Scarce New Releases

We have continual requests for certain wines which are produced in small quantities. Some of the wines I am referring to include such names such as, “Alheit, Crystallum, David & Nadia, Porseleinberg, Sadie Family, etc..” Please understand that we do give preference to those clients who support us throughout the year and also take other wines apart from those mentioned above.

Please contact us on +27 21 876 3775 or if you have any queries


Two Chateauneuf du Pape`s of serious note have arrived, namely, Domaine de Cristia and Chapelle St.Theodoric. Both are managed by Baptiste Grangeon and both focus on the Grenache grape, grown in clay/sandy terroir with the St.Theodoric`s premium cuvees coming almost exclusively from light, sandy soils similar to Chateau Rayas ,which happens to be their neighbour.

The average age of the vines are 50 years with the St.Theodoric`s Grenache between 80 and 100 years-old. These are concentrated wines, showing finesse and an almost Burgundian elegance. Quantities are small (eg. Only 250 cases of Dm. de Cristia Vieille Vigne Chateauneuf produced).

This is Southern-Rhone at it`s best! Grenache at its best!

Paul Sauer, Kanonkop, Crystallum, Alheit, Sadie Family, Rall and more …

Well, we never had a chance to unpack the Paul Sauer 2017 as it walked out quicker than what we could have imagined. (We have small quantities left but are trying to secure a little more) Yet still available is the 2015 Kanonkop Cabernet Sauvignon. Plush, full and flavourful it glides down very easily but this 5 year-old is still very much in its primary stage. But just wait a few years and the complex aromas and flavours will start developing. A seriously good buy at R450.

We will be receiving new releases of Crystallum, Alheit, Sadie Family, Rall and more once we are told we may start drinking again. Please send me your wish-lists but I have to be fair and make sure that the restaurants which support us are allocated their share and that our long-standing customers get the same. This takes time to sort out but I will do my best to fulfil your request.

NB. Please note that we cannot replace faulty wines which are not currently available on the market or which are not commercially available in SA. / View all specials
