Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia 2021

Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia reflects the unique terroir of Bolgheri and the Ornellaia Estate. Crafted from the same varieties, with the same meticulous attention to detail in the vineyards and winery as Ornellaia, Le Serre Nuove is one of Italy’s best second wines, proudly showcasing all the hallmarks of the flagship wine yet with a more youthful, approachable flair.

The 2021 Le Serre Nuove dell’Ornellaia packs a huge punch. Masses of dark fruit, bittersweet chocolate, leather, licorice and cloves saturate the palate. I don’t remember a Serre Nuove with this much sheer power and somber intensity, but the balance is there, especially with aeration. Drinking 2025 -2036

Stellenbosch Classics

We have the latest vintages of two absolutely classic Stellenbosch wines.

Glenelly Lady May 2017 Stellenbosch

The Lady May is named after owner, May de Lencquesaing, the former proprietaire of Chateau Pichon Lalande. That is her on the label, sculpted by famous French artist Maxime Real del Sarte. Her dream is to make the best Bordeaux blend outside Bordeaux. This amphitheatre of vineyard land faces south-east, resulting in a slightly cooler and so longer growing season for the Cabernets. The best vintage Dirk van Zyl has made at Glenelly; a rare offer with bottle age, and a wine that is no more expensive than the last time we offered it.

Lady May 2017 is pure as the driven snow, a stunning expression of Cabernet with its delicate, currant skin and fleshy fruits and fine, ripe tannins. The finish is truly uplifting and keeps on giving. It drinks well from now and for at least another decade. 2023 to 2035.

Kanonkop Paul Sauer 2020

This is the 40th vintage of this great wine, named after the patriarch of Kanonkop Estate. It is also released on the 50th anniversary of the estate. Abrie Beeslaar’s final blend is 69% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and 14% Merlot. This is closest to the recent (and magnificent) 2017 and 2019 vintages, showing a little reduction in Merlot and favouring a little more Cabernet Franc, always a sign of good conditions for both Cabernets.
This is another refined Bordeaux blend with complexity of black truffle, herb, mineral and soft spice from some clever management of new French barrels. Pure Cabernet notes are dashed with a hint of salinity. On the long finish this is overlaid with plump, gummy, black fruit flavours that fill the palate to a great crescendo of joy. It’s difficult to resist now but it is built to last for a couple of decades. 2025 to 2041
