Mont du Bois Chenin Blanc Late Harvest half Bot

Alc. 12. 4% In great vintage years the grapes are left on the vines a little longer than usual to allow the sugar content in the berries to rise higher than usual. At the same time, and once again on rare occasions only, a bacteria called botrytis settles on the bunches and further dehydrates the water from the berries. At the optimum moment the bunches are hand picked, pressed and the juice fermented. Fermantation stops naturally leaving a great deal of natural residual sweet- ness and the botrytis adds a fantastic unmistakable addition to the flavour. This is a real blockbuster of a 'sticky' sweet wine. Deep golden colour, fabulous bouquet of dried fruit, honey and rich home made orange marma- lade. The flavour is rich, unctuous, viscous, complex melange of tropical stewed fruit, sun dried peaches,apricots & a lick of honey gently infused by botrytis. Fabulous. Goes well with many cheeses but especially 'blue' cheeses [read on...]

Koelenhof Koelenbosch Pinotage 2009

The Pinotage vine was created in Stellenbosch in 1924 by crossing Pinot Noir with Cinsaut which used to be called Hermitage - hence the name Pinotage. This vintage is excellent. Vibrant red colour with creamy butterscotch, plum, bramble, black cherries, ripe raspberries and a hint of spice on the nose. The butterscotch follows through onto the palate with rich cherry and mulberry flavours and a hint of spice on the farewell. Chosen as TOP 20 PINOTAGE in South Africa 2010. [read on...]
