Simonsig Chenin Blanc
Simonsig Chenin Blanc was the first wine released by founder Frans Malan in 1968. This versatile variety appeals with a bright straw color and a distinctive presence of passion fruit, watermelon and guava. With a lively acidity it pronounces the fruit and coats the palate with an abundance of kiwi fruit and tropical nuances.

Gemtree Moonstone Savagnin
Biodynamic with the emphasis on ‘dynamic’. The lifted citrus and apple blossom aromas flow from nose to palate. Delicate, mouth-watering acidity and mid-palate texture make this an intelligent alternative to that other ‘Savvy’. Clear and bright with a light green hue Lime and lemon zest dominate the aroma with a hint of fragrant white flowers. Very fresh and zesty. The fresh, lively and zesty characteristics come through from the nose to the palate. This vintage is clean and light weight with good natural acid and the distinct flavor of lime. This is a fantastic easy drinking white perfect for enjoying on a lazy afternoon!

Peter Yealands Pinot Noir
The greenest winery in the world! Offers red cherry aromas with a hint of savory spice. The juicy ripe fruit flavors lead into a supple, soft tannin finish. Ripe and fruity, with light tannins delivering balance and fresh flavors that flow through onto the palate, making this a crowd pleaser. You will be hard pressed to find better value for money anywhere.

Gemtree Cinnabar GSM
Made with 40% Grenache, 33% Shiraz and 27% Mourvedre, this wine has the hallmark smoothness and easy drinkability that our GSM is known for. A delicious, mouth-filling wine with sweet and generous raspberry flavors, nuances of creamy oak and velvety tannins. Classic Southern Rhone – rich, earthy and organic with notes of luscious red cherries. A delicious mouth-filling wine with abundant fruit sweetness. Young, bright and lively with good structure, this wine is a fantastic expression of the Southern Rhone style.
