Club Wines - September 2019


Pairs With

Chicken and Seafood

Southern Right Sauvignon Blanc

Right balance of Old World minerality and length with hints of New World palate coverage and body. It is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from clay-rich soil has added an intense mid-palate structural component and addition overall complexity to this wine.

Pairs with

Fish, Seafoods & Salads

Ashbourne Sauvignon Blanc/Chardonnay

Fresh, vibrant, perfumed Sauvignon blanc, filled-out and enriched with a carefully judged unwooded Chardonnay component, make this a beautifully balanced and highly versatile wine. More than two decades of family experience have gone into this unique blend.

Pairs With

Rich creamy fish, chicken or vegetable dishes

KWV The Mentors Chenin Blanc

Intense flavours of honeysuckle, apricot and nougat supported by notes of green figs, limes and macadamias. It is truly a polished creation. The creamy and textured palate is complemented by pure fruit, with a clean and vibrant finish.

Pairs with

Mature beef, venison, lamb and ostrich dishes with berry jus or strong cheese.

Spier 21 Gables Pinotage

This hand crafted boutique wine has been matured for more than 18 months in French oak barrels and bottle matured. Intense Ruby Garnet in colour. Plums, dry prunes, damsons and cherries with hints of dry mint, cinnamon and violets and notes of spices and herbs. Full and rich, juicy and appealing. This wine is packed with ripe red and black fruits, spicy and peppery with a soft middle palate finish and notes of bitter dark chocolate.

This wine is made with carefully selected and hand-picked grapes.

Pairs With

Game, BBQ Meats and curry

Ashbourne Pinotage/Cinsault

Lower alcohol unwooded blend of Pinotage and Cinsault. It is made from grapes sourced from old vineyards in the Swartland appellation, for open generosity of palate in the year of production. The richness and depth of the Pinotage is freshened by the lightness and brightness of the Cinsault.

Pairs With

BBQ Meats

Eekhoring Red

Cape blend of Cinsaut, Syrah and Pinotage

This Cape blend is made in a light-to-medium bodied style. It had a very light press, giving it just enough 'grip', but not too much. Think of it like a soft, flavourful minute steak just lightly seared, with a few good cracks of black pepper.


Pairs With

Pork, Chinese food, mild curries, liver pâté and baked puddings.

Nederburg Chenin Blanc

Intense aromas of sweet-melon, gooseberry and kiwi with lovely citrus undertones. A well-balanced wine with delicate layers of stone fruit and citrus undertones. The wine has a fresh finish with lime notes towards the end.

Pairs with

Thai green salad or seafood

Barton Pinot Noir Rose

Onion skin in colour with a fruity nose. Soft and elegant with cherries and raspberries on the palate with a prolonged aftertaste.

Pairs With

Fish, Seafoods and salads


Eekhoring White Blend

Eekhoring is Afrikaans for "squirrel", and an exciting new collaboration between us and the talented guys behind De Kleine Wijn Koöp in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It's predominantly Chenin Blanc, with an eclectic cocktail of alternative varieties, mostly from the Swartland and from vines up to 38-years-old. The grapes were fermented in a mixture of stainless steel and old oak barrels. It has the hallmarks of the great Chenin-based Cape white blends: a textural, multi-layered, crisp, with floral aromas, some beeswax, then plush stone fruit on the palate, finishing dry and long.

Pairs With

Sunday roast

Vondeling Petit Rouge

100% Merlot

Vibrant, fruit filled aroma of sleek cherries, subtle raspberry and soft, black pepper. The nose carries through beautifully to the palate and is nicely supported by refined tannins with a smooth finish.

Pairs with

Pork chops, hard cheese or Chicken dishes.

KWV Shiraz

Fruit sweetness with aromas of blackcurrant, plums and raspberries with dried herbs. Undertones of cinnamon and cloves with a juicy palate. Integrated tannins and a long finish.

Pairs With

Beef or lamb dishes

KWV Pinotage

Aromas of red cherries, plums and fruit cake. Sweet, juicy tannins with hints of chocolate and pomegranate. Soft and beguiling.
