Amanda Mthembu, Sommelier from Tops @Lifestyle introduces the Wine of the Week

Wolf & Woman Grenache Rose 2021

WOLF & WOMAN Grenache Rosé is made from grapes yielded by
a single bush-vine vineyard, which grows in the Paardeberg region
in granitic soils.
All of the grapes were picked early in the morning, packed in crates
and allowed to spend 24 hours in a cold room. The following day the
grapes were pressed gently and as whole clusters to obtain the perfect
colour. The free run juice was then drained into a stainless-steel
tank to settle for 24 hours.
No enzymes were used during the settling process. The juice was
racked from the thick lees to 500 L old French oak barrels, after
which the wine fermented naturally in the barrel.
After fermentation, the wine was given a low dose of Sulphur and left
on the lees. The wine spent a total of 6 months in old barrels before
it was blended and bottled.

Valencia and Eamonn introduce Jacques Bruere Blanc de Blancs 2012

The Jacques Bruere Blanc de Blanc MCC has hints of fresh lime and citrus, complimented by a subtle yeastiness. The palate shows great finesse on the finish with crisp, rich and creamy complexity.

Best served as an aperitif or with oysters and the ideal partner to a seafood platter. It is also great with sushi and lime-flavoured Thai dishes.

Valencia and Eamonn introduce Anemos Chenin Blanc 2018

Anemos Chenin Blanc 2018, made by The Old
Road Wine Co received a “Best of Show” award
at the 28th MUNDUS VINI International Wine
Awards in Neustadt, Germany – one of the most
esteemed wine competitions in the world. An
award of this prestige is only awarded to the
best wines in a category.
“Anemos is named after the Greek lexicon for wind,
and with its new award-winning title we were blown
away to be recognised as the best white wine in
South Africa. Hailed from the coastal Winelands of
Stellenbosch and Durbanville, the Anemos exudes
flavours of stone fruits and tropical notes which are
balanced with fresh acidity and a creamy finish to
round off a luxurious taste experience.”
This award follows 10 prestigious awards for Old
Road Wine Co, reaffirming our commitment to
showcasing special pockets of the Capes terroir.
Join us in celebrating another win for South Africa.
There has never been a better time to try the
Anemos Chenin Blanc – a wine that is complex yet
fresh, dry and very stylish.

The Tops @Lifestyle Team Does it again

Valencia and Eamonn introduce us to Hartenberg Cabernet Sauvignon Shiraz 2020.
The bouquet reveals sweet spices like cinnamon and allspice, followed by bright, candied fruit and berries. Eventually these notes make way for deeper wood aromatics. The palate is immersed in the welcoming warmth of berries and spices, ending with subtle yet lingering tannins.
