South Africa


Sun and Air Cinsault 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.



Babylonstoren Babylonstoren $21.00

A beautiful expression of Shiraz from the equally beautiful area of South Africa. Among the vast, sprawling, organic gardens of the property lies vinyards where this Shiraz originates. Showing robust black berries, meaty, savory bacon fat, violets and pepper. Soft on the palate and just enough acid to pull it together.



Luddite Saboteur Luddite Saboteur $27.00

100% estate grown fruit from Walker Bay, South Africa. With a growing reputation for quality wines, this blend shows us exactly what South Africa is capable of. Shiraz dominant with Mouvedre and Cab Sav adding a little umph to the blend. Eucalyptus, sweet jalapeno peppery note and black fruits. Big body and plenty of structure. Have a glass ready with your next roast or ribeye!

  • Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    #2 Sweet Sunset Chocolate Merlot

    First lets say that this is Not ChocoVine. This wine is actually made with eighty five percent Merlot and than has natural chocolate cream added to the mix. This is the wine for anyone looking for sweet red or the chocolate lover at home. Great gift for the holidays. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Armas de Guerra Rose

    #3 Armas de Guerra Rose

    My heavens! 50+ year old, organic Mencia vines from some of the highest vineyards in Bierzo. Subtle aromas of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white pepper play with clean river rock minerality touched by zesty key lime. Balance and finish are tied together with a vibrating acidity. Structured and executed like a world class ballerina doing flamenco. Sells out every year for good reason. Lighter than Provence, a different planet than White Zin. The only hard part is only opening one bottle at a time. (behind by 2 bottles)

  • Schieferkopf

    Schieferkopf

    Acid freaks rejoice! This dry Riesling shows the classic stone minerality and petrol on the nose with floral aromatics as well. The palate yields citrus, green apple and stonefruits with mouth watering acidity. A great food wine or one simply just to drink.

  • Dancing Pines Gin

    Dancing Pines Gin

    A beautiful Colorado original. An aromatic, dry, refreshing spirit crafted with 6 botanicals, each contributing a unique component to the harmonious whole. Lovely bright citrus comes through on the finish prompting another sip, and another..

  • Bermatinger

    Bermatinger

    Do you love Burgundy, but not the price tag attached to it? This spatburgunder from Baden gives you a stellar example of what pinot can be outside of France. Red fruits and floral notes accompanied by that earthy, forest floor, mushroom that Burgundy is known for. Beautifully balanced, definitely one that should have a place at your table.

  • Maimai Syrah

    Maimai Syrah

    So pretty. Brings a clear nose of Gimblett Gravels terroir beneath lush soft blue and black fruit with lovely violet and lavender notes. Palate is clean, balanced and very approachable. Just a hint of the Northern Rhone's meatiness but mostly bright fruit and enough acidity to hold it in check. Maybe the best NZ Syrah out there??
