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. The palate is full-bodied and very rich with an almost honeyed texture. Moderately tannic, very forward and opulent with a ravishing, polished finish, this is a very modern, svelte Cabernet/Shiraz that is well crafted by winemaker Mary-Lou.

and pure white peach, flint and honeysuckle notes racing along. Drink now. 4,000 cases imported."

Long referred to as “Bayten” by locals, Buitenverwachting (meaning beyond expectations) is located on the east-facing slopes of the Constantiaberg on the Cape of Good Hope. Ocean breezes make this area one of South Africa’s coolest winegrowing areas, allowing for slow ripening, resulting in grapes that achieve full ripeness while retaining fresh acidity. This wine was aged on the lees for three months prior to bottling. Bayten offers a mélange of citrus and stone fruits with honeysuckle, jasmine and green notes on the nose. The palate reveals peaches, apricots, lemon rind and lemongrass with a nice balance of richness and refreshing crispness on the finish.

A blend of Syrah (55%), Grenache Noir (20%), Cabernet Sauvignon (16%), Cinsault (5%) and Viognier, respectively. This has a distinctive spicy lift to its core of red fruits aromatically. Read More...
Think of white pepper, a hint of gaminess and raspberry, red currant and dark cherry juice as well as a lifting white stone fruit component on the nose. Medium fuller bodied, this is not a heavy wine in the palate, yet it is richly flavored as well as showing good fruit concentration and exceptional fruit intensity. Seamless with finely tuned tannins this offers up a beautiful sleek, suave texture packed with a core of assorted red fruit compote flavors. 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.

s demands for more-- until now! The 2012 vintage is in and it’s another winner. This wine is a beautiful Bordeaux-style blend from the premiere winegrowing region of Stellenbosch on the western cape of South Africa. When the buyer and other Hi-Time staff tried it, we were blown away by this delicious wine! In a blind tasting, one would be hard pressed to guess where this hails from. The balance, complexity and length of this delicious bottling represents an astounding value, which competes very favorably with other red wines from around the world.

This wine begins to draw you in with its deep ruby color and the stained tears on the stemware give a preview of the nicely extracted wine. On the nose, dark fruit, red fruit and cassis are framed by well-integrated French oak, which is complementary rather than obtrusive. Baking spices, sweet pipe tobacco and a dusting of cocoa are evident. A floral element and freshly tilled earth add to the complex bouquet. On the palate, a perfect union of fruit and tannin lay the groundwork for a marriage of flavors with enough acidity to provide lift and definition. The silky tannins envelop the Kirsch and dark berry flavors and caress the tongue, leading to a long finish. This is a wine with structure, but also elegance and finesse which can be enjoyed now or over the next five to eight years. Yealands Family Wines has been awarded New Zealand’s Most Sustainable Winery and International Green Company of the Year 2014.

“Thinking differently is what we do at Yealands. Crafing award-winning wines in harmony with nature has seen us lead the world in sustainable winegrowing. But most importantly, it means great tating wines which don’t cost the earth.” - Peter Yealands

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!

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.
