From our Wine Cellar

Our resident “Sommelier” is pleased to announce the arrival of a new wine as a result of a recent wine tasting held in the Britannia Room. Bon Courage Chardonnay Prestige Cuveé has won a gold award and an excellent wine at the price. Award winning wine produced by the Bruwer Family this Chardonnay has a lovely harmony of citrus, vanilla and subtle French oak. Ideal wine for our ladies of the club.


To follow shortly three new wines from the famous Riebeek Cellars in Riebeek Kasteel. Along with olive oil at a reasonable price also from Riebeek Kasteel, extra virgin olive oil in 1ltr containers @ R120-00. Details to follow once we have stock. Watch this space for the exclusively bottled red wine for Royal Natal Yacht Club called the “The Royal” soon to arrive and available only to our club. Upfront red fruit from South Africa’s own Pinotage is balanced by an elegant spicy Shiraz to offer a well-balanced, fruit driven wine enhanced by subtle oak maturation.


Riebeek Kasteel

Nestled in the picturesque Riebeek Valley, tucked up against the slopes of the majestic Kasteelberg mountain lies Riebeek Cellars. This medium-sized winery on the western coast of the Cape Province of South Africa, sources its grapes from the fertile Riebeek Valley and the slopes of the mountain where the climate is very similar to the Mediterranean.
