Shiraz Mourvedre Grenache

Shiraz leads the way with layers of fruit and spiciness. Mourvedre brings a pervasive savouriness. Grenache rounds off the union with red berry fruit and refreshing acidity. Kaleidoscope of sensuality melded into firm yet friendly build. Versatile food pairing wine that works particularly well with dishes featuring Mediterranean spices including red pepper, sage, rosemary and olive oil.

Oupa Bull

Pinotage Reserve

A stately expression of this proudly South African variety, unfolds layers of spiced up blackberry, cassis and dark chocolate with cedarwood undertones. Soft, gentle tannins with lingering dark plum flavours seasoned and framed by oak.



Unwooded zippy and fresh
Chablis style. For everyday drinking and light meals. Bright straw with green hues and an intense aroma of herbs and tropical fruit. Elegance and depth, complexity and texture with a distinctive minerality.
