Wines included

2023 - 2024

Aslina by Ntsiki Biyela Cabernet Sauvignon, Stellenbosch 2020

Ntsiki’s Western Cape blend has thrashed some impressive rivals in a previous Champions tasting and won again in 2023. This poised Stellenbosch cabernet can only add to her trophy cabinet.

South Africa
2022 - 2026

Mama Afrika Chardonnay, Western Cape 2020

New to us, and a wine that buyer Matthew Horsley has selected to show why he's so excited to be taking over as South Africa buyer, this bright, citrusy, creamy-textured Cape white is made from lightly barrel-fermented Franschoek fruit, and is the realisation of owner Mpelo Sikhwatha's dream.

South Africa
2021 - 2024

The Society's Exhibition Chenin Blanc, Western Cape 2021

This reigning Champ from chenin wizard Chris Alheit couldn’t fail with another year in bottle under its belt. ‘Gorgeous’ and ‘super-smart’ from South Africa buyer Jo Locke MW. Made from offcuts from his Alheit Vineyards range, this was part barrel-fermented and matured a little longer on the fine lees in 2021, bringing extra breadth and some toasty richness.

South Africa £14.50 per bottle
2022 - 2025

Kaapzicht Estate Kliprug Old Vine Certified Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch 2022

The Kliprug estate was planted in 1982 and consistently delivers generous, textured fruit supported by a touch of chalky minerality and freshness, here topped with seductive lemon-butter notes.

South Africa
2023 - 2028

The Liberator 'Le Merle Noir' Merlot, Paarl 2020

15% petit verdot adds a little spice and perspective to this rich, chocolatey, velvet-glove merlot. A hedonistic South African wine to indulge in.

South Africa
2023 - 2028

The Society’s South African Pinotage-Syrah, Coastal Region 2023

South Africa’s very own grape pinotage takes the lead in this fresh, fruity Cape Blend of young Stellenbosch syrah with older bush-vine pinotage from Swartland. The grapes were whole-berry fermented and the syrah grapes lightly crushed and gently handled in the cellar to produce a fruit-driven red with soft tannins.

South Africa £9.95 per bottle
