Exclusive Buitenverwachting Pre-Arrival

We loved our visit to Buitenverwachting, set in Constantia’s oldest and most prized vineyard, as much for the people, as its wines and beautiful setting. The ever genial host and owner, Lars Maack, is always smiling. He is joined by Brad Paton, who is one of the most lovely talented winemakers around, and the equally delightful, and wise headed, Herman Kirschbaum, previous cellar masters, who now oversees the vineyards. He knows the secret, forgotten it seems by many, of making the fine Bordeaux styles that age.  Brad took us on tour of the cellar and we  selected four wines for this pre-arrival release – see below. All are superb value but the star is the ‘Meifort’ that won the Riedel Trophy, so don’t miss that.
