John X Meriman, Rustenberg Estate, Stellenbosch

Founded in 1682, this historic estate has been owned by the Barlow family since 1941. Experimentative winemaker Adi Badenhorst has been the catalyst for innovations such as aerial x-raying of vines to assess grape ripeness. Lavish production values for this Merlot-Cabernet blend (named after an eminent ex-Rustenberg owner) - hand harvesting, ageing in French oak -have resulted in a silky-textured style with rich flavours of cassis, plums, vanilla and spice. Roast beef wine.

Viognier, Wide River Wine Cellars, Robertson, South Africa
£7.49

The great diversity of terroir of the Robertson Valley is a major contributing factor to the quality and character of the wines made here, from the rich soils near the river, to the shale and sandstone on the lower slopes of the Langeberg Mountains to the gravelly soils higher up. The Robertson Valley is around 100 miles from Cape Town, between these foothills to the lower reaches of the Breede River. The area is perfect for grape growing with unlimited sunshine and cooling sea breezes. Forty-three growers, many of them fourth generation, supply the modern winery with grapes from a mighty total of 2000 hectares. This has the tell-tale mouthfeel and viscous texture of Viognier, with honeyed apricot flavours and limes on the palate.

Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonnay, Stellenbosch

Glenelly Estate Reserve Chardonnay, Stellenbosch
£17.49

Glenelly Estate, purchased in 2003 by Madame May de Lencquesaing following her sale of famous Bordeaux Chateau,Pichon-Longueville Comtesse de Lalande can be found on the southern slopes of the Simonsberg Mountain in Idas Valley, Stellenbosch. Madame May, at over 80-years of age, decided that rather than easing into her retirement she would add to her 30 years of experience in the wine business. She believed in the soil, the micro-climate and the potential for quality wines in the 128 hectare property. Winemaker, Luke O'Cuinneagain, has s suitably Francophile approach to winemaking which was no doubt nurtured whilst working several vintages at high profile estates in Bordeaux and Alsace. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and the juice transferred to new 500 litre barrels after settling. Following 7 months on its lees the Grand Vin Chardonnay sees 10 months in barrel. It is well proportioned with great poise and lift.
