The loveliest of lemons freshly picked from the estate and ready for you to take home... 🍋 Please feel free to grab one or two when you visit us this weekend.
Friday at the office 2 (home), celebrating my small wins at the end of the week with a bottle of @lnwines1483 merlot 2017. This week it has been a tough one for me I have been feeling emotionally exhausted but I pushed on and I tried my best not to affect those who were around me. BTW - one of the website our studio @1215ka_studio designed ( UI&UX) went live today. . . . . “Raise your glasses and toast to the future today. #wine #winetasting #southafricanwines #wineindustry #winelifestyle #motivation #stellenbosch #stellenboschwinefestival #stellenboschwines #wineyards #merlot 🍷 #family #winefamily

One of the most fascinating stories fuelling the South African wine revolution is the rise of Cinsaut… or is it Cinsault? This highly drinkable wine varietal has re-emerged in the South African wine industry as both a blending component and single grape varietal, after a history of being a somewhat less revered grape in the winemaking world. We wondered why and spoke to some of the experts who are using the grape more prolifically, and to perhaps more interesting ends than has always been the case… Find out on the Good Wine Shop blog, Behind the Cellar Door, as we chat to Adam @winemason of @raisedbywolves_wines (and winemaker for @mulderboschvineyards ), @lukasvanloggerenberg of his own label @vanloggerenbergwines and winemaker for @carinusfamilyvineyards , and Alex Dale, CEO of @radford_dale winery ... all of whom make a damn fine cinsault! https://goodwineshop.co.za/wine-notes/cinsaut-or-cinsault/ #cinsault #cinsaut #redredwine #redwine #behindthecellardoor #winenotes #southafricanwine #sawine #stellenboschwines #stellenbosch #wineblog #onlinewineshop #goodwineshop #hermitage

Today's forcast 99% chance of wine. Some red would be good. I had a great opportunity to taste @arravineyards wines at @thewineshowza last. And because of the forecast that Shiraz would be good for the soul. Arra Vineyards Shiraz shows rich earthy, wild strawberries, hazelnut, mulberry, watermelon on the palette.Cheers🍷 #winetasting #topswineshow #reddwine #shiraz #Winederful #winemazing #winestagram #wineevent #winederlust #winesnob #thirstythursday #wineblog #wineblogger #winelovers #winelifestyle #winelove #winelove #stellenboschwines #winedrifting #winedrifters
I am loving @winemenusa masterclass series, they’re educational and fun! Last night I attended the Polkadraai masterclass with guests @reenenborman from Boschkloof wines, @nuschkadevos from @reynekewines , @lukasvanloggerenberg from @vanloggerenbergwines and Mick Craven from @cravenwines. The Stellenbosch region is made up of many different sub regions and the Polkadraai is characterised by Granite soils and proximity to the ocean. The combination of these two factors is quite unique in Stellenbosch. The phrase coined last night was “Effortless Intensity”, after tasting these amazing wines I think this should be the tag line for the Polkadraai! #GlobeMuncher . . . . . #Wine #WinesOfSouthAfrica #StellenboschWines #Polkadraai #PolkadraaiWines #Wineporn #WineLover #Winestagram #Masterclass #WineMasterclass #Vin #WineTasting #WineNight #WineMakers #CravenWines #ReynekeWines #BoschkloofWines #VanLoggerenbergWines #Vino #Johannesburg #SouthAfrica
"Wine is a drink that is made from a plant that grows in the ground." Or so reminded us @reveriechenin Jacques de Klerk, one of the talented team of winemakers behind one of our favourite wineries, @radford_dale. He was talking about their Thirst Gamay Noir - which, incidentally, is currently the only one of its kind of varietal in South Africa. "Raw and unrefined, it tastes of the ground. Not a natural wine but as close to hands off you can get," he says. "There is very little added to it, almost zero sulphur." What we love about this wine is that it's one of the more unusual flavours out there to pass your lips. And it's a 10.5% alcohol red, which makes it highly "klappable", as founder Alex Dale described, and pretty unheard of in SA. We love their lighter, refreshing reds SO much that we had to put together a mixed case for you. You can't get it anywhere else and it's the best way to experience the Gamay, along with their deliciously juicy Thirst Cinsault (the varietal flavour of the month, in case you haven't heard) and the South African favourite, Pinotage by their other label, @WineryofGoodHope. "Definitely a Pinotage you can drink a bottle of on your own," says the team at Radford Dale. Hells, invite 5 friends over and drink all 6! (You're sure to impress them with a varietal they've likely never heard of.) The special mixed case includes two bottles of each varietal for R819 and we deliver anywhere in SA. Now that's good wine. #redredwine #redwine #goodwineshop #radforddale #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #coastalwines #westerncape #westerncapewines #sawines #southafricanwines #sauvignonfree #drinklocal #drinksouthafricanwine #pinotage #gamaynoir #cinsault #cinsaut

