Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2020

To those who want to discover more white wines, you can try a Chenin Blanc like the Kaapzicht Chenin Blanc 2020. It is another great French white wine that should not be skipped in your collection.

This wine from Kaapzicht comes straight from Stellenbosch's sun-drenched vineyards. It has tasting notes of ripe quince and pineapple, caressed by the earthy whispers of stone fruit. Sip and savor the delicate dance of sweetness and a zesty crunch on your palate, culminating in a lively finish that echoes the spirited essence of South Africa.

A bottle that's not merely a drink but a journey of flavors, its textured sophistication invites the curious and the connoisseur to indulge in a dry style that promises to revitalize any collection.

Saint Clair Vicar’s Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Saint Clair Vicar’s Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2018

For enthusiasts accustomed to red wines, embracing a classic white like Sauvignon Blanc is an exciting departure. Derived from the same grape as the renowned Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc introduces an herbal and savory profile, offering a refreshing exploration beyond the familiar territory of red varietals.

You can add the Saint Clair Vicar’s Choice Sauvignon Blanc 2018 to your collection. This white wine from New Zealand has an aroma with tropical notes of passionfruit, grapefruit, and blackcurrant, nuanced by the unique brine of sea salt. This Sauvignon Blanc glistens like pale straw, hinting at its crispness. On the palate, it unfolds richly, marrying grapefruit’s tang with lush blackcurrant, amid the herbal vivacity of nettle and capsicum.

Finishing with a pronounced mineral flourish, this Sauvignon Blanc is handpicked to accompany the freshest seafood, promising a wave of unabridged Marlborough excellence.

Gossips Sweet Lips Dolcetto & Syrah

Let’s add a blend of two different wines to our collection in 2024! Gossips combines two popular types: Dolcetto and Syrah.

A dolcetto wine is an Italian wine that is both soft and fruity. It is characterized by flavors of dark berries that give it sweetness and acidity. On the other hand, Syrah is a bolder wine that has intense flavors of pepper, spices, and dark fruits. It is more full-bodied and robust with a velvety texture.

When you combine the two, you get the Gossips Sweet Lips Dolcetto & Syrah. This has tasting notes of fresh strawberries and raspberries. It has a rich palate of cherries and dark berries is balanced with a crisp acidity.

KWV Classic Collection Moscato

KWV Classic Collection Moscato

To those who are starting the wine collection, a Moscato is one of the most beginner-friendly wines to try. It is perfect for those who are still sensitive to alcohol because of its sweet and fruity taste. You can expect notes of orange blossom, peach, pear, and lemon.

From our different options available at Ralph’s, you can try the KWV Classic Collection Moscato. From the Western Cape's fertile valleys, this vivid Moscato opens with an enticing blend of fragrant mulberries and plums, accompanied by a subtle hint of toasted almonds, a sophisticated cigar box, and a hint of cedary oak.

This promises a full-bodied sip with a richness that echoes through the long-lasting finish, all while embracing a well-structured harmony of tannins. With 14% alcohol content, this majestic South African gem is a must-have for any collection.

Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Shiraz 2017

For those looking for bold and full-bodies wines, you can try Shiraz. This is a red wine made from the Syrah grape. Known for its boldness, it offers rich flavors of dark fruits, spices, and sometimes, smoky notes. Its versatility in pairing makes it a favorite for those who appreciate intense and complex flavor profiles.

A good Shiraz option is the Jim Barry The Lodge Hill Shiraz 2017. Cultivated in the Clare Valley's unique terroir, this Shiraz is an exuberant expression of deep reds and magenta hues. Unleashing an aromatic fusion of red and black berries, violet florals, clove spice, and fresh herbs, it promises a sensory delight. The palate revels in a berry burst, caressed by fine tannins, while plum and blackberry flavors persist, tapering into a sweet, spicy denouement.
