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.

Now with a name like Black Pearl and a sassy Cab/Shiraz blend, you might be forgiven if you thought this was Australian Pirate wine. But, you would be a bit off the mark. This surprising Read More...
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.

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.

classic Bordeaux grape varieties. Winemaker Albie Koch applies a meticulous approach to winemaking, for example, using gravity instead of pumps in the winery. Judging by their website, the inspiration is Bordeaux, though stylistically these wines are New World to their core. These are big, powerful, quite alcoholic wines that are more reminiscent of some cult Napa Valley wines and they would certainly appeal to those who appreciate that style.

Downes Family Vineyards is situated in the Elgin Valley within the Kogelberg Biosphere with mountains on their western boundary and the Palmiet River forming the eastern boundary. Read More...
The Elgin Valley which has long been regarded as the apple and pear center of South Africa, now has some of the country's most highly regarded winemakers establishing vineyards in the area, testament to its obvious winemaking potential.

They focus on viticulture principles in order to reflect their commitment to winemaking as an expression of terroir. Technological surveys ensured that the correct grape variety, clone and rootstock combination was planted in the diverse ancient soil types. The vineyards benefit from the high altitude cool temperatures, as well as an abundant rainfall throughout the year and the prevailing cold summer wind, known as the "Black South-Easter" blowing in from the ocean 12 kilometers away. Viticulture practices and canopy management, which enhance longer ripening periods, capture in the wines the broad spectrum of flavors created in the cool climate of this unique terroir!

The focus of this wine is based on a vineyard component arising from low yielding Table Mountain Sandstone soils. Using neutral yeasts, Shannon Sauvignon Blanc expresses very distinctive and concentrated primary fruit aromas of asparagus, citrus, and some capsicum in a minerally and flinty style. The clay/shale soils however, provide the Sauvignon with flavors on the riper side of the fruit spectrum and with more structure for a broader palate. The blending in of naturally fermented Semillon, matured on the lees, provides a fuller mouth feel and adds to the complexity of the wine. This wine was vinified in a style that enhances the aging potential of Sauvignon Blanc.

This is easy-drinking, tasty wine ideal for lazy Saturdays, fall barbecues or sporting events (tailgate or tube).

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!

The Beacon Shiraz is produced using grapes from an Agter-Paarl farm owned by Willie Dreyer. It is a beautiful site and there are two blocks of vineyard that provide grapes to our cellar. Read More...
A trellised block provides grapes used in our our standard label Fairview Shiraz. An untrellised block, grown on rough shale soils on a gently sloping mound, is where the fruit for The Beacon Shiraz is grown. These bush vines struggle through the rocky soil surrounding the trigonometric beacon that gives the wine its name. When asked for the simple reason why this block is selected for a single vineyard wine, our wine makers are very clear – it’s all about the soil.

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.

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.
