Jacques Mouton 'Madeleine' Chardonnay, Franschhoek 2021

2022 - 2024

The Society's Exhibition Pinotage, Stellenbosch 2020

Pinotage is South Africa’s signature grape and arguably nobody does it better than Kanonkop, so we’re delighted to work with them on this succulent, plummy and spicy example. A versatile bottle for red meats and roasted vegetable dishes, its fruit sweetness will complement spicier dishes too.

South Africa £12.50 per bottle
2022 - 2029

‘Dirt Track' Cinsault by Duncan Savage, Swartland 2022

A juicy, lighter style of red-fruited cinsault that works a treat when served cool, but is capable of standing up to all manner of foods. Extremely versatile with an agreeable lightness of touch, it will absorb big flavours without bludgeoning lighter bites. It's a wine that, for our new South Africa buyer Matthew Horsley, offers a glimpse of the country's bright future.

South Africa £9.50 per bottle
2023 - 2024

Piekenierskloof Wine Co. Lo & Behold Grenache-Carignan, Piekenierskloof 2022

Majority sweet, silky South African grenache with 20% darker carignan fruit offering touches of smoke, chocolate and spice, finishing smooth on the palate.

South Africa
2023 - 2025

Du Toitskloof Shiraz, Western Cape 2020

A friendly and accessible South African shiraz in the Côtes-du-Rhône style, with the warmth of 80% Swartland fruit and smooth finish.

South Africa
2022 - 2025

Thelema Mountain Red, Western Cape 2020

Thelema’s ‘house’ red is a blend of shiraz, grenache and petit verdot, all from their own vineyards, the majority on the Sutherland farm in Elgin, South Africa. No new oak, just deliciously juicy fruit.

South Africa
2023 - 2025

Simonsig Rosé Chenin Blanc Pinotage, Western Cape 2023

This wine blends the Cape’s two signature grapes (64% chenin, 36% pinotage) to make a charming, easy-drinking pink that will slip down effortlessly.

Kanonkop Kadette Cape Blend, Stellenbosch 2019

Pinotage leads in this classic Cape Blend, the balance Bordeaux varieties merlot, cabernet sauvignon and a splash of cabernet franc. Moderate oak doesn't add flavours or aromas from the wood but its influence adds to the natural sweetness and spice of the fruit.

South Africa
2020 - 2024

Quando Sauvignon Blanc, Robertson 2023

Quando is a winery in the southern part of the Robertson Wine Valley owned by the Bruwer family. The vineyards were picked in three successive tries this year to deliver the crisp, bright, nettle and lime fruit we have enjoyed over many vintages. Try it with mackerel pâté.

South Africa £9.75 per bottle
2023 - 2024

The Society's South African Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch 2023

Now sporting new Society livery, which alludes to the sustainable farming practices long employed by the Grier family at Villiera, namely pest-eating geese in the vineyards. Old bush-vines - some over 30 years old - provide a richer component to which an earlier-picked proportion is added to lift its bright stone-fruit flavour. It's worth decanting for 20 minutes or so to let it's aromas unfurl.

South Africa £8.50 per bottle
