34 SOUTH WINE AND BEVERAGE LIST www.34south.biz 23 years ago – a year after 34 South opened on the Knysna Waterfront as a partnership between Charles van Tonder and Leslie Pieters, Charles asked PeeBee (Peter Bishop, a Mathematics teacher and Sports coach) to procure some old wines to sell and to advise on selections. Some great collections were sold and people came back each year looking for their birthday year wine or “What’s new?” We started a popular PeeBee’s Top Ten that made searching easier, and the big selling point was the story as narrated or as hand-written on cards. In that way, each customer was a winner – he had something he could brag about – and why not.  PeeBee’s interest in wine started in 1975 by BeeJay Lankwarden – a man of great kindness and aplomb. He has written on wine for Wynboer and for the CXPress and, now resident in Cape Town still attends top tastings to keep informed. PeeBee, Charles and Keith (Davis) – the Manager of 34 South – taste wines periodically in order to create a “A Rare and Fine Wine” Selection more specifically aimed at the tourist who wishes to be exposed to a higher level of wine than on ordinary lists. PeeBee looks at the structure, the memory, the length of the wine. Charles makes no apology for his role: “I taste it, I like it. It is much more than “eminently drinkable!” now, at the table, or at home. Keith, who deals directly with the Fine Wine lover focuses on the finish in so far as the wine matches the dishes at 34 South.  NEWTON JOHNSON PINOT NOIR 2017/18 *****  From all soils of farm’s sites. Perfumed with cranberries and violets; denser fruit substrata from clay-rich vineyards; then firm structure from higher-lying gravel, with Burgundian oak boost. Finesse, elegance, complexity. THE 34 SOUTH WINE PANEL CEDERBERG 5 GENERATIONS CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016 *****  David Nieuwoudt, 5th generation in the high-lying cool Cedeberg mountains is proud of the “Stellenbosch taken to the Hills” farm. Only 3000 of this particular wine is produced - mostly for the Winemakers Guild. Black currant, cassis, cherry, tobacco - a symphony of tastes. JEREMY WALKER’S GRANGEHURST NIKELA 2007 *****  In 1993 Jeremy joined the Pinotage Association who decreed that a “Cape Blend” must have 24% Pinotage and that is what he did to this wine. 24% Pinotage with the same amount of Shiraz, 34% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Merlot, fermented separately in barrels for 28 months and only released a decade later. Nikela means the offering of a gift to one’s ancestor. SPRINGFIELD WORK OF TIME 2014/15 ****  Maverick and Patriarch Abrie Bruwer values the names of his wines as his legacy to his children. This balanced “Cape Bordeaux blend” is a work of TIME, of ERAS, and is only produced in vintages of exceptional quality. Balance, harmony, calmness.
