Vintages: April 4th 2020
2017 RADFORD DALE VINUM CHENIN BLANC WO STELLENBOSCH
$17.95 | VINTAGES#: 13338 | 750 mL bottle| 93pts Tim Atkin
The core of this wine is a 48-year-old vineyard on the Helderberg. It’s all about fruit, with only 30% of wooded material, subtle skin contact for some grip, bracing acidity and flavours of pear, wet stones and spicy, palate-coating concentration. Drink date: 2019-2025. Score – 93. (Tim Atkin, MW, timatkin.com, South Africa Special Report 2018)
2017 STÉPHANE AVIRON MOULIN-À-VENT VIEILLES VIGNES CRU BEAUJOLAIS
$23.95 | VINTAGES#: 368134 | 750 mL bottle | Cellar Worthy Cru Beaujolais
This highly regarded cru is sourced from older vines, many over 100 years of age. You can expect rich intensity, concentration and depth. This will have the smoky dark berry and refined minerality that the wine is known for, as well as the structure for rare roast beef or charcuterie and cheeses. If you intend to serve it tonight, decant for at least one hour.

2014 CORTONESI LA MANNELLA BRUNELLO DI MONTALCINO DOCG
$63.00 | VINTAGES#: 12405 | 750 mL bottle | 93pts Wine Align – Michael Godel
Cortonesi works through the challenge with a sangiovese in 2014 that finds critical mass and therefore celebrates la vita bella in Brunello. With no reason to choose a Vigna-designate nor a Riserva to produce, the best of the best therefore finds its way into this eponymous family Brunello. It’s equipped with notable vintage fruit, finer acids than many and a tannic structure that is not only correct but highly promising. Lengthiness is one of the best in the vintage. Drink date: 2023-2031. Score – 93. (Michael Godel, winealign.com, March 10, 2019)
