Cape Ruby NV
Warmth and Pleasure
Fermented in traditional open fermenters, fortified with grape spirits and then matured for one year in French oak barrels, the wine is as densely delicious as fruitcake, complete with citrus peel and baking spice, while the sweetest plums and ripest mulberries add plenty of fresh fruit appeal too.
Lady Alice Methode Cap Classique
The life and soul of the party.
Ben Prins Cape Vintage
Barefoot Ben. The legend lives on.
On the nose, floral notes of violets and roses entice along with Christmas spice and plum pudding. Each sip is deeply rich, with flavours ranging from Kirsch-macerated black cherries to dark chocolate-enrobed hazelnuts.
George Paul Canitz Pinot Noir
Heady combination of liquorice, aniseed, black and red berries on the nose, all underpinned by hints of truffle, exotic mushrooms and spice. Smooth, velvety entry opens into an elegant mouthful of fruits - preserved raspberries and cherries. A fresh lively acidity provides balance to the supply and juicy tannins and the finish is lengthy, changing from fruit through to satisfying truffles and earthiness.
To happy days and glorious nights.
True to tradition, our Amber is made from Hanepoot grapes (Muscat d'Alexandrie) grown on Muratie. The Hanepoot grapes were harvested at 25 ° balling and fortified with grape spirits at the critical time in order to assure us enough residual sugar.

Ansela van de Caab
A triumph of persistence and patience.
The varietals for our Ansela were all hand harvested, sorted, crushed, destalked and fermented in classic open fermenters. Its components were individually hand-harvested, sorted, crushed and destalked prior to fermentation in classic open fermenters and after 16 months they are tasted and selected for blending. the assembled wine are then returned to French oak for a further 6 months to ensure a good mairrage and secure future.

Ronnie Melck Syrah Family Selection
From the very old, low yielding vineyard, planted in 1977, this wine is made in extremely limited amounts, with each bottle individually numbered. Intensely concentrated berries result in a wine displaying the bold refinement reminiscent of a nothern Rhone Syrah. Tannins are firm but fine grained and a very long finish promises great ageing potential.
