Our selection of 10 of our favourite rare & fine wines

34 South Restaurant, Knysna, Wine list

Chateau Naude 'Le Vin de Francois' Pinotage 2018

Francois Naude gave up his pharmacy in Pretoria to make wines in his house in Stellenbosch. After a spell at L'Avenir, he decided to link with six producers of Pinotage from Stellenbosch, buying a single barrel from each, and then blending to create the 'Francois.' Released only by auction, 34 South was smart about grabbing a few. After a tasting that our wine notes guy, PB, gave in 2017, he said this wine emerged as way out the best. It will astound you, too - R 2,295

Whispering Angel rose; 34 South Restaurant

Whispering Angel Rose 2021

Made from Grenache, Cinsault and Vermentino, its pale color and rewarding taste profile is full and lush while being bone dry with a smooth finish. Premium rosé that you can drink from mid-day to midnight -  R598; glass R149

34 South Restaurant, Knysna, Wine list

Newton Johnson Family Pinot Noir 2020

The only producer to get eight successive 5 Stars for a Pinot Noir, Dave Johnson planted the then new Dijon clones that expressed fruit rather than wildness. Finely structured, red fruit-driven, and intriguing - R775

34 South Restaurant, Knysna, Wine list

Bouchard Finlayson Pinot Noir 2015

Peter Finlayson left Hamilton Russel in 1990 to set up Bouchard Finlayson next door in the Hemel  en Aarde valle of Hermanus. Peter understands the vagaries of the grape that made Burgundy famous. There is a calmness and togetherness in this wine - where the more wild forest than easy berries tastes emerge - R930

The High Road Directors Reserve 2017

A more assertive Cape Bordeaux blend, quite intense with 22 months in new French oak barrels. Present from a magnum to break the grip of its youth - R865

Holden Manz Vernissage 2020

These grapes were selected from distinct parcels with varying soil types. This complexity in growth has resulted in a wonderful intricacy in the wine. Individual varieties were bunch and berry sorted, crushed and destalked to tank. After careful blending trials and numerous test tastings, the final blend combined a variety of batches each contributing in its own unique way to make this a balanced, expressive and fruit-driven wine.

Atlas Swift Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

A better crop compared to 2019, owing to favourable post-harvest conditions, sufficient water for irrigation and relative moderate temperatures during ripening. Only the healthiest berries from hand-harvested grapes made it into the small, open-top fermenters where they were fermented on the skins. The use of older oak ensures that the primary focus on the mid palate is aimed at the bright raspberry- and plum fruit characters.

Waterford Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

Winter was cut a little short with temperatures rising quickly in August. Moderate to cool conditions during ripening resulted in wines with expressive aromatics and flavours. Exceptional white and red wines from this vintage, very classic in style. The wine is elegantly structured with a typical tight and dry structure which finishes with great balance and freshness.

Harry Hartman Finn 2022

A perfect blend of Syrah, Grenache and Cinsaut. Grenache-led, the wine is rich and full-bodied, with grenache provides a rich texture and fruity notes of plum and dark cherries, Syrah adding spice and earth tones, and Cinsaut finishing off with an excellent firm tannic structure. Like Harry’s favourite child, this wine is bold and full of personality. A smooth operator.

Yonder Hill Ankole 2018

By combining their passion for the majestic Ugandan longhorn cattle and the wines of Yonder Hill, they created their pinnacle blend – Ankole. Its smooth elegance can be enjoyed straight away, but, much like the growing horns of their Ankole cattle, it becomes even more impressive over time. Ankole is a very limited edition reserve that is exclusively only available for purchase on the estate and at 34 Degrees South.
