|New in stock: 2019 Porseleinberg|
The 2019 Porseleinberg Syrah
It may have ‘only’ received 99/100 this year in the annual Tim Atkins MW SA Wine Report (after last year’s ‘full marks’), but that doesn’t mean that the Porseleinberg Syrah made by Callie Louw isn’t good. I went out to his hilltop cellar to taste with him a few months ago, and it’s beautiful! The 2019 was a smaller harvest, has a slightly lower alcohol and feels a bit lighter on the palate than the 2018, and will definitely reward you in a decade or two. Our supply has almost run out but we have a few bottles left for those who do not yet have – only 1 bottle each, please.
Tasting the Pastor’s Blend!
Saturday | Sunday Weekend tasting: A blend of Cab Sauvignon, Merlot and Cab Franc the Pastor’s Blend from Journey’s End is perfect for your weekend braai. Their tasting note says: “This Old World style red blend displays rich dark red fruit aromas including blackcurrant and ripe cherries. These aromas are also experienced on the palate and are accompanied by sweet tobacco and Christmas cake characters. This wine has a well-integrated tannic structure showing elegance and lengthy finish.” Sounds delicious!

Have you ever heard about a great wine but could never find a bottle for yourself (to share with friends, of course)? Well, the team at Wine & Company do all the hard work for you! We visit wine farms and attend tastings to find, taste, and then stock wine from the smaller Estates and independent winemakers who buy grapes and produce outstanding wine under their own labels – much the same as the French negociants have been doing for centuries. Given that these winemakers make wine in such small quantities, sometimes just a single barrel, their wine will never be found on the shelves of the major retailers, but only in specialist shops like Wine & Company on High Street, Hermanus.
In addition to the great selection of well-known wines and MCC’s, we also stock local craft gin and beer, French Champagne, Belgian Ales as well as whisky and other spirits. Wine & Company (established in 1998 by Bartho Eksteen) has a well-earned reputation for stocking hard-to-find small-batch wines and we strive to continue this great tradition. If you purchase a bottle of wine from us and it is faulty we will gladly replace the bottle and return the faulty wine to the winemaker.
Feel free to contact Wine & Company if you need a particular wine and we will do our best to source it for you. We are also able to ship wine locally and to most countries so do ask about international shipping.
Thank you for your support – stay safe – see you soon!
