Wine selection

Bubbly  
Cederberg Brut "Strings of dainty pearls in liquid gold". Made in the traditional French method of allowing a second fermentation to take place in the bottle. The extended period on lees, allowed time to add to the creamy complexity of this sparkling wine.  R 210
Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rosé A delightful bright salmon pink colour is embroidered with delicate slow rising bubbles. The enchanting mousse unveils luscious strawberries and fresh red berry flavours with a zesty citrus surprise.  R170

Cederberg Dry Rose The Cederberg Rosé, made of single vineyard Shiraz on sandstone soil, shows elegant aromas of strawberries, watermelon and cotton candy. R110
Warwick First Lady Rose 100% Pinotage still graces the wine – we think we’ve found the perfect recipe! We crush the grapes and leave them on the skins for a few minutes (a few minutes less than we did last year, to create an even lighter colour), then to preserve the delicate floral (jasmine) and fruit (raspberry) aromas, we bottle it as young as possible and send it to you to enjoy in its prime R130
Krone Chardonnay / Pinot Noir Soft and full on the palate and balanced by crisp acidity, this wine has a lingering finish and provides anytime drinking pleasure R120

Lanzerac The Lanzerac Chenin Blanc is packed with fruit with prominent guava, tropical and citrus flavours. The palate is succulent, fresh and lively R120

Neil Ellis Classic ripe peach and tropical fruit on the nose and soft, well-integrated vanilla flavour on the palate R145
Weltevrede Vanilla On the nose you get a combination of fruits like melon, mango, peach, pineapple and passion-fruit with butterscotch, crème brulee and a distinct note of Vanilla R115
Sauvignon Blanc  
Cape Atlantic This is an easy drinking wine made by Cederberg's David Nieuwhoudt. It is dry, with typical zippy acidity and fresh Sauvignon Blanc verve. Best drunk young. R90
Cederberg An aromatic Sauvignon Blanc with grassy notes, white asparagus undertones and strong hints of capsicum, gooseberries and lemon zest. A refreshing, crisp acidity finishes off the initial sensation of creaminess on the mid-palate. R150
La Motte With intense gooseberry, followed by green apple, winter melon and lemon on the nose, this wine is very friendly and approachable. R130
Diemersdal This vibrant, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc presents a brilliant lemon-lime colour. The nose is complex with an array of tropical fruit, ripe figs and gooseberries. R120
Cabernet Sauvignon  
Warwick First Lady The smooth, ripe, round tannins make this wine easy to drink while still retaining a full body. The balanced acid creates a firm finish that is complemented by a lingering aftertaste R135
Weltevrede 1912 A deep purple colour. On the nose you get an intense mixture of berries and pepper. The palate reveals Blue-and Blackberries, pomegranate and white pepper with a long smokey finish. R140
