BLANC DE NOIR 2013
When stripped of their skins, our Shiraz grapes yield an exquisitely coral tinged wine. Notes reminiscent of a summer berry cup. An uncommonly nuanced wine with the dry, fresh finish of a delicate white and the passion of a red. Good natured enough to blush. Don’t you be shy though. It’s simply too good to hold back.

CHENIN BLANC RESERVE 2012
Our single vineyard limited edition wooded Chenin is made from carefully selected grapes fermented in six French oak barrels, then allowed to mature for eight months. The tastes and aromas have a complexity reminiscent of tropical fruits, woodspice and nuts. Although complex the balance and finish is striking. Inviting you to have another sip and another. And so it goes, we’re proud to say.

Some say our Shiraz is distinctly spicy, with notes of berry, cherry and white pepper. Others suggest whiffs of liquorice and dark chocolate. Foodies recommend it be paired with Mexican or full-flavoured foods and red meats. All I can say, is that it’s best enjoyed from an oversized glass in the company of friends and family, and paired with great conversation.

Our Maison Viognier is a true labour of love.

It’s a symbol of his attention to detail and the uniqueness of this special, limited edition wine.

CAPE RUBY 2012
Our Cape Ruby is beautifully balanced. Its dark colour contrasts a sweet nose. Woody spice is matched with the taste of fruitcake and Shiraz grapes have been fortified with a brandy blend. Traditionally, the delicious result should be passed only to the left at formal dinners. But, at Maison, we pass it to whoever feels like another glass.

CHENIN BLANC 2012
In the trade, our Chenin Blanc is referred to as ‘single vineyard’. For us, this means that we planted, grew and nurtured the grapes that went into our wine. The result is very personal. A light, bright colour that reminds us of early morning on Maison. A tropical citrus nose that conjures up summer days. The rich taste, a memory of long, relaxed lunches with family and friends.

STRAW WINE 2011
Similar in taste to French sauterne wine, our dessert wine got its name on account of how it’s made, the old fashioned way. We pick our chenin grapes in the late summer then lay them down in the open air on straw, beneath the vines. We turn them and turn them until they’re super-sweet and ripe. Then we press them. The result is a dessert wine with delicious hints of honey, raisins and candy. While Maison Straw Wine is unarguably good as a dessert wine, our tasting manager Alice Mfundisi insists its joy doesn’t end there. Since it’s less syrupy and not quite as sweet as most dessert wines, it also makes a great aperitif, with foeie gras or blue cheese.
