Wine Of The Month
introducing Gabrielskloof Amphora Sauvignon Blanc. Some quite amazing tasting notes:
“White pear, apple cordial and a faintly floral aroma lift this vintage away from typical Sauvignon territory, though traces of blackcurrant leaf and fresh pea shoots remain. Grapefruit rind and a wet stoniness make for a focused and textured palate, the finish given length by a leesy, cardamom biscuit character.”

Wine Of The Week
Labri Chardonnay 2022
One cannot mention La Bri, without referring to the past, as the property is an essential piece of the South African wine history and culture.
According to the Franschhoek Museum, the original grant of La Bri is one of the oldest Huguenot-allocated farms in the Franschhoek Valley
It was one of the first of nine farms granted to members of the main group of Huguenots who sought sanctuary in the Cape in 1688.
The name ‘La Bri’ is probably derived from the region in France but we prefer the French translation for ‘the refuge’, a perfect name for this property, as it is safely nestled in the imposing amphitheatre of the Franschhoek valley.

WINE OF THE MONTH
La Bri Merlot 2020
La Bri (L’Abri) is French for “The Haven” – a perfect description of our boutique wine estate nestled in the amphitheatre of the Franschhoek mountains. Here you will find “signature styled wines created with passion” by our winemaker Irene de Fleuriot.
This Merlot has a rich garnet colour. The nose is a mix of fresh juicy cherry and red plum fruit. A juicy soft, fresh yummy dark chocolate palate with integrated tannins, structured acidity and a long finish
Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel and the wine was then aged for 20 months in predominantly 300Lt French oak barrels. The new wood component is 10%
Each of our wines is linked to a specific flower – the characteristics of the wine are symbolized by the flower on the label.
Amaryllis belladonna (March Lily)
An extremely beautiful and elegant, pink flower that occurs naturally around the Cape. The cultivar Merlot is also seen as being elegant, refined and feminine. The common name belladonna refers to a woman who has both beauty and character – much like our Merlot

Wine Of The Week
Le Riche Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
The coveted Le Riche Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is the flagship of our range, blended using only Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from our best performing vineyard blocks from Stellenbosch. These selections are then micro-vinified in open-top fermenters. Extended maceration takes place in order to increase the overall age-ability of the final wine along with aging in oak.
Classic Cabernet aromas of blackcurrants, black cherry and cassis. Brooding and dense yet showing great freshness on the nose. Lead pencil shavings and cedar aromas add to the overall sophistication and elegance. On entry the palate is rich, velvety and opulent yet remarkably fresh and linear showcasing black fruit, a creamy mouthfeel and dark chocolate finish. A deliciously firm, appetising acidity is balanced by round, structured tannins. A wine with a wonderfully long, complex finish showcasing great potential for maturation; A true investment. One of our best vintages yet!
