South Africa

Small but perfectly formed is how we would characterise our South African range, although we are very excited about our new additions.

The iconic Iona wines, hailing from South Africa's coolest vineyards, were a great addition in 2014: plaudits- including their first five star rating from Platter- continue to be heaped upon them.

Not to be out done Bruwer Raat's new venture B Vintners, with his cousin Gavin Bruwer, is shaping up to be the most exciting set of debut releases seen in years. Neal Martin rhapsodises " Bruwer Raats may well be the most exciting and forward-thinking winemaker in Stellenbosch at the moment. No...make that IS the most exciting and forward-thinking winemaker. At times I wonder whether he should be cloned and grafted onto other Stellenbosch winemakers if only to prevent them from making soupy, over-ripe, alcoholic wines that compound the region's image problem." Who are we to disagree?

Driven by a desire to make individual, superb quality wines with  exceptional character The Drift wines are assiduously crafted by winemaker Bruce Jack using only the grapes grown on the farm. The Drift specializes in four wines - a single vineyard Rosé, a single vineyard Pinot Noir, a single vineyard Barbera and a blended red wine from various varieties and vineyard sites on the farm.
