ABOUT ATLAS SWIFT

Just unpacking the name of the brand gives you a sense of how proprietors Martin & Welma Smith view the world. Atlas, the titan of perseverance, tasked with holding up the sky represents how very seriously they take their commitment to protecting the lands on which they grow their grapes. It also speaks to the maps on which the terroirs they work with are laid out. Swifts, one of the fastest and most aerial of the bird species, represents their nimble exploration to find said terroirs. The project, which on the surface, focuses on site-specific Chardonnays from distinctive places scattered across the Western Cape of South Africa, carries with it so much more than just beautiful wines of exceptional texture (Martin is the KING of texture! – Cami). It carries with it the dreams of some of the most authentic souls we have the pleasure to know.

THE GOOD THINGS THEY DO
Martin & Welma see Atlas Swift as an opportunity to raise their young children in an environment where work can be fuelled by passion, where the land and the importance of protecting it, is paramount. They are shaping the next generation to be conscious and responsible for the unique place they hold in the world.
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
You really can taste the ocean on this one! The vineyard, which is about 8km from the sea, has really high levels of sodium (salt) and potassium in the soil, which Welma believes is the secret to that minerally (think of rocks along the shore), salty character in the wine.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Place: Cape South Coast, South Africa
Grape: Chardonnay
Style: Saline yet sultry
Ingredients: Grapes + limited sulphur

ABOUT EVOLUTION

Baby-brother brand to Sokol Blosser, this started as a project to continue releasing wines when a nasty pest called phylloxera wiped out most of their vineyards. Through luck and intention, it has evolved (see what we did there?) into a brand in its own right under siblings & co-presidents Alison & Alex Sokol Blosser

THE GOOD THINGS THEY DO
Gosh, besides not practising biodynamics (and Alex has some very good – and pretty entertaining reasons for that), there’s not much the Sokol Blossers don’t do exceptionally well. They’re B. Corp Certified, Salmon Safe, organic…heck, they’re even one of the first wineries in the world to have a Green Building certification for their cellar! Add in the hyper-sustainable angle of these cool kid boxes, and there’s not much more we could ask for!
OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
Evolution Chardonnay is anything but buttery, decidedly not oak-y and refreshes like summertime sprinklers. In a region that’s super-serious about its wine, the Sokol-Blossers have intentionally made this one in a style that you can just sit back and enjoy. Refreshing, easy-drinking, and one you can’t stop sipping.
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Place: Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA
Grape: Chardonnay
Style: Crisp, refreshing style. If you aren’t a Chardonnay person but want to experiment - this is an excellent choice!
Ingredients: Yeast (commercially available strains), sulfites, malic acid

Paper Kite White Wine
Thorne & Daughters

PAPER KITE OLD VINE SEMILLON

$398

By Thorne & Daughters

WHITE | BUTTER, BABY
Just think of anything yellow and delicious and you’re thinking of Paper Kite – butter, honey, peaches – they’re all here.

WHAT WE TASTE
Yellow flowers and honey with a sprinkle of salt

PERFECT PAIRING
With plenty of conviction, she stands up boldly to an array of flavours but works well for some contemplative thinking-drinking if there’s no food around.
TEMP CHECK
Give her a bit of time to shake the chill to better hear all she has to say. Get her out of the fridge about 15 minutes before drinking.
ABOUT THORNE & DAUGHTERS

They say, quite simply, that they are raising handcrafted wines along with their two daughters. But we think John & Tasha Seccombe are doing so much more than that! They’re raising the profile of forgotten grapes, reflecting on the heritage of a complicated wine-producing country and thoughtfully capturing a new narrative of what that could become.

OUR FAVE THING ABOUT THIS WINE
Mother vineyard to the Tin Soldier, Paper Kite is a celebration of the heritage and history of Semillon in South Africa. It’s made from an old vineyard that includes a mix of both ‘normal’ Semillon and Semillon Gris – which is a mutation (Oh, yes! Grapes have mutants!) that’s almost entirely unique to South Africa – nobody is completely sure how it even happened!
THE TECHNICAL STUFF
Place: Swartland, South Africa
Grape: Semillon Blanc, Semillon Gris
Style: Rich in flavour, colour and personality
