These compelling yet delicate and savoury South African wines are fashioned from hearty raw materials.
2016 Soul Growers El Mejor
This deliciously carnal creature boasts incredible intensity and fabulous, ululating tannins.
2017 Blanc Fumé de Pouilly
The cosmic balance and inescapable magic of this sauvignon blanc made it a perfect 20/20 in my tasting notes, says Matthew Jukes.
I cannot think of a young Beaujolais I have enjoyed more than this, says Matthew Jukes.
2016 Mt Difficulty This is one of the finest wines made in New Zealand and I cannot recommend it highly enough, says Matthew Jukes.

2015 CVNE Imperial Reserva
This mellow and complex red is perfect for a summer barbecue – or an autumnal game dish, a wintry beef stew, or a succulent spring lamb.
2018 Te Whare Ra
This staggeringly delicious New Zealand white is insanely well-made with bitingly fresh fruit and laser-driven accuracy on the palate.
Made by one of the most sought-after wineries in Australia, this is a succulent, sensual shiraz, says Matthew Jukes.
