Want to know more about the wines you’ll (hopefully!) be sharing with your loved one?

Excelsior Viognier 2018

This is a varietal from the Rhone Valley in France. These grapes flourish in the sun and need to be fully ripe for their exotic flavours to be fully expressed. In this wine you’ll find subtle flavours of lemon, and peaches linger on a complex palate. Full-bodied elegance makes this a wine of substance.

Hoopenburg Integer MCC Brut

A classic bubbly with a contemporary bite. Made in the traditional method used to make champagne, this 100% chardonnay MCC will complement a wide range of foods. Expect a lively, balanced palate of Granny Smith apples, biscuit crumbs and white peaches.

Serve at: 7 to 9 degrees Celsius

Pair with: A wide range foods that includes cheese, seafood, salads and pastries

Delaire Cab Franc Rosé

After just four hours of skin contact to acquire its blushing colour, this wine is then made in the same style as sauvignon blanc to maintain its fresh fruit characters of ripe strawberries and cream followed by a crisp, dry finish.

Serve at: 7 to 9 degrees Celsius

Drink by: Within 8 years

Serve with: Fresh goat’s cheese and a crusty loaf, or a juicy steak

Grangehurst the Point Cape blend

A collaboration between Grangehurst Winery and Wade Bales has produced a Cape Blend exclusively for you. It’s a sublime blend of cabernet sauvignon, pinotage and shiraz – this is attributed to the magnificent Cape Point rock formation that forms part of the vista from Grangehurst across the False Bay. Matured in French oak barrels for 18 months, the Grangehurst Point Cape blend has red berries, plums and cigar box aromas; a youthful palate; lovely acidity; and creamy berries on the finish.

Style: Elegant and delicate

Serve at: 16 to 18 degrees Celsius

Drink by: Recommended 5 to 10 years from vintage

Pair with: Lamb kebabs grilled over the coals, an oxtail potjie or traditional waterblommetjie bredie

Cape Point Sauvignon Blanc 2018

The wine shows a complex array of green fig, passion fruit and apple combined with zesty orange and lime. The palate remains fresh and vibrant, with lively traces of Granny Smith apples, fresh pineapple juice and pears.

Style: Fresh, crisp and vibrant

Serve at: 7 to 9 degrees Celsius

Drink by: Enjoy now through to 2021

Pair with: Tomato gazpacho with prawns, Thai noodle salads, gnocchi with basil, goat’s cheese or roasted cherry tomatoes.
