Springfield Whole Berry

Was R179 - 8 cases only availble

In making our Whole Berry Cabernet Sauvignon we re-enact this lost tradition. The red wine cellar has been carefully designed on a gravity flow system. There are no pumps or crushers, so that the journey of the grape into wine is undertaken in the traditional way.

Whole Berry maceration is followed by fermentation with natural yeasts, racking and one year’s maturation in oak barrels. The wine has a velvety-smooth texture with soft tannins and typical Cabernet Sauvignon notes of red fruits and hints of cedar. This traditional wine is unfiltered and unfined, which may deposit a sediment and might require decanting.

Light bodied and fresh with lovely fine tannins. Extra smash able - Winemag

The grapes are sourced from parcels grown on various different Swartland terroirs: the Malmesbury clays, Kasteelberg schists and Paardeberg granites. The wines are fermented naturally in a combination of stainless steel tank and well seasoned wood foudres. The Syrah and Mourvedre were fermented partially de-stemmed with a medium length maceration before ageing in seasoned oak barrel while the Cinsault and Tinta Barocca were fermented as whole clusters and aged in stainless steel to preserve the fresh and bright fruit. The separate wines are tasted and then blended with the aim to bottle a wine that reflects bright, fresh red fruit balanced with savoury, earthy qualities of the grape’s various terroirs.’ - Ryan Mostert

Old bush vines give rise to a balanced tannin line and elevated length. This wine is not overtly fruity. A combination of strawberry, spices and a slight earthy note can be appreciated on the nose. Soft tannins on the mouth are complemented by elegant fruit aromas. This wine would pair nicely with duck and also a rack of lamb. Delicious served slightly cool.

Cellar"a soft balanced tannin line and elevated length. This wine is playful in its aromas with pronounced cassis tones. Furthermore, a combination of blackcurrant, candied orange zest, violets and spices can be appreciated on the nose. In the mouth cassis fruit dominates with some spiciness to it, which is complemented by soft tannins that develop effortlessly."

Tim Atkin raved- The name refers to the site rather than a desire to get down with the kids, but this is a wine that should appeal to younger drinkers. Juicy and fresh, with a hint of oak, sappy rose petal and raspberry notes and palate-cleansing acidity. Wonderfully gluggable. 2019-23

A wine that strives to offer the consumer more complexity, more interest and more terroir character, not just a brasher version of a cheaper wine. The wine has intensity of flavour, great structure and texture, but above all the ability to mature. The wine has a deep red colour with rich red berry aromas and a good tannin structure with intense spicy undertones penetrated by hints of vanilla and tobacco.

Wow, wotta nose. Could not be fresher or fruitier !!

Loaded with ripe, tropical fruit like litchi and mango with fine citrus backing. Fresh mown grass is also there with floral hints in the background. Tropical fruit dominates the fresh, lively mouth. Lots of flavour to the degree that the fruitiness almost appears ripe and lush although it is beautifully balanced with the lively acidity.

Ends full of fruit but dry.

The Chocolate Block 2017

5 star Platter

The nose is complex and intense bursting with red berry fruit juxtaposed against a dark, brooding fruit compote and Swartland violets. Fruit aromas abound with raspberry, mulberry, blackberry, damson, dark chocolate and liquorice with whiffs of cloves, nutmeg and orange rind. The wine has a soft, smooth entry, a rich mid-palate and the abundance of red and black berry fruit on the nose follows through with balanced acidity and svelte cocoa powdery tannins. Swarland lands and specifically the Porseleinberg fruit certainly makes an impact to the blend, lending structure and a piercing yet lifted perfume. The wine has a long, lingering finish reminiscent of Swiss dark hazelnut chocolate.

Syrah (71%), Grenache Noir (15%), Cabernet Sauvignon (8%), Cinsault (5%) and Viognier (1%)

Bartinney Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 -platter 5 star

This Cabernet Sauvignon is truly classic in style with up-front cassis, tobacco and pencil lead nuances on the nose followed by rich plumb and chocolate flavour on the palate. The tannins are firm but restrained and strides into and elegant finish.

Malanot Triton Syrah 2018 - Was R170

Our find of the month - elegance in a bottle. 

