Domaine F&L Famille Fournier Longchamps, La Croix Picot, Savennières 2016
Classic style of Chenin Blanc from Loire Valley, clean and lean with citrus notes, minerality and a naturally high acidity.
Johan Meyer, Mother Rock “Liquid Skin”, Chenin Blanc 2017, Swartland
A deep golden orange color, with complex aromas of exotic fruits, apricot, honey and quince. The palate has structure but also plenty of freshness and minerality, making it serious but also incredibly drinkable.
Mas du Chene “Les Copains Dèbordent”, Cinsault 2016, Costières de Nîme
A fermentation with indigenous yeasts followed by a carbonic maceration result in a wine which is light bodied and fruit driven: red berry fruits notes such as strawberry, raspberry and redcurrant.
Duncan Savage “Follow the Line”, Cinsault 2017, Western Cape
Floral to start with, its fresh, juicy and saline palate is a cause for celebration! Raspberries on the nose, it preserves a nice fresh crunchiness and spiciness. Touch of tannins.
Jean Louis Chave “Offerus”, St. Joseph 2015
A rich Syrah with intense flavours of crushed plums, red fruits, raspberry, black currant and cherry fruit. Dried anise, fruitcake and black tea notes run along the edges, adding range and texture. Fresh and vibrant wrapped in crisp yet silky tannins.
Johan Meyer, Mother Rock Syrah 2017, Swartland
Bright nose of red and black berries, white pepper and hints of spice. The palate is linear, with remarkable purity and freshness.
