For women, by women.  Our selection of wines by women winemakers.

Creation Viognier: A promising pale gold, clear and shiny in the glass. Abundantly fruity and forthcoming yet refined on the nose with fragrant white peach aromas mingling with a rich, creamy character. These follow well onto the palate and combine seamlessly with crisp minerality and bouncy, well-integrated natural acidity.

Creation Syrah Grenache: Dark purple in colour, almost black, with flashes of deep crimson. Alluring aromas of ripe black olive beckon from the glass, elegantly complemented by whiffs of pepper. A well-endowed, full-bodied Rhone-style blend rewarding with intense flavours of ripe plum, black pepper and the smokiness characteristic of Syrah. Supple, ripe tannins and well-integrated, natural acidity contribute to the appeal.

Elgin Vintners Belle Amie Merlot Blanc de Noir Rosé: Belle Amie, my beautiful friend, is an elegant wine filled with poise and finesse. Lovely red fruits dancing on your palate with a sweet ripe fruit finish. Refreshing and alluring! Attractive pale salmon pink, elegant with lots of finesse. Fresh strawberries, pomegranate and summer red cherries on the nose with sweet fruits balanced with natural acidity with a long finish.

Elgin Vintners Syrah: At the winery, the grapes were only destalked but not crushed. The whole berry fermentation took place in stainless steel tank. Punch downs, twice daily, were done during the first 3 days of fermentation, thereafter, pump-overs only once per day. Delestagé was done twice during fermentation. The second stage of the winemaking process, malolactic conversion, was completed after the wine was put to barrel. Maturated in 225L French oak barrels for 18 months.

Kloof Street Chenin Blanc: Fresh and accessible, the Kloof Street Chenin Blanc from Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines shows a beautifully balanced profile, layered with mineral and tropical fruit characters. The nose is characterised by wet granite and alluring sun-ripened pear aromas that are met with vibrant acidity on a rounded palate. Intriguing pithy characters develop on the mid-palate, adding interest to the wine’s complex profile. The Kloof Street Chenin Blanc concludes its elegant performance on the palate with a fresh, mineral-toned finish.

Diemersdal Merlot: The nose seduces with beautiful ripe blackberry and dried fruit aromas along with spicy undertones. This wine is well structured with elegance and mouth-filling fruit flavours. Hints of cedar wood, mint and spice flavours follow through on the palate. This is a rich wine that is ready to be enjoyed now but will last for years to come.
