Balance Cabernet $12.00
Surprisingly light in style. Nice red currant with blackberry and obvious oak. Meant for a warm evening with burgers or chicken on a patio. Great bang for the buck. No weird funk that often comes with affordable S.A. reds.
Sun and Air Cinsault $13.00
One of the parents of Pinotage but not showing the wicked funk that Pinotage can often bring. Definitely earthy, with some smoked beet on the nose and brambly cooked raspberry Serve with a light chill and it goes great with Asian or spicy Mexican fare. Softens with a little air as well. Just a fun little wine at a great price.
A delightful Sav Blanc from S.A. Zesty nose of citrus, passionfruit, pear, and lemongrass with faint, clean stone. On the palate its lively and clean, definitely not overworked like many N.Z. versions. Has body from a little lees and skin contact, finishes with a faint gooseberry and mango.
La Brune The Valley Pinot $16.00
A Burgundian Pinot from S.A.? Yeah right! Well they did it. Bright fruit from clone 777, bit of 668 for structure and the coolest region in the Cape make for the most reserved and classic Pinot you'll find. Purity of fruit, mouthwatering acidity and loads of subtle nuance hiding in their.
