Aaldering Vineyards & Wines. Tantalize your taste buds.
Pale straw hue with a slight green tint.
White asparagus, green pepper and elegant floral notes on the nose with a hint of passion fruit. Flint and minerality ads poise and character. The medium bodied palate follows through with more green pepper and grapefruit that is balanced out with a restrained acidity.
Almost crystal clear with a slight blush which separates this wine from the rest of the pack. Prominent strawberry and candy floss aromas are supported by a medley of green apple, pear and banana notes. The sweet red berry flavours are balanced by delicate tart cherry flavours and hints of pink marshmallow and stone fruit.
Pale golden straw. Lemon zest and peach blossoms are supported by hazelnut and buttered toast underpinned by a rich minerality. Full bodied and buttery in character, the opulent mouthfeel is underscored by grippy tannins and an acidity that adds length and liveliness to the finish.
Estate Lady M
Medium purple in colour. Juicy plumb and dark fruit aromas are backed by red berries, mocha, and dark chocolate. Hints of forest floor and savoury mushroom aromas add depth to the enticing nose. Full bodied in nature, with plush, velvety tannins that are linear and lengthy support the dark fruit flavours that are backed with a lively acidity that adds length on the end of the palate. A beautiful example of the versatility of the cultivar that is unadulterated by any wood contact nor maturation in wooden barrels.
Deep purple in colour. Juicy plumb and dark fruit aromas are backed by red berries, mocha, and dark chocolate. Hints of forest floor and savoury mushroom aromas add depth to the enticing nose. Full bodied in nature, with voluptuous, velvety tannins that are linear and lengthy support the dark fruit flavours that are backed with a lively acidity that adds length on the end of the palate.
Deep red in colour with a purple rim. Savoury overtones interspersed with dark fruit, leather, black pepper and notes of clove and cinnamon leap from the glass. The oak lends vanilla, mocha, and dark chocolate notes supporting the fruit and spicey overtones. Plums, dark chocolate and a medley of spices follows through on the full bodied palate which is backed with plush tannins that add structure, length and finesse to the finish.
Salmon pink with an orange tint. Strawberry and raspberry aromas are complimented by candy floss and red cherry notes. The nose follows through and matches the creamy pallet whilst lingering delightfully in the mouth thanks to natural acidity and core of the wine.
Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot
Deep red in colour with a garnet rim. A melange of blackcurrant, mulberries and raspberries leads on the nose and is backed by lead pencil shavings, cigar box notes, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, and warm spices. A full bodied palate with tight, linear tannins and a well-balanced acidity lends itself to the rich berry fruit. The Merlot adds beautiful depth to the mid palate whilst the Cabernet Sauvignon rounds off this complex marriage of the two Nobel cultivars.
Noble Late Harvest
Intense golden hue. Beautiful Botrytis notes with honeycomb and apricots on the nose. Succulent flavours of dried pears and green figs together with wonderful sucrosity and an elegant, lingering palate.

A beautiful reflection of theversatility of Pinotage in the cellar. Salmon pink in colour, which shows beautifully in the flint glass bottle (NEW). Sweet strawberry, raspberry, and candyfloss notes follow through on the pallet. The upfront fruit is supported by a balanced acidity and good mouthfeel thanks to extra lees contact in the cellar.
