Marianne and Fons Aaldering's aspiration to produce one of South Africa's best wines began to come into fruition in 2004 when they bought a 24-hectare estate in Devon Valley, Stellenbosch. Read More...
This was the birth of Aaldering Vineyards & Wines, a company focused on delivering premium quality wines to wine lovers all around the world. Along the years a devoted team was gathered which characterizes itself as being young, professional, dynamic and international. And the wine they're making? Quite impressive! This Cab/Merlot is complex, flavorful and endearing. The nose is rife with dynamic earthy terroir, mixed plums and berries, black pepper, mint, eucalyptus, a touch of cedar and cigar box. The palate combines forward fruit, dried cherries and cranberries and kriek lambic, with earth and spice: baker's chocolate, gravel, river bed. Moderate tannins and ample acidity keep the lush viscosity buoyant and clean.

blend from South Africa is made by American, Mary-Lou Nash.

A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz, the 2011 Oro has a fresh, vibrant nose not dissimilar to a McLaren Vale with ebullient, mint-scented glossy black fruits.

Lingering and persistent this is quite polished showcasing excellent balance and delicious fruit with refined tannins. Drinking beautifully out of the gate this should drink impressively over the next 3-4 years.

months in French oak, the 2006 Ernie Els Signature almost scores a hole in one. It has a very sensual, harmonious bouquet with dark red fruits, mocha, cedar and a touch of tobacco, whilst the palate is beautifully balanced with silky smooth tannins. The 14.7% alcohol is barely noticeable on the finish with touches of orange rind enlivening the long finish. Allow this at least a couple of hours decanting to show its true potential. Superb".

Top-notch Cabernet for $6.99? You bet! This little gem kind of screamed “front-page” and upon tasting, we think you’ll agree! The wine proffers gobs of gorgeous, up-front fruit capturing Read More...
lush vectors of ripe plum, black cherry, boysenberry and black currant fruit deftly accented with sundry hints of spice, carob and espresso.Technically a blend of Cabernet (90%), Syrah (8%) and Petit Verdot (2%), we could ramble on about South Africa, the De Wet family who own the estate and their commitment to produce world class wine as well as the high quality of the 2008 vintage in South Africa, but why? This is perhaps the most “un-South African” wine we’ve ever tasted from South Africa!The wine’s bright fruit is clearly the star of the show. And while Excelsior’s finish showcases just a bit of this wine nation’s unique volcanic soil, we think you’ll agree that Excelsior could easily have emanated from such familiar locales as Napa or Bordeaux. The beauty of the bottle is the price as we don’t often see wines of this quality from either of these renowned regions coming in at the sub-$10 niveau.All in all, this is a tremendous wine bargain that deserves both a test drive and a place at your table. It’s perfectly suited to all of the season’s activities be they at the beach, on board, on the patio or at the pool. Your summer house red has arrived!

We are delighted to offer you this exciting discovery from South Africa as the Basson family were one of the first families to plant Carignan there. At the age of 17, young Cobus Basson Read More...
was helping his father plant vines when a tractor overturned and rolled onto him, causing the loss of a leg. Blessed with a generous sense of humor, he has been affectionately known amongst local farmers as “Houtbeen” (Pegleg) Basson. This is a medium-bodied wine with sumptuous red and black fruits. The color is medium ruby with a bouquet of strawberry preserves, plum and mulberry, which is reflected on the palate. The finish is medium in length and quite pleasing, leaving you ready for more. Wine Spectator says of this wine, “Bright and very peppery, with bouncy tobacco and spice-infused fig fruit flavors. Lively finish.” Adored wine critic and author Jancis Robinson also writes of Pegleg as a successful expression of Carignan.

s estate vineyards at the foot of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch.
The vineyards are farmed organically, and everything is done by hand. Grapes for the FMC are hand selected from a single block of low yielding Chenin bush vines planted in 1974. Each vine is pruned to 5 or 6 shoots, with 1 bunch per shoot. They are planted in Clovelly — a deep yellow sandy soil — on south-southwest-facing slopes.

fruit flavors."

WINERY NOTES - Our low-vigour, stony, clay-rich soil, cool maritime mesoclimate, naturally tiny yields of under 35 hl/ha and our philosophy of expressing our terroir in our wines – give rise to a certain tightness, tannin line and elevated length to balance the richness and generosity of our Pinot noir. Our Pinot noir is not overtly fruity, soft and “sweet” and it generally shows hints of that alluring savoury “primal” character along with a dark, spicy, complex primary fruit perfume.

A warmer harvest than usual, with extremely low yields and longer than usual hang-times. Higher than average rainfall in November and December resulted in the need for careful disease control, but this was successful and 2011 was a logistically easy and high quality harvest. We experienced lower than average winter rainfall and higher than average rainfall for the period of budbreak to veraison. Rainfall was also higher than average for January and February. This contributed to healthy canopies and absence of stress.
