Second wine of Anwilka. A great cooperation success between Bruno PRATS (Château Cos d'Estournel), Hubert DE BOUARD (Château l'Angélus) and Klein Constantia. The name "UGABA" refers to a tradition of the Xhosa people, the second language group in South Africa after the Zulu. The Xhosa leaders designated warriors who had distinguished themselves by valiant deeds of bravery as UGABA men whose mission would be to maintain peace and order. Varietal: 84% Syrah, 12% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. Alcohol: 14% vol. Harvested by hand in crates, sorted before and after destemming, crushed over stainless steel fermentation vats.

Red Wine Blend of the Year - 2016, Platter 4.5 Stars. Tim Atkin MW 92 points. James Suckling 92 points. 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 successful blend, with the first commercial launch of the Hannibal label 12 years later. The name Hannibal was adopted as a symbolic expression of the synergy with the African elephants participating in linking the wine lands of France and Italy together two thousand years ago under the invading command of the classic Carthaginian general.

Tim Atkin 94 points. An impressive blend of Shiraz /Cabernet Sauvignon/ Petit Verdot/ Merlot from the former owner of Pichon Lalande.
Southern Right is re-defining Pinotage with this intense classically styled, clay-grown wine, packed with complex berry fruit, beautiful tannins and subtle wood spice. Full ripeness and the longer hang-time afforded by cooler sites, combined with the complex, more classic fruit aromas and structure resulting from clay-rich soil, make this wine a highly individual expression of South Africa's unique grape variety.
5 stars Platter’s 2017 South African Wine Guide - Again the top award in SA Wine Spectator 93/100 “Gorgeous, with a silky, persistent and racy structure guiding alluring rooibos tea, blood orange, damson plum and singed wood spice notes along." Steve Tanzer - 94 “South African Pinot noir does not get better than this.” Tim Atkin - 94
Kaapzicht’s second Pinot Noir vintage with more concentration, colour and character than the premiere vintage. A medium bodied, dry red wine with lovely sweet and sour cherries accompanied by elegant tannins.
Tim Atkin MW 93 points. With its enchanting garnet glow, vivacious display of purity of fruit and refined structure, the Pinot Noir from Paul Cluver Wine Estate delivers all the defining trademarks of great Pinot Noir. Pomegranate, cranberry, violet and raspberry notes dance on the nose. The bouquet of rich red berry is harmoniously carried through onto the palate where it marries with interesting notes of aniseed, seaweed and savoury umami. The complexity and balanced composition of its flavour profile plays in unison with its fine grainy tannins, making it a sensory symphony.
