New arrival: Billecart-Salmon Demi-sec

Billecart-Salmon Demi-Sec has made its debut in South Africa. This gorgeous softly sweet Champagne is a stylish blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier distinguished by Billecart-Salmon's signature class. It’s a rich attractive cuvée exuding citrus, pear-drop, white flowers and creamy brioche flavours and aromas. So, what would you pair with this gorgeous Champagne? It's the perfect pleasure with custard pastries, yellow fruit and strawberries, although its extravagance offers great drinking enjoyment all on its own.

Did you know that Champagne Billecart-Salmon turns 200 this year?

De Grendel's Story of Elim Shiraz

Elim is a charming small village situated on the Agulhas plain at the tip of Africa that caught the eye of De Grendel Winemaker, Charles Hopkins, who saw tremendous potential in the area. There are few areas in South Africa known for producing the sought-after black pepper flavour profile in Shiraz. Elim is one of them. This Shiraz, bottled in magnums only, recently claimed an enviable spot in the South African Top 12 Shiraz Challenge.
