R 185.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

Effervescent elegance in a glass – our beautifully balanced MCC, the winner of multiple trophies and awards through the years, consistently sells out before the anticipated release of the next vintage.

Sometimes, a celebration is just for two – you and the bottle – for all other special occasions, sharing is essential as long as the MCC is ice cold and the company invaluable.

Sauvignon Blanc 2016

R 95.00

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

The Sauvignon Blanc is more tropical and fruit-driven than the Koetshuis. It’s made from grapes grown in a vineyard which benefits from the cooling effect of gentle maritime breezes from the nearby ocean where the cold Benguela current runs northwards up the coast.

Pale straw in colour, with youthful lime green flashes around the edges, you will notice aromas of grapefruit and other tropical fruits like guava...

Rosé 2017

AWARDS  |  TASTING NOTES

This beautifully striking wine, which resembles the ‘eye of the partridge’ in colour, combines coppery pink hues with a deeper reddish blush. Exceptionally floral and perfumed on the nose with enticingly sweet nuances of lemon and lime carried out of the glass by wafts of Turkish delight and candy floss.

The sweet delight on the nose precedes a dry entry that bursts into juicy
strawberry preserve layered with hints of...
