94 points Wine & Spirits: "Drought conditions followed by a cool harvest season produced a stunning version of Adi Badenhorst’s entry-level Chenin. He took an unusual approach in 2018, harvesting the fruit over the course of 12 days and adding each day’s fruit to the already-fermenting musts. All of it was whole-bunch pressed, and one-quarter was fermented in old casks, the rest in tanks. Left on its lees for seven months with occasional stirring, the final wine is as deep and rich in flavor as its yellow hue predicts: It moves from waxy apple flavors to...

90 points Wine Spectator: "Elegant, showing a gentle texture, with intense acidity giving energy to the flavors of yellow apple, lime and honeysuckle. Salty mineral elements emerge midpalate, leaving a savory aftertaste. *Smart Buy* (AZ)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: #65 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 2019 This project is headed by Vincent Carême of Loire Valley fame. Inspired by the South African landscape (and perhaps also by his wife, Tania, who hails from the Cape region), he has decided to create this southern expression of Chenin Blanc.

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.

The "Little j" blends of Joostenberg were made to be served with the food at the restaurant of this estate, which is the oldest in South Africa. The wine is almost wholly Chenin Blanc with a dollop of Viognier. According to the winery: "A medium-bodied, fresh and complex white wine. Bold guava and melon aromatics and some intriguing floral notes (from the touch of Viognier). The refreshing acidity is balanced by a small amount of residual sugar."

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.

Wine Enthusiast: "There's a lush red cherry, plum and strawberry character right upfront on the nose of this sunset-colored rosé. There's almost a meaty accent as well, lending some interesting richness to the fruit profile. The texture is smooth and rounded, with medium weight and just enough acidity and texture to counter. (LB)" (05/2019) Wine Spectator: "Pretty strawberry and white cherry fruit glides through, with a flash of savory on the plump finish. (JM, Web Only-2018)"

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 ...


Wine & Spirits: "From the estate formerly known as Buitenverwachtig, this is fresh and tangy with notes of lime and red grapefruit. A little spice and some vegetal notes give it complexity, and point it toward a Sichuan green-bean stir-fry." (08/2019) Wine Spectator: "Refreshing, with notes of grapefruit and bitter lemon oil. Expressive and mouthwatering. Drink now through 2023. (AZ)" (10/2019)

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 ...

90 points Decanter: "This méthode cap classique (South African fizz made in the same way as Champagne) from SA stalwart Graham Beck has a lovely creamy red fruit and apple character, with a rich mousse and brioche finish. It has a vibrant raspberry acidity and a long finish. Great value. (JB)" (10/2017) Wine Spectator: "Peach, white cherry and bergamot notes mingle here, backed by a hint of watermelon rind on the lightly coarse finish. (JM, Web Only—2014)" James Suckling: "A fresh and fruity sparking wine with a light cherry and lemon character. Mediu...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A pale yellow color, this wine smells fresh, vibrant and inviting, with lively aromas of citrus, lemon-lime, yellow apple, green melon and a touch of mineral dust. Lightweight and well balanced, it has a bright acidic seam and fresh, zippy citrus and green apple tones, with hints of sea breeze and limestone minerality. Bright and sassy, this is well balanced and oh-so-easy to like and drink. *Editors' Choice* (LB)" (05/2019) Wine Spectator: "Open-knit, featuring yellow apple and cantaloupe notes, with a nice beam of acidity ...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut, which carries six grams per liter of residual sugar and was disgorged December 2016, is an equal blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. It has a fresh lime and sea spray bouquet, well defined with a light honeysuckle aroma. The palate is well balanced with citrus peel on the entry. It might not be as persistent as other South African MCCs, but it is bounding with freshness and delivers a tangy orange-pith finish. How how many champagnes can you get change from with a twenty dollar bill? (NM)" (04/2017) Vinous: ...

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."
