House Wines

Angels Tears Sauvignon Blanc

Crisp yet generous with layers of tropical fruit, floral notes and hints of green pepper, this is a refreshingly dry Sauvignon Blanc. It is well-balanced with delicate acidity making it eminently drinkable all summer long.

Angels Tears Moscato Natural Sweet

This darling of the Angels Tears range is deliciously fruity with succulent stone fruit, litchi and citrus, enlivened by hints of floral and spicy Muscat notes

Angels Tears Rose

This is a lovely crisp, dry Rosé with upfront, fresh raspberries, strawberries, peaches and cherry flavours with notes of turkish delight and blossoms. This is a well balanced, easy drinking wine with a delightful fruity profile.

Angels Tears Merlot Cabernet Sauvigon

This fruity red is a blend of predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Shiraz for good measure, all harvested from Grande Provence vineyards in Franschhoek. The Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon is an easy drinking red blend with upfront red berry flavours, plums and spicyness on the nose and palate. This medium bodied wine has soft, smooth tannins, perfect
for everyday enjoyment

Angels Tears Le Chocolat Pinotage

This is a smooth, medium bodied red wine with appealing ripe plums, blackberry and licorice, enlivened by notes of coffee and chocolate on the nose, and supported by a well-balanced oak and tannin structure. The award winning 2018 vintage is a smooth and medium bodied Pinotage with appealingly ripe fruitiness and hints of chocolate.

Grande Provence Sauvignon Blanc

Crafted in a vibrant, fruit driven style, Grande Provence Sauvignon Blanc 2018 captures the full tropical fruit spectrum with hints of cut grass on the nose so typical of this variety. This medium-bodied wine shows an abundance of gooseberries, fig and guava. The palate is concentrated with a zesty acidity and long lingering finish.

Grande Provence Chenin Blanc

This unwooded, crisp white wine shows passionfruit, guava and apricot on the nose. The palate displays concentrated layers of white peach, apple and pear, balanced with a fresh acidity and textural finish.

Grande Provence Chardonnay

Our lightly wooded 2018 vintage is an elegant, full-bodied wine with outstanding fruit and wood integration. Experience citrus, almonds and creamy notes with nuances of vanilla. The wine has focused acidity on the palate with an elegant fruit driven, and slight mineral lingering finish supported by the oak.

Grande Provence Merlot

The 2018 harvest yielded significantly smaller berries with more concentrated flavours which inspired us to produce our very first Merlot. The Grande Provence Merlot started out as a component for our The Grande Provence Red blend, and it still is, but it also evolved into a standalone wine due to its fruit purity, its elegance and complexity. The vineyard is situated in the Helderberg region that gets a lovely cooling sea breeze which results in smaller berry formation with a lot of concentration. It allows us to extract and form a very elegant tannin structure.

This Merlot front notes of vibrant dark cherries and raspberries with hints of wild herbs, tomato leaf and dark chocolate enlivened by touches of cinnamon, cloves, orange peel and earthy tones. The palate is supported by a supple, smooth tannin structure.

Grande Provence Cabernet Sauvignon

This fruity red is a blend of predominantly Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon with splashes of Shiraz for good measure, all harvested from Grande Provence vineyards in Franschhoek. The Merlot Cabernet Sauvignon is an easy drinking red blend with upfront red berry flavours, plums and spiciness on the nose and palate.  This medium bodied wine has soft, smooth tannins, perfect for everyday enjoyment.

Grande Provence Shiraz

This medium-bodied red wine has ripe blackberry, blackcurrant, dark cherries and plum, with hints of toffy, vanilla, liquorice, mulled spice and pencil shavings, flavours followed by delicate white pepper nuances on the nose and palate.

The Grande Provence White

An elegant blend of Chenin Blanc and Viognier, pressed and aged in French oak barrels for 24 months. The result is a full bodied rich wine with bold flavour and structure and intense flavours of peach, melon and quince. The wine is rich, full-bodied with upfront layers of fruit and well-integrated oak.

The Grande Provence Red

This wine is a perfectly balanced, full-bodied and multi-dimensional blend with a beautiful deep garnet hue. It exhibits a powerful and complex aroma with notes of cigar box, cherry tobacco and cedar, overlaid with cassis, roasted strawberries, bright red cherries and raspberries. The wine has a smooth, supple entry with seamless integration of oak. The flavours on the palate echo those found on the nose and are cradled by pliable, polished tannins that linger like a first kiss.  This is a classy and perfectly balanced example of a modern take on Bordeaux.

The Grande Provence The Amphora

There is something to be said about following in the footsteps of ancient Greek and Roman winemakers who embraced this ‘technology’ thousands of years ago, using clay hewn out of the earth to cradle and nurture a living liquid.  The journey of The Grande Provence Amphora wine began when the winemaker decided to import two 400L clay amphorae from Manetti Gusmano and Figli from Florence, Italy, with seven generations of experience in crafting their superb vessels.  A small block of Chenin Blanc (33 years old) in Franschhoek was selected and only the very best yellow, sun exposed bunches were picked to maximise the health, flavour and aromatic expression of the wine.
