The Huges Family Wines
There has been a lot of talk about West Coast and Swartland wines in the press of late – and for good reason! Lots of great wines and great wine making techniques are coming out of the region. The Hughes Family Wines, situated just outside Malmesbury, was a real "find" for us. As a member of the Swartland Independent Producers (SIP), their organic approach to viticulture supports a sustainable environment, ensuring that the highest quality wines are produced; giving a true sense of Swartland character, but more importantly wines that are balanced perfectly by nature itself and literally burst with flavour. The vines receive no irrigation here, relying solely on winter rains and natural moisture during the summer.
Nativo Red 2011
This distinctive Swartland red blend is naturally made and barrel aged with subtle aromas of fruit and spice. The grapes are from the Hughes Family farm and are organically grown. Read More
Meaning “Place of Peace”, Amani is a tiny boutique producer owned by the Meyers family of horseracing fame. The elegant range of Amani wines has proved to be a show-stopping, award-winning line-up. Much of the wine produced is exported to fine restaurants in the United States, and they are also a permanent listing on the Blue Train. Terrior and talent have been kind to the Amani story. The vineyards are situated in a sought-after area of Stellenbosch with De Toren and Saxenburg both being close neighbours. Carmen Stevens, the wine-maker, has become a “rock star” since beginning to produce wines at Amani, even receiving investor-funding for one of the UK’s largest mail-order wine companies, “Naked Wines”. The Tasting Room is literally awash with Gold and Double-Gold Awards.
The Amani Kimili 2010 is a fusion of Chardonnay and Viognier grapes grown on Amani Vineyards. This is a superb blend for lovers of creative white blends, chardonnay lovers and those who enjoy the exotic flavours of viognier. This is elegant and complex wine, as you would expect from the masters at Amani.
