Wine Of The Week – Hermanus Pitersfrontein Posmeester Merlot 2022

If it were not for the postmaster of 1902, we’d have no name.

Back-To-School Power Up

 

A wine designed for everyday enjoyment with a focus to be approachable and accessible to all palates. A small percentage of Mourvedre (8%) blended with the Merlot brings a warmth and finishing touch to this wine. We finalise the blend before the wine goes into old French oak barrels (3rd, 4th and 5th fills). Our aim is to create a wine that showcases plush fresh fruit (red and purple fruit) with a particular drinkability, supported with nuances of milk chocolate. On the palate this wine presents a generous offering from entrance to finish: lush and juicy entrance, supple and persistent tannin with good length. This wine will age for 2-3 years, provided stored under optimum conditions.

Durbanville Hills Wine Of The Week

Durbanville Hills Our vineyards are situated in one of the Cape’s coolest wine-producing regions, all located a mere 10km from the ocean, bathing the slopes with cool ocean breezes and moist air to allow for optimal ripening.

The rich diversity of the slopes that give rise to the name Durbanville Hills, provide a topography with varying altitudes and aspects. This together with the Mediterranean climate, hours of sunshine, rich soils and moderate rainfall, all combine to allow our winemakers to perfectly match cultivars to the best location.

The result is a range of cool climate wines with intense fruit appeal, finesse and complexity that reflect their unique provenance.

We released our first vintage in 1999 in a joint venture with local farms and the then Distell (now HEINEKEN Beverages). Today the nine-member farms – Klein Roosboom, Ongegund, Hillcrest, Maastricht, Morgenster, Bloemendal, Hooggelegen, Welbeloond and De Grendel – are all located within a 10km radius from the cellar, continuing the legacy of hundreds of years of wine-growing expertise in the area.

Together with our grape partners, our winemakers and viticulturists, work together as a team to ensure only the best grapes are grown and hand-selected for their outstanding quality.

Ernie Els Major Series Merlot 2021 – Wine Of The Week At The SuperSpar

Ernie Els Wines

From the renowned Helderberg region of Stellenbosch, we bring you an award-winning selection of wines. These wines are not just named after the South African golf legend Ernie Els, but are also the result of the masterful craftsmanship of winemaking legend Louis Strydom, adding a touch of prestige to every bottle.

Embodying the beloved character and esteemed reputation of our namesake, our four collections—Signature, Major Series, Big Easy, and Proprietor’s—offer wines that are not just iconic but also unique in their style, exclusivity, and generosity. Whether it’s a toast to exceptional achievement, a boost to the entertainment factor, or a celebration of great friendship, Ernie Els Wines always elevates the occasion to a level of excellence.

The winery was officially opened in 2005, and since then, it has focused on producing a range of wines, with a particular focus on Cabernet Sauvignon. Recent renovations have transformed the winery into an iconic symbol of the Helderberg region.

Major Series Merlot 2021

Rubied with a violet core. Vividly fragrant; black and red cherries, plum compôte, printer’s ink, wild raspberry leaf, forest. Molten cherries come to the fore of the palate, cresting on a wave of airy, pillowy tannins; then blackberries, plums, and tangy redcurrants. The wine rises in sapidity towards the finish, going savoury with crushed coriander spice in the echo.

Ernie Els Major Series Merlot 2021 is available at TOPS

Wine Of The Week -Baleia Vinho Rochas 2022

Tasting Note

Wine from Rock – Made from Tempranillo and Syrah grapes grown in pure limestone soils, that are so hard and rocky that the vine struggles to grow and thus yields a small, concentrated crop. We respect the fruit by making use of amphorae and large wooden foudres in the cellar, which highlights the unique minerality and makes for a tantalizing wine bursting with character. Lekker red wine…

Wine Of The Week – Newton Johnson Falkirk

 

Wine Of The Week

OVERVIEW

‘Falkirk’, Scotland is from where the Newton family originated, meaning ‘speckled church’ for the stone structure that has stood there since the 6th century. The name represents the 1½ hectare vineyard site of deep deposits of stone and rock where the only Rhône wine varieties are to be found on the farm. Bushvines of Grenache, Syrah, and Mourvèdre were planted to discover the contrasting nuances these vines produce from this Granite-derived soil.

TASTING NOTES

A wine with startling evolution, at first with grape stems and herbaceous fynbos that expand to deep plum fruit, Christmas cake and varied spices of clove and white pepper. The palate is voluptuous and juicy with tension in the tannins to hold the flavour in to the finish.

 Winemaking

The grapes are packed in to large-surface area crates to limit pressure on the bunches. The day’s harvest is cooled down overnight to 8ºC in the winery’s refrigerated cold room. The bunches are sorted on a conveyor, destemmed, and fall directly to the fermenter. No sulphur is used in the winemaking until after malolactic fermentation, allowing diverse micro-organisms from the grape itself to flourish unrestrained in the spontaneous fermentation. This cuvée also contains 50% of whole bunches. Cold maceration ensues for 5 to 7 days at 8 to 10°C. All parcels are fermented with indigenous yeasts, and only pigeage (punching down) applied for extraction. The wine spends approximately 25 days on the skins before pressing. After pressing the wine is racked and left to complete its malolactic ‘fermentation’ and maturation in barrel on its lees.
