Platter Guide Winery of the Year 2020. Platter 5 Stars. Tim Atkin MW 94 points.

Tim Atkin 94 points. 42% Sangiovese; 17% Nebbiolo; 15% Pinot Noir; 12% Shiraz; 7% Mourvedre; 7% Barbera. Originally prompted by the classic taste and palate of Italian varieties: Sangiovese and Nebbiolo. The importation of these grape varieties in 1989 led to the development of this highly popular Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephant participating in linking the wine lands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.

(Elgin Valley, South Africa) TASTING NOTES: Classic, restrained elegance with a mouth filling fruit core and is seamlessly poised with pronounced aromatics of fresh black plums, mulberries, violets and pencil shaving minerality. Tannins are supple and well structured with fresh acidity to support an opulent mid palate for texture and balance.

Carignan (34%), Syrah (33%), Pinotage (14%), Cinsaut (14%) and Grenache (5%). Wine Advocate 93 points. A blend of Carignan, Syrah, Cinsault, Pinotage and Grenache, the nose of the 2016 Elpidios is a solid expression of Rhône varietals in South Africa. Dried and candied red fruits on the nose express something more akin to a young Châteauneuf-du-Pape. The palate is precise, focused and spicy, with soft, dusty red fruit, dried herbs and soft, red spice tones. The finish lingers with precise red-fruit tones and oak. Medium to full-bodied, the wine is both elegant and enjoyable, ending with a long finish. There is a clear focus on precision...

Based on fruit from one sustainably farmed vineyard on granite in Paardeberg planted in the early 2000s, blended with a similar-age organically certified vineyard planted in deep clay soils north of Malmesbury. They describe Grenache as their ‘ultimate red variety … well suited to the Swartland in its droughts and harsh conditions’ – hence they are planting much more. In the context of dry-farmed land and poor soil they use mass-selection Grenache grafted on moderate-strength rootstocks to restrict yield.

Delicate on the nose, with herb infused notes of dark berries and a hint of cassis, the palate is lifted and energetic, with chalky tannins, and a floral perfume.

This is the fourth vintage of this wine after re-planting. Our idea has always been to make what is basically a single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from this unique vineyard. It is not a true single-vineyard in that we have blended in barrel selections of the best of our other vineyards. The Cabernet has a very intense cassis aroma with unique citrus-rind notes. It has a firmer tannin structure than many of our wines, but still with the elegance for which Jonkershoek Valley wines are known. This wine is based around the highest elevation vineyard on the estate, which at 550m is arguably one of Stellenbosch’s highest Cabernet vineyards. The...
