Guinea Fowl White 2021

The Saxenburg Guinea Fowl Chenin Blanc 2021 has beautiful aromas of peach, pear and melon that can be found on the nose. Following through to a palate that is wonderfully complex and textured. An almost orange rind pithiness adds interest and is beautifully offset by a crisp acidity.

Paired with Beef Droëwors.

_______

Saxenburg Sauvignon Blanc 2021

The Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021 has an inviting nose with aromas of pear, papaya, gooseberries, and kiwi fruit that lead to a palate with beautiful concentration and texture. The natural acidity lends an incredible sense of minerality and purity to the wine.

Paired with Beef Biltong.

_______

Guinea Fowl Red 2017

The Saxenburg Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 has typical mulberry, cassis and blackberry aromas, with hints of cigar box. The wine is well balanced with layers of red fruit present and has a nice fresh and creamy finish to it. It has a good structured mid-palate with notes of mocha present on the aftertaste.

Paired with Salami.

_______

Saxenburg Private Collection Syrah 2017

The Saxenburg Private Collection Syrah 2017 has a beautiful nose of black cherries, red berries, and a hint of pepper and spice. The palate is seamless – the tannin dense, but finely grained. Hints of oak are beautifully integrated and only add to the incredible complexity. A note of crushed granite and floral elements brings freshness to the palate that finishes with sweet spice.

Paired with Game.

Saxenburg Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011

This Saxenburg Private Collection Sauvignon Blanc – Semillon Blend 2011 shows some elegant light wood citrus and lanolin on the flavour. The taste is fruity, full, long and clean and some youth on the aftertaste.

Paired with Lemon Meringue Truffle.

_______

Saxenburg Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

The Saxenburg Private Collection Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 vintage was in many respects superior to the much famed 2015 vintage and this wine is a testament to that. As is typical with Cabernet Sauvignons from the Polkadraai Hills ward, this wine has an incredible freshness and elegance to it, even though the tannins are still young and firm. Beautiful aromas of tobacco leaves, plums and blackcurrant lead to a palate that is nicely weighted and finely grained.

Paired with Orange Creme Truffle.

_______

Hints of oak are beautifully integrated and only adds to the incredible complexity. A note of crushed granite and floral elements brings freshness to the palate that finishes with sweet spice.
