Neal Martin writes: "Boekenhoutskloof is another of the few wineries of this scale that has undergone a lot of investment in recent years. I took a brief look at their barrel cellar, accessed through a long tunnel with winemaker Gottfied Mokke. “The first bottling that was done in the new cellar was the 2015,” he told me as I surveyed row upon row of barrels and several tiers high. “They are based on the OXO(2) revolving system so they don’t have to be moved to be racked. This has enabled us to shorten the élevage. The wines used to spend longer time in ...

The Little J Red is a bistro red blend consisting of 86% Syrah, 5% Mourvedre, 5% Cinsault, and 4% Grenache. This is an unprentious, generous wine made from a selection of vineyards in mainly the AgterPaarl area (part of the Paarl appelation). 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.

As its playful name suggests, this spicy red is a Syrah-dominated blend, featuring classic Rhône varietals. David Finlayson, owner and winemaker at Edgebaston, created this red with the joy of the everyday in mind. It’s a fruit-forward style, bursting with luscious black cherry and cassis flavors, while retaining a spicy edge, definitive structure, and a clean finish. David employs only stainless-steel tanks rather than oak barrels in making this wine, to highlight the fruit character. His recommended pairing for this charming little wine is pizza.

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 John X Merriman is the spiciest vintage to date according to Murray Barlow, due to the cooler growing season that did not go past 30 degrees Celsius during the season. Matured in 35% new oak for 20 months, that spice-box element does percolate through the red berry fruit on the nose, touches of bay leaf and melted tar emerging with time. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin on the entry, a fine seam of acidity, grippy and quite assertive at first, but calmer towards the finish with that...


94 points Wine Spectator: "A tightly wound but well-crafted example, this needs a little bit of air at the moment, but will be better after a few years of cellaring. Elegant, featuring notes of damson plum, black tea and lavender, with juicy acidity and firm, integrated tannins providing support. Shows balance, intensity and depth. (JM)" (05/2019) 93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Columella was matured for 12 months in 10% new oak and then 12 months in old foudres. There is something warm and comforting about the nose: blueberry, crushed violet, a touch of b...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Features juicy energy, with a mix of bitter cherry, blood orange and raspberry coulis flavors. Light tea and mineral notes score the finish. Drink now through 2019. (JM)" (08/2018) K&L Notes: Grapes for Kloof Street Swartland Rouge come from up to eight sustainably farmed vineyard parcels in different parts of the Swartland, from vines aged 12-40 years. The blend changes each vintage depending on the character that best displays the classic Swartland style. The grapes are 75% destemmed and 25% whole-cluster pressed, and then ...

From the winery: "Vrede Pinot Noir hails from a steep, northeast-facing slope in the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley with low-vigour, stony, clay-rich Bokkeveld shale soil. This wine displays richness and generosity with an opulent floral and dark berry perfume. The clay soil lends structure and impressive base notes to the wine. ? Not flashy or overly fruity, the wine shows depth, purity and structure – characteristic of the site’s low-vigour, stony, clay-rich shale soil."

92 points Decanter: "Syrah with 4% Carignan, 2% Grenache, 2% Cinsault, 1% Tinta Barroca and 1% Mourvèdre. Beautiful notes of sweet grilled herbs, barbecued and cured meat, fleshy, sappy black berry fruits and tapenade leading to a deliciously distinguished long finish. Real class for the money." (09/2019) Vinous: "The 2017 Kloof Street Swartland Rouge, matured for 12 months in used oak, includes a touch of Tinta Barocca. The bright cranberry and raspberry bouquet is slightly earthy. The palate is medium-bodied and a little more assertive than previous ...

92 points Vinous: "The 2015 Rubicon had been a source of contention prior to my visit, hailed by some respected commentators as one of the Cape’s greats and then almost pilloried in a contemporaneous blind tasting. It is a blend of 61% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 4% Petit Verdot, each fermented separately before blending. It was matured for 18 months in 66% new oak and the remainder second-fill. So what do I make of the wine? It is clear in color with quite a deep core. The bouquet is refined and focused, offering attractive mi...

93 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, with white peach, heather and lemon verbena flavors at the core, framed by savory herbal details and salty notes. Stylistically precise and focused, this features a stunning structure that needs a bit more time, but there is no doubt that this will develop beautifully. (AZ)" (12/2019)


92 points James Suckling: "A blue-fruited and deliciously fresh syrah that shows blueberries, black peppers and Chinese spices. Medium-bodied, linear and refined with polished tannins and a succulent, violet-flavored finish. Screw cap. Drink or hold." (06/2018) 92 points Vinous: "The 2016 Syrah is 100% whole-bunch fruit, and I think this gives it the edge over the 2015. It has a very fresh, focused nose with more edginess than the previous vintage, offering touches of peppermint and dried herbs. The palate is very well balanced with fine tannin - quite...

From the importer: "The hefty Cinsault component will ensure excellent aging and enough suppleness for drinking young. Perfumed, peppery, spicy, smokey aromas, with ripe red fruit notes. The palate is supple, smooth on the entry but with enough grip and freshness to finish dry and refreshing."
Price: $14.99


92 points Wine Spectator: "This combines power and grace, with a smooth texture and plush tannins behind the notes of damson plum, mulberry, bay leaf and pepper. Bright acidity gives this precision and a lifted character midpalate. (AZ)" (12/2019)
