DE MEYE CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2011

“Stellenbosch is known for its ability to grow great Cabernets. De Meye Cabernet is a well rounded wine with a good balance of alchohol and tannins that leaves a lingering fruity and spicy feel in your mouth, without the heavy tannins sometimes associated with Cabernet Sauvignon. Wow – did I just string that all into one sentence?” – Mathew

DE MEYE CHENIN BLANC 2015

“Ok so this must be my favourite all day drinking wine. Phil and I have spent so many hours at our local side walk café drinking bottle after bottle. Your palatte just doesn’t tire of it. Its well balanced acids and fruity taste leave you feeling refreshed. It feels like the coca cola of white wine.

Chenin Blanc also known as Pineau de la Loire is the most widely planted cultivar in South Africa. In the 1960’s a brand called Lieberstein (a semi sweet version of Chenin blanc) enjoyed notoriety as the single biggest selling brand in the world.” – Mathew

DE MEYE SHIRAZ ROSÉ 2015 (sold out)

Since its arrival in Copenhagen this little wine has caused quite a stir. Dry, crisp and fruity it is very different to what you expect. Pleasantly so. The colour is so nice – not your average pale pink Rose. I cant wait for summer for the true potential to be seen. Long lazy afternoons. A glass of pink and good friends. Drink it cold. It is honestly one of the best Rose’s I have ever tasted. I have had so many compliments from Danish guys and once you’ve tasted it you will know why.” – Mathew
