A pair of beauties from the Cape

2018 Kottabos, Grenache/Syrah, Boschkloof, South Africa

The 2018 Kottabos is not a typical Cape red in that it is leaner, more fragrant and kindlier on the palate, says Matthew Jukes.

What I like so much about this relative newcomer is that the wines from the brand are perfectly ready to drink from the off, says Matthew Jukes.

2015 Mercurey
This delicious Mercurey captures the splendour of the famous 2015 Burgundy vintage, with layers of pinot noir fruit and lustiness.

These three Portuguese wines are sheer heaven

This series of Niepoort wines left Matthew Jukes reeling with delight.

A winemaker with a magician’s touch
