Platter Guide Winery of the Year 2020. Tim Atkin MW 95 points. Boekenhoutskloof’s Semillon is the only wine that Gottfried Mocke makes from a flat vineyard – and what a site it is, planted in 1902 on François Malherbe’s farm. Blended with a 40% contribution from much steeper La Colline, it’s subtly wooded, with lanolin, citrus and some stony sap, lovely balance and just a hint of extra perfume from a splash of Muscat’Alexandrie. Drink 2021-28. (95 Points, Tim Atkin MW)
Wines are registered with the South African Vegan Society. A world class Chenin, intense and complex. Naturally fermented in clay amphora and described by Catherine herself as 'peaches on a wet stone' it should develop beautifully with age. The wine offers layers of ripe yellow fruit, pineapple, white flowers with a mineral, flinty aftertaste. It has a delicious mid-weight texture with a long, lingering finish. (Kogelberg Biosphere, Elgin Valley, South Africa) TASTING NOTE: Our crafted Chenin is meticulously grown in the cool Elgin Valley and fermented in handmade, old world styled clay amphorae. These key attributes afford a wine with broad...
Darling Cellars Arum Fields Chenin Blanc has an explosive tropical nose of ripe peaches, pears and most definitely guava. This wine is well balanced with great structure and a good mid palate with guava flavours following through on the taste and a well-rounded finish. A great value wine that will compliment seafood, salads and light dishes.
The nose shows a hint of reduction before stone fruit, dried herbs, a little waxy character, earth and spice while the palate has great depth and texture for a wine with an alcohol of just 12.5%. Layers of flavour, nicely integrated acidity and a gently savoury finish.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 95/100. Chenin blanc (49%), Roussanne (10%), Sémillon (9%), Marsanne (8%), Clairette blanche (7%), Viognier (6%), Verdelho (5%), Grenache blanc (4%), Colombar (2%). The Aristargos 2020 is yet again predominantly both Chenin blanc and Old Vines driven (Chenin blanc, Sémillon, Clairette blanche and Colombar), and the focus remains on the...
'This wine, incorporating grapes from seven separate vineyards on various soils with planting dates ranging from 1968 to 1985, just gets more and more refined. The nose shows pear, peach and citrus to go with potpourri and a touch of flinty reduction. The palate, meanwhile, is pure and concentrated with lively acidity and a saline finish. Each component part combining seamlessly, the end-result is a wine of particular poise and luminosity.' – Christian Eedes, Winemag.co.za, 96/100.
Tim Atkin MW 92 points "To make up for the variety's comparatively low acidity in the Swartland, David and Nadia Sadie used seven days of skin contact on this old-vine Semillon, produced for the first time in 2018. Elegant, bready and showing some tannic structure, it's a promising début from this brilliant couple." - Tim Atkin MW, South African Special Report 2019.

White Wine of the Year SA Wine Magazine 2021 95 points Winemag.co.za Gold Medal, IWC 2020. 2 Trophies, IWC 2020. This show stopping white displays effusive aromas of white flower, stone fruit, honey and toast which erupt into opulent flavours of pear, orange blossom, caramel and spice. It’s a world class wine offering that strikes a brilliant balance between lush fruit and crisp, mouth-watering acidity.

Napoleon Bonaparte's personal favourite. The legend lives on. James Suckling 98-99 points. “Extraordinary aromas...it maintains citrusy freshness and texture... Always energetic and vivid. Great length to this. Goes on for minutes. It’s a sweet wine to drink when young, to marvel over the intensity and verve, yet also one to age for decades.” 500ml bottle.