This Shiraz / Syrah (and yes they are the same thing) is sexy, rounded and layered.

The nose is rich and inviting leading you through nuts, chocolate, white pepper and lavender. Sweet red fruit combined with a smoky warm earth character.

Over the tongue, and you will want to do this a few times, it is silky and balanced. Spices combine with ripe berry and cherry. Cardamom, nutmeg and mint balance against blue berry and black cherry. White pepper and mocha speak of the quality of this wine. The tannins are medium and the pallet complex.

"Vivino - Rather than labeling this Shiraz as powerful, intense or strong flavours I will go with "Lovely". Nothing wrong as it delivers what it should. Combination of spice, dark fruit and musty forest floor aromas, while the flavours are smooth, dark chocolate, mulberry and soft pepper"

This hand crafed wine impresses and is accessable already.

Platter 4.5 stars - a wine with texture and interest

A lovely light straw colour. Complex nose with some toffee, hay and white peach. Medium bodied palate with a rich creamy texture and some minerals. The wood is very well integrated with great balance, complemented with an almost creamy acidity. A wine to complement food but with enough excitement and freshness to drink on its own.

The wine is left on the primary lees for 11 months with no sulfur additions at all. 15% of the juice is fermented in large 500 liter Hungarian oak barrels to add depth and complexity. We are going for something with a creamy, rich palate and a lower natural acidity.

Newton Johnson Albarinio 2018

Micheal Fridjhon said - This is utterly delicious

This is one to try - a richness balanced by fresh fruit and touch of oak - if you like chard but not heavy wood this is a great find - 1 of only 2 in SA. 

There is a light sea spray scent on the nose that needed some coaxing from the glass. The palate is fresh and lively on the entry with citrus peel, orange zest and a hint of peach towards the finish that lends a soupçon of exoticism. This is an excellent Albariño that should give 3-4 years of pleasure, possibly more.

Carl Everson Chenin Blanc 2017

Was R190

94/100 points Tim Atkin

Tasting notes:
’Located on the cooler Slanghoek side of the Breedekloof region, this spontaneously fermented Chenin Blanc comes from a 1982 block. Rich, yet well balanced with the subtle oak usage that’s typical of the Opstal style. 2019-25.’ - Tim Atkin SA Report 2018, 94/100

Winemakers notes:
’The beauty of this wine is even though it stays the same each year (as it’s harvested from the same Single Vineyard classified block on the farm), each year is different. The 2017 vintage shows some restraint at first, even a bit shy, but then opens up to show quince and pineapple notes with a freshness and finesse ever present on the palate as yellow peach flavours run through your mouth. The distinctive depth and complexity of fruit we’ve learned to appreciate and love of the Carl Everson Chenin, is on show again with the 2017. These precious 35 year old vines, old French barrels, spontaneous fermentation and minimalistic cellar intervention in the end proclaim our Slanghoek terroir through this wine.’ - Attie Louw

Keet First Verse 2013

Rated 95/100 Tim Atkin

One of the finest Reds SA has at present.

Grapes from the finest vineyards on the slopes of the Simonsberg and Helderberg mountains provided the base for this wine, this Bordeaux blend of 32% Cabernet Franc, 27% Merlot, 23% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14% Petit Verdot and 4% Malbec was matured in French oak barrels for 18 months, extracting the finest oak aromas to compliment the layers and layers of delicious mixed red and black berry flavours.

Marrying traditional winemaking methods, science, art and the use of modern technology, this wine was gently handled and matured in the finest French oak barrels for eighteen months. To the sounds of Mozart, all the elements of this wine were blended, bottled and left to rest and mature for 12 months.

Tim Atkin, Master of Wine, gave the wine 95 points and
rated this wine as a very elegant Bordeaux blend with all
five varieties contributing to the poise and intensity of
the wine. "Seductively oaked with a refreshing finish".

Excellent balance between well integrated oak and fruit. White pepper dominates the nose, the wine explodes into ripe plush fruit on the palate.

"a kaleidoscope of black berry, violet, vanilla & white pepper aromas & flavours. The lush texture, seamless & complex structure adds to elegance & refinement" - Platter
