Ataraxia Under The Gravel Chardonnay 2016

Sourced from a single south-facing vineyard on The Skyfi elds, home to Ataraxia in the
Hemel-en-Aarde located outside the coastal town of Hermanus. Painstaking fruit selection
was followed by a non-interventionist winemaking approach. Fermented in small, tightgrained
French oak barriques, custom ordered from very specifi c Burgundian coopers, this
wine was barrel aged for a further 10 months before being bottled.

B Vintners Inboet Storie Cinsaut 2016

Spontaneous whole bunch fermentation - neutral barrel for 10 months. This is from a 64-year-old vineyard that was planted together with the fi rst commercially planted block of
Pinotage in SA. When they ran out of Pinotage vines, they completed the block by planting
about 300 Cinsaut vines. Hence the name “Inboet Storie”, meaning replacement vines.

Bartho Eksteen Vloekskoot Sauvignon Blanc - Wooded 2016

Whole bunch pressed, no settling. Naturally fermented in older 500 litre French oak and
matured for 11 months on lees. Bottled with minimum interference. Great accompaniment
to crayfi sh bisque, petit poulet and creamed spinach or alikreukel - three ways (ref. the
CWG book “Cellarmasters in the Kitchen”). Previous vintages of this wine have enjoyed
accolades such as 92 - 94 points from three different continents, 5-star Platter’s and have
fetched the highest price for Sauvignon Blanc in the history of the CWG Auction - a true
benchmark.

Beaumont Family Wines Chenin Blanc Demi-Sec 2016

I have only made a demi-sec style of Chenin once before. The Loire has always made
beautiful demi-sec styles. The grapes came from our oldest vines planted in 1974. The natural fermentation didn’t fi nish completely dry in this one barrel so I decided to keep it like this and bottle it as a potential wine for my CWG offering. I love the way it expresses the grapes’ purity with that slight bit of residual that makes the wine more complex and layered.

Beyerskloof CWG Traildust Pinotage 2015

The grapes were hand-picked at optimum ripeness, early in the morning from bush vines in
the Bottelary hills. Fermentation took place in open casks where punch-downs on the cap
were done every two hours. After malolactic fermentation the wine went into new French
oak barrels for 21 months. I selected the best barrel of Pinotage for the CWG.

Bouchard Finlayson Auction Reserve Pinot Noir 2012

Vintage 2012 was unusual in that both quality and quantity presented above average
offerings. In fact, the Pinot noir fruit was outstanding. Our high density plantings also
contributed towards enhancing fl avour profi le and creating greater depth of tannin and
colour. Presented here is a fi rst for CWG label describing Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot noir!

This “two barrel selection” wine was crafted from a small portion of saprolite granite
soil from the Helderberg mountain range. The grapes were from a 35-year-old bush vine
vineyard block. The grapes were reductively crushed and given a 24 hour extended skin

wine was racked into Seguin Moreau Icon Burgundy barrels and spent, with fermentation,
16 months on the lees before bottling.

provide the backbone for the mineral flavours.

Seadragon is a parcel sourced out of a one hectare vineyard that is the heartbeat of the Newton Johnson farm. The bunches were selectively picked by the family, along a narrow contour of broken up claystone in the granitic soil. Made without sulphur in the winemaking, it allows diverse and dynamic micro-organisms from the grape itself to flourish unrestrained in the fermentation. 11 months maturation, with a further six months élevage in larger oak. Unfiltered, it will improve over many years in bottle.

The Drift Farm Comfort Zone 'Whote Bunch Tinta' 2016

We are told it’s difficult to “step out of your comfort zone”. I don’t have that problem because there’s nothing comfortable about making your living as a farmer. There’s nothing comfortable about our poisonous legacy of apartheid and colonialism. There’s nothing comfortable about the spectre of unsustainable land restitution. I am diligently searching for that elusive comfortable life, for hope and stability and incorruptible politicians. But I do find comfort in the fight well fought, and in planting trees whose shade will grace my great-grandchildren. I find comfort in making unusual, joyful wines and drinking my fellow guild members’ wines. Welcome to the zone.

Ripe Cabernet Franc was crushed and destalked, followed by fermentation in a pump-over
container to maintain the integrity of the skins. We were only interested in the drip barrels.
This is the fermenting wine that drips out of the berries under the weight of the skins after
drawing off. It is the heart of the wine. The juice is dark, clear, beautifully balanced and
intense. The fermentation and malolactic fermentation completed in French barrels and
after 18 months of maturation, it was bottled.

Vriesenhof Vineyards Pinot Noir 2015

Various Pinot Noir clones and vineyard sites have been used to make up the blend. Two
methods of vinifi cation are used, namely pump over and pushing through the cap (pigeage).
The wine completes both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation in Burgundy barrels which
has played a key role in producing the integrated style of wine.

Grapes from the Helderberg mountain slopes were hand-picked and put over a sorting
table. Whole berry fermentation with only light extraction methods were used in order to
maintain purity. After fermentation, individual top performing batches were selected as
components for the blend. The blend was then aged for 19 months in 20% new French
oak barrels. No fi ning or filtering took place prior to bottling.
