We are passionate about our wines and once you try them, we think you will see why! The wines in our WOW! Collection are just that. They have WOW’ed us; and now we want to share that with you, fellow vinophiles! To some it is just an alcoholic drink, or simply represents a drink that has brought people together for centuries. To us, South African wines are our passion and we are quite obsessive about it. We don’t keep normal hours and we don’t do normal wine talk. Putting together the WOW! Collection each month is such a fabulous experience. We literally take the shopping trolley and go ‘shopping’ for you. It is like sending a kid into a candy store.
This month Spioenkop Wines from the Elgin Valley steals all the limelight. This month’s collection consists of 10 of their wines.
The vision of winemaker Koen Roose is to produce elegant wines that are sexy and pure but at the same time unique, a little wild even. Squeaky clean is not for him. Personality is important and at Spioenkop, whether it’s to do with his atypical vineyard plantings or the combination of Old and New World in his boutique wine cellar, technology and laboratory analyses will only be used to assist the winemaker and never to detract from the importance of human involvement.
If you prefer a wine with a mineral quality made in a simple, elegant way you should go for our Spioenkop range. All “Spioenkop” Wines are made from grapes coming 100% from the Elgin Valley.
The “1900” wines are our “alternative” label that has a fuller, rich and more tropical style than the “Spioenkop” Wines but still an elegant option.
