The Connoisseur's Case

Sold out

The absolute gift for those wine lover friends and family of yours, or just a few really nice wines to enjoy over the break. Come on, you've worked hard this year - toast in the new year and reward yourself with these gems. Bubbles to start, two whites, two reds and a sweet one to finish.

This pack contains:

1x Hermann J Wiemer - Cuvee Brut 2011

"Wow, Very nutty on the nose with caramelised white chocolate, shortbread and sourdough crust. As it opens up there is vibrant citrus juice and orange sherbet flavours - especially on the side of the palate. Great acidity, intensity, a very fine mousse. Shortbread, vanilla and oak work lead onto the lengthy finish."

1x Sadie Family 'Skurfberg' Chenin Blanc 2014

"It shows crystalline purity, with bracing pineapple, green fig and melon rind notes and a steely, even chalky finish. It's very linear, very pure and very long."

1x Wolffer Estate 'Perle' Chardonnay 2014

"This is a very complex wine and one of the standouts from the whole Wolffer Estate portfolio. On the nose it is welcoming with aromas of; yellow peaches, clover honey, apricots, shortbread and macadamia nuts. Creamy, nutty with lovely malolactic-fermentation flavours giving a buttery touch to the palate. Incredible texture - silky."

1x Forge Cellars 'Les Allies' Pinot Noir 2014

"Perfect balance of smoky, toasty oak and ripe red fruits. Red plums, wild raspberries and red cherries on the nose - fresh fruits, nothing confected. High acidity with great tension and texture. This is a lot like a top Oregon or German Pinot Noir. Red rose and crushed violets on the palate's finish. Lovely! Shows great ageing potential." 

1x Boekenhoutskloof - Syrah 2012

"Loads of violets, blackcurrant fruit pastilles, white and black pepper with pastrami adding to the complexity. The purity and depth of fruit, firm velvety tannins and refreshing acidity shows the massive aging potential of this vintage. Textured, composed and seamless in style."

1x Domaine Clayou - Coteaux du Layon 2015 (750ml)

"A classic medium-sweet Chenin Blanc from the Loire. It has lively aromas of apricots, green apple juice, peaches and honeycomb on the nose. Luscious on the palate without being too sweet - the acidity helps out too. Perfect with some blue cheese."
