Apostle Two Gone, Next Apostle in the Wings, 12 Apostles Chenin Blanc 2012 Ready!

Wow, 2012 – gone! We’re sure you also agree. It feels like only yesterday when we were discussing 2012; what wines to produce, where we would source our grapes and the quantities. Crazy, but exciting.

Our second Apostle, Mark 2010, is sold out and, as with the Matthew [2009], Mark will only make its return every 12 years. This was a beautiful Bordeaux-style blend, a truly great wine! So if you still have some stock, enjoy every sip.  We will be making up the blend of the new Apostle, and naming it, in January. We are very happy with the individual components and are excited to follow the development of this, our latest Apostle.

But - we also have good news! The Chenin Blanc 2012 is labelled and ready to impress. We produced only a single 300 litre barrel of this wine, which is ± 335 bottles. This barrel fermented Chenin was left on the lees for 7 months and shows a wonderfully full character – tropical fruit, citrus and hint of honey. This wine is now available – at only R53 per bottle.


And finally, a huge ‘Thank You’ – for your support during 2012 and for believing in our wines. You have made it possible for us to live our passion. May you have a blessed festive season and return safely and fully charged, ready to be ridiculously successful in 2013.

P.S. Let us play Santa. We can deliver to your holiday destination at only R5 per bottle delivery. See our price list
