Rall Wines, South Africa New Releases

We love the wines from Donovan Rall, and they are also extremely popular. He is not only a great winemaker but an incredibly likeable man making thoughtful, yet delicious wines. These new releases have just had some great press from Neal Martin in Vinous, all tasted in August 2018. We are also offering the amazing Ava Chenin Blanc 2016 that took ages to arrive that was Tim Atkin's' White Wine Discovery of The Year in late 2017. All wines offered duty paid but all can be supplied under bond.

Rall 'Ava' Chenin Blanc 2016

South Africa

Tim Atkin's 'White Wine Discovery of The Year"
"What a brilliant début. Sourced from 20-year-old bush vines on schist soils, it manages to be hugely concentrated without excessive alcohol. Savoury, saline and chiselled on the palate, like licking a stone. Lightly honeyed, with some tarte tatin notes, this is remarkably long and vivacious. 2018-26 97 points" Tim Atkin South Africa 2017 Special Report

Rall 'Ava' Syrah 2017

South Africa

"The 2017 AVA Syrah comes from 2.4 hectares of schist soils that only produced 1,000 bottles because of the drought. It includes around 50% or 60% whole bunch. Deep in colour, it has quite a high-toned bouquet, very floral with iodine, hints of cassis, white pepper and clove. The palate is medium-bodied with grippy tannin, black fruit, clove and white pepper. This has an almost Cornas-like personality, a little masculine with more black pepper toward the finish. Stunning.

Rall Cinsault 2017

South Africa

"The 2017 Cinsault comes from Darling and Swartland (it was previously just the former) from vines planted around 38 years ago. It is 100% whole bunch with a very quick ferment, pressed off after a week. It has a very pure bouquet of black currant, raspberry and cranberry scents that displays a very Burgundian-like personality. The palate is medium-bodied with fine structure, quite saline on the entry, and offers slightly darker fruit than its peers. I love the sapid nature of this wine and the focus and grip on the finish. This is an outstanding Cinsault, one of the best I have come across during my tastings. " 94 pts Neal Martin, Vinous Aug 2018

Rall Cinsault Blanc 2017

South Africa

"The 2017 Cinsault Blanc comes from a 0.2-hectare single vineyard of 35-year-old vines in Wellington that underwent a mutation, possibly in the 1930s, from Cinsault Gris and then Cinsault Blanc. It had been previously used for brandy production. It has a beautiful bouquet of yellow plum and almond scents, wonderfully defined and pure. The palate is very well balanced with crisp acidity, quite taut and linear, and fairly neutral in style, displaying a touch of lemongrass on the finish. Maybe the palate does not quite reach the heady heights of the nose, but this remains a delicious and unique wine." 91 pts Neal Martin, Vinous Aug 2018

Rall Grenache Blanc 2017

South Africa

"The 2017 Grenache Blanc comes from a 0.5-hectare parcel of ungrafted vines and was matured in two concrete eggs and one amphora. It is very well defined on the nose, featuring scents of white flowers, cold granite and hints of lemon curd. The palate is very well defined, with veins of lemongrass on the entry. It is beguiling in terms of harmony and comes packed full of flavour, offering ginger and dried orange peel toward the waxy-textured finish. You can imagine half of New York’s sommeliers going ga-ga for this, and rightly so, because it is simply a delicious South African white. " 94 pts Neal Martin Vinous Aug 2018
