from Adi and it will give at least a decade's worth of drinking plea ...Read More »

2015 Raised By Wolves "Old School" Cinsault - Cabernet Sauvignon Stellenbosch

17 points Jancis Robinson: "17 pts *Delicious* Lightish crimson cherry colour. Dusty and lively on the nose, very pretty red fruit, almost a little floral, and peppery too. Tight and peppery on the palate. Definitely on the leaner end of the spectrum but no lack of fruit. Precise and fresh and persistent. Really fresh finish. Delicious. (JH)" (7/2017) K&L Notes: 80% Cinsault - 20% Cabernet Sauvignon; Many of these old South African "Cabernet Sauvignons" gems from the 60's and 70's included far greater Cinsaut than Cabernet.

2015 Crystallum "Peter Max" Pinot Noir Hemel-en-Aarde Walker Bay

A slightly farmyardy, game and redcurrant nose leads into a palate of bright red cherry fruit with a pithy grapefruit and orange acidity. There is some oak creaminess on the finish." 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "91+ (14% alcohol): Bright medium red. Complex, subtle perfume of raspberry, strawberry, flowers and spices. Fat, ripe and subtly sweet, offering lovely depth of texture to the red fruit, spice and smoke flavors.

2015 Raised By Wolves "Driehoek" Chenin Blanc Stellenbosch

The Montpellier, or 'Lost' clone holds special reverence amongst South African producers of Chenin Blanc. Up until the 1990's it was widely planted until newer, heavier yielding clones became available and it was mostly replaced. Although commercially extinct, it is perhaps one of the finest quality selections of Chenin Blanc producing naturally lower yields and wines of richness and depth of flavour, often with a pithy texture and a refreshing citrus twist.

Ranging from 15-25 years in age, the vines are now hitting their straps and providing great flavors and full maturity. Mainly grown on granitic soils as well as some shale soils.

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.

2015 Alheit Vineyards "Cartology" Chenin Blanc Western Cape

It offers complex and quite arresting aromas of walnut, wax resin, linseed and smoke that blossom in the glass, always as much an intellectual proposition as a sensory one. The palate is well balanced with superb balanced, very saline in the mouth, evoking images of the sea, fanning out with citrus fruit mixed with hazelnut and Chinese five spice.

2015 The Valley (La Brune) Pinot Noir Elgin

Importer Notes: "With many visits to Burgundy for harvest, Winemaker Nico Grobler, fell in love with the Pinot Noir grape and set out to craft a South African bottling that showed the same finesse, elegance, restraint, and purity one would find in Burgundy. In order to achieve this balance, he uses Pinot Noir clones 113 and 777. Clone 113 provides structure while clone 777 lends the wine fruit and perfume. Barrel fermented and then barrel aged for 12 months in 500L French Oak barrels, the wine sees another year of age in bottle before release."

On the nose there is a distinctive floral fleshy fruit quality intensified by black pepper, spice and a sanguine note.