Repost from @therealgregslist - Being a massive De Toren fan it was appropriate that my brother visited De Toren Private Cellar to witness first-hand where the magic happens!! We were graciously hosted by winemaker Charles Williams once again. I never tire of visiting this estate, each time gaining additional insight into the passion and meticulous craftsmanship - from berry to bottle - of producing these spectacular wines. It is remarkable witnessing peoples’ reaction as they first are exposed to the De Toren ethos especially when they taste the luxurious De Toren Z or De Toren Fusion V for the very 1st time 👌🏻👌🏻!! As always thank you to everybody at the farm working tirelessly in the pursuit of the ultimate wine and for making this another memorable experience for all. #therealgregslist #SAwinelover #detorenprivatecellar #amazingcapewineexperiences #DeTorenFusionV2016 #LeftBank #DeTorenZ2016 #RightBank #DeTorenDelicate #capewinelands #stellenboschwines #Harvestedbyhand #awardwinningwines #greatSAwines #Southafricanwines #ifnotwinenot #winebrothers #bordeauxstylewines #worldclasswines #ExclusiveCraftmanship #Luxurywines #InvestmentWines #winesofinstagram #InstaWines
Nestled atop Upper Blaauwklippen road in Stellenbosch you never feel as though you going to arrive at your destination as you snake your way up toward the mountain. Finally, nestled at the foot of the ‘Guardian Peak’ mountain is Keermont Vineyards a ‘hidden gem’ boutique winery with not only breathtaking views but an immense quality of wines to match. An embodiment of tranquility and seclusion we were graciously hosted by the effervescent owner Mark Wraith and Sales & Marketing Manager Nicole Kilian. Driven around the estate it comprises of tiered trellises of varying vines all purposefully planted in terroir specifically identified to maximize the growth and quality of each varietal. We stopped at their outdoor ‘meeting room’ to gaze into the distance as the morning sun breached the Guardian Peak to warm both us and the vines. With majestic views of Stellenbosch, on a cold, crisp, clear winter’s day, one could see all the way across to False and Table Bay with Table Mountain and Lions Head recognizable on the horizon. Keermont pride themselves on using traditional wine making techniques in a modern setting. All Keermont wines are Estate wines, meticulously crafted, hand labeled and packaged. Natural gravity flow and manual bottling (using an old school 6 bottle filler) are 2 things that really stood out. After the cellar we went upstairs to the cosy yet modern tasting room. Aptly described...’feels like a game lodge but on a wine farm’...it’s an ideal place to sample the final product of this intricate wine journey from soil to glass. Definite standouts were: - Keermont Riverside Chenin Blanc ‘17 (Single Vineyard (S.V.)) - Keermont Topside Syrah ‘15 (S.V.) - Keermont Pondokrug Cab Franc ‘15 (Personal favorite!! Also S.V.) - Keermont Estate Reserve ‘13 - Keermont Natural Spring Water N.V. (😂 for Mark) Thank you for a truly fantastic experience! #therealgregslist #amazingcapewineexperiences #stellenboschwines #keermontvineyards #secludedtastingroom #uniquewinetastings #greatSAwines #harvestedbyhand #boutiquewineestate #ifnotwinenot #littlesliceofheaven #tranquility #majesticviews #upperblaauwklippen #emergingwinery #hiddengemwineestates

Louisvale started producing wine shortly after it was acquired in 1988 by the previous two owners. Over the next decade, Louisvale built up a reputation for high quality wines and established a strong presence both locally and internationally. #LVWineSA #louisvalewines #winesofsouthafrica #stellenbosch #stellenboschwines #stellenboschwineroute #devonvalley #sawine #sawines #southafricanwines #sawinelover #wineoclock #winedrinkers #southafrica #westerncape #southafricaza #capetown
