VARIETAL: 41% Cabernet Franc, 30% Merlot, 28% Cabernet Sauvignon and 1% Petit Verdo

REGION/APPELATION: Western Cape, South Africa

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

"Part of the Anthonij Rupert range since 1986, Optima is a Cabernet Franc-dominated Bordeaux blend from Franschhoek and Darling. Floral and leafy, it's all about balance and freshness, rather than raw power and concentration. Tangy and tobaccoey with 35% new wood. 2020-24." – Tim Atkin SA Special Report 2019

Delightful interplay of blackcurrant, cassis, violet perfume and an earthy richness. The wine feels silky, supple and smooth when first it hits the palate. Flavours of dark berry fruit, Christmas pudding, cigar box and spice then make their presence felt. Beautifully poised and balanced with neither fruit nor oak dominating. Good backbone and lithe body. The oak is sympathetic and supportive. A delightful blend with an aftertaste which goes on and on, making it ideal for food.

Protea cabernet sauvignon 2018

PRODUCT NUMBER: 545640

CASE CONFIGURATION: 12 x 750 ml

LISTING:  BCLS EXCLUSIVE

VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon

REGION/APPELATION: Western Cape, South Africa

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

Dark berry fruit, spice and brush of tobacco on the nose. Richly fruited palate - with cassis, black berries and plum to the fore. The tobacco and spice notes of the nose are also apparent, along with deep fruitcake flavours and hints of licorice. Gentle grip and backbone make for a beautifully supple, soft-textured wine but with good intensity, body and structure. Supple and generous with a deliciously long aftertaste.

2017 Cape of Good Hope Chenin Blanc

PRODUCT NUMBER: 532283

CASE CONFIGURATION: 6 x 750 ml

LISTING:  WHOLESALE

VARIETAL: Chenin Blanc

REGION/APPELATION: Western Cape, South Africa

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13.9%

TASTING NOTES:

Enticing stonefruit aromas - necatarine and peach with a tinge of heoneyed almonds. The same flavours are apparent in the mouth where they are joined by a touch of green melon. Bright and vivid acid lifts the broad palate and keeps it fresh and bibrant, adding a pithy lemon zest nuance too. The weight and concentration of the fruit is impressive and the flavours linger. Beautifully balanced and rich.

VARIETAL: Cabernet Sauvignon

REGION/APPELATION: Western Cape, South Africa

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

"Densely packed, this is showing some signs of maturity, with hints of coffee and dark earth peeking out from the core of steeped plum, blackberry and plum fruit flavors, but there's still a wall of loamy grip to sort through on the finish. For fans of the hefty style." - JM, Wine Spectator (2017)

Blackcurrant, cassis and violets on the bouquet which takes time to unfurl. The palate offers up more cassis, fruitcake and blackcurrants, tinged with deep mocha notes and a hint of violets. Refined and elegant with a layered, structured complexity. A soft, silky and seductive wine which lingers long

VARIETAL: Sauvignon Blanc

REGION/APPELATION: Elandskloof

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 14.0%

TASTING NOTES:

Bold tropical granadilla- and gooseberry notes tinged with grapefruit and lime zest. Just a vague hint of flint. The entry is bold and assured with crisp, zingy grapefruit and granadilla flavour. Stonefruit succulence then takes over and in turn makes way for a flinty mineral twist. Lovely taut body and structure with good length and breadth and a lingering, soft elderflower finish.
