This is the true expression of Veuve Clicquot’s House style. The predominance of Pinot Noir provides
the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend.
Chardonnay adds the elegance and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.

VEUVE CLICQUOT ROSÉ                                                                                                     1100
Pale yellow hue with tiny bubbles. Earthy, nutty aromas of apple cider, lemon drop, brioche, clove

Semi-sweet with 24 g/l sugar, though not disturbing. Exotic and very delicate floral and fruit
salad aromas, with a hint of honey, dried peaches and ripe muscat. All natural sugar with a
bracing fresh finish. Great partner to curries, spiced poultry, blue cheese or nicely chilled on
the terrace.

This vibrant, classically styled Sauvignon Blanc presents with a brilliant lemon-lime colour.
The nose is complex, featuring an array of tropical fruit, figs and gooseberries. These crisp
flavours repeat in the mouth, along with a minerally character, and are followed by a long
fruity finish. The distinctive aromas support a wonderfully balanced palate, offering the purity
of ripe fruit, coupled with a lingering harmonious finish.

MULDERBOSCH “STEEN OP HOUT” CHENIN BLANC                                                            145
Pale yellow in colour with a hint of green. On the nose, tinned pineapples, guavas, litchi,
lemon and lime aromas are abundant. A clean, lively wine with nuances of nutmeg and
cloves. Well-balanced and elegant, but with weight and a powerful follow-through on the
palate. Stylistically off-dry and lightly oaked, this is an excellent food wine.

MEINERT “LA BARRY” SAUVIGNON BLANC                                                                  149
Conceived as a wedding gift for my non-red-wine-drinking wife, for some reason a few fans
assumed the maiden La Barry 2008 was a once-off. With the 2009 we've realised the goal
of using exclusively Elgin grapes. Cool climate floral fruit overshadows light grassy hints, but
don't drink all of it too young for you'll miss out on the mineral and flinty flavours.

TOKARA “WALKER BAY” CHARDONNAY                                                                      245
This Chardonnay displays a brilliant light golden straw hue. Flinty, smoky and mineral aromas
on the nose, with underlying fresh lime zest and a hint of almonds and marzipan. There is a
certain amount of delicacy and restraint on the palate. The flavours are compact and balanced,
entering with smoky and flinty notes, which broaden into lime zest and lemongrass, developing
into flavours of creamy brioche and marzipan, with a long zesty finish.

BLACK ROCK WHITE                                                                                    245
A lively but weighted mouthfeel, driven through by a beam of mineral acidity which combines
naturally with white petals, apricots and bright fruitiness. A blend in the true sense: balanced,
harmonious and multi-faceted. One of only a small family of Cape Chenin-based premium blends.

A full bodied Pinotage with a deep purple colour. The perfumed berry and plum flavours are well
balanced with complex aromas from new French Oak. A wine with a long finish that could last in the
bottle for 10 years and more. A must with venison and game and escpecially red meats.

RUST EN VREDE MERLOT                                                                                   285

The soft, velvety cherry and redcurrant flavours on the nose of Danie de Wet Pinot Noir lingers
on the palate. Smooth tannins and added dimension through careful oak maturation makes
this an elegant wine.

with hints of cinnamon and chocolate. The fruit aromas on the nose complement the same
flavours on the palate with hints of caramel backed by a firm tannin structure.
