Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc

The Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc has an incredibly inviting and complex nose, showing white-fleshed nectarines, freshly cut passion fruit, ripe pear, and kiwi. The fruit follows through beautifully to the palate, with a hint of orange pith adding interest at the back of the palate.

Paired with Game Droëwors.

Guinea Fowl Chenin Blanc

The Guinea Fowl Chenin has subtle tropical fruit blossoms on the nose with nectarine, Chinese white pear and honeycomb notes and fresh citrus adding to the bouquet. There is a fresh citrus entry to a full mouthfeel and a final honey-like finish on the palate.

Paired with Beef Biltong.

Guinea Fowl Red 

The Saxenburg Guinea Fowl Red has a vibrant ruby to garnet colour, and the nose shows initial dark fruit aromas like blackcurrant, cassis and black cherry, supported by whiffs of vanilla, cinnamon and dark chocolate. The palate is beautifully weighted and juicy, with a dense but finely grained tannin structure.

Paired with Beef Chutney Sticks.

Saxenburg Private Collection Syrah

The Saxenburg Private Collection Syrah has an alluring nose with cherries, ripe blackberries, and a combination of white and black pepper. These follow through to a palate that is wonderfully weighted, with fine-grained tannins that provide just enough grip. A wine that balances weight and power with brightness and elegance.

Paired with Game Biltong.
