Yellow House EAT Wine List

These following local wines have found their way into our cellar … and we would like to share them with you …


Prince Albert, by Diederik la Grange, local wine-maker extraordinaire.

Tempranillo Blanc de Noir (R190)
Substantial wooded Rosé perfect food wine – perfect for summer or winter.

SMDM ’24 (R185)
A fresh, delightfully dry alternative to hanepoot (a traditional sweet wine), with that evocative floral fruit on the nose, followed by soft apple and pear on the palate. Beautiful on a hot summer day.

Tinta Barocca (R220)
Traditional port grapes, crafted into a wonderful dry red, whilst capturing the essence of the Karoo heat and sun.

Oudtshoorn Karoo Route 62 (R170)
An easy-drinking wine to compliment a summer al fresco lunch – blended from noble white varieties. fruit-driven, dry and delicious!

Karoo Classique Cuvee de la Maison Pinot Noir Brut Rose (R280)

A vibrant copper salmon colour, reflecting fresh strawberries and raspberries, balanced by light, leesy flavours, like a crisp brioche. Add a vigorous mousse that lingers, and there! A perfect Karoo Bubbly!


Paradoks (R360)
Elegant pinot noir from a cool pocket of the Outeniqua mountains, aged for 14 months, is totally oblivious to the fact that the same quantity of cinsaut, humble old-timer workhorse, is undergoing the same treatment. The day arrives and they are introduced to each other in the bottle. Like pinotage, but not pinotage. That’s the paradox.

Chenin Blanc (R210)
Older vines sourced from all over the Klein Karoo,
delivering a pure, fresh chenin, a taste of soft stone
fruit, golden kiwi and pear aromas.



Chenin Blanc (R220)
Wonderfully crafted wine by one of South Africa’s wine legends. Grapes from the Swartland, a hint of apricots and lemon.

Peter Bayly lll (R380)
A real novelty – three important Port wine varietals blended as a table wine. These grapes grow high up against the Swartberg Mountains, working hard to get water amongst the shoal. The result is a plush, broody wine, perfect with lamb shank, and other intense flavours.


Skaamgesiggie 2020 (R320)

A pinot noir cap classique from the strandveld, named after a rare, low-growing protea. The rosegold etiquette, lingering taste of strawberries and captured sea-air, together with a fine mousse, makes this the bubbly to celebrate a clear day, the mountains etched against the blue blue karoo sky.

Paul René Brut Chardonnay (R460)
Celebrate with citrus blossom and nougat flavour! Superb craftmanship – 44 months on the lees after which it was manually riddled and degorged.

Colmant Absolu (R980)
Absolu Dosage Zero NV is 100% Chardonnay with fruit from Franschhoek, Robertson and Elgin. A portion of the base wine fermented in French oak barrels while a further 15% of reserve wine from the 8 previous vintages is also blended in. These techniques contribute to the complexity and elegance – as does the extended 7 years maturation on lees plus an extra year of maturation on the cork. We are so proud to stock this fait accompli.

Villiera Tradition Brut (R290)
Chardonnay-driven blend of red and white grapes makes this a zesty, celebratory sparkling wine.

Makeba Pinot Noir 2018 (R360)
A serious Cap Classique, named after Mama Africa, singer, songwriter and civil rights activist. Four years on the lees give this bubbly an incredible mouthfeel. 100% pinot noir.

Stellenrust Spumante (R190)
South Africa meets Italy in this superbly crafted sparkling wine, Prosecco-influenced, using the charmat method. Every day holds a reason for drinking sparkling wine!


Cape Point Vineyards (R55 | R190)

Cape Town
A coastal, minerally white, with some fruit and the added bonus of being low in alcohol.

Groote Post Sea Salter (Blanc Fumé)  (R295)
Darling Hills
The nose shows fruit notes of granadilla, yellow stone fruit, guava and fynbos. The palate offers tropical fruit notes with hints of salinity and minerality, followed by a long lingering finish.

Newton Johnson (R230)
Hemel en Aarde
Fine, crystalline character with traces of flint. Distinct perfumed wafts of sweet lime blossom and earthy fynbos broaden into generous apricot and a waxy underlayer.

Strandveld Pofadderbos (R250)
Cape Agulhas
Passionfruit and grapefruit on the nose and fynbos and seashell minerality on the palate.

Gabriëlskloof (R200)
Here you will detect some lemon verbena and thyme, and a slight smokiness. Classic Sauvignon with a slight yeasty undertone, due to having been on the lees for some months.

Little Eagle (R220)
Fantastic cool-climate Sauvignon, with that unique character one gets from high altitude grapes. Experience how the passionfruit develops as you drink this wine.


M•A•N Family Wines Free-run Steen (R55 | R190)
A crisp and refreshing wine with an abundance of fruit on the palate, balanced with minerality and a rich mouthfeel.

Rijk’s Estate Private Cellar (R340)
Grapes picked at night to avoid heat interfering with the delicate fynbos and floral perfume, and tastes of nectarine and orange. Natural yeast, French and Hungarian wood add another layer to this fantastic chenin.

A.A Badenhorst Family Wines – Golden Slopes (R600)
Old Vine Project – vineyards planted in 1968. Single vineyard grapes sourced from yellow granite soils at the top of the farm. Bottled late, it’s a gorgeous wine with a combination of perfume, focus and density, showing leesy richness and thrilling, vibrant acidity.

Miles Mossop The Introduction (R260)
Stellenbosch and Swartland
Summer in a glass… floral, peach and pineapple on the nose and crisp sip leading to a lingering creaminess. Elegant.


Vriesenhof (R55 | R190)
Bright, green-gold in appearance. Classic Chardonnay aromas of citrus and ripe apple combine seamlessly with creamy lees notes. Bracing and mineral in style. Layers of succulent fruit flavours are balanced by perfectly balanced acidity and a lengthy, savoury finish.

Migliarina 2022 (R270)
Western Cape
Handcrafted by a burgundy specialist from a single vineyard. Whole bunch pressed and fermented naturally in Hungarian and French oak. You can expect the freshness of nectarines, ginger and lingering vanilla.

Cape Fynbos Bubbly Chardonnay (R55)
A fun alternative – fine bubbles, a taste of gooseberry, pear and apple. Comes in a beautifully designed tin, celebrating the Cape Fynbos Kingdom. Vegan-friendly.

Weltevrede Calcrete (R230)
Bright, vibrant and limey. Revitalising, cool sensation on the palate, a mouth-watering tension, steeliness, the taste of gun flint, and lime. Pure and brilliant minerality.


Strandveld Adamastor 2019 (R290)

Named for the storms that early explorers had to endure when rounding the Southernmost tip of Africa. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc blend with that typical Elim minerality and fynbos characters with citrus and white stone fruit. Full and creamy on the palate, with a combination of toasted oak flavours and a dry minerality on the aftertaste.

Keermont Terasse (R220)
No fewer than 6 white varietals contribute to an inviting aroma with notes of spring flowers, ripe apricots and citrus, and a hint of fennel. The palate is soft and luscious, with lovely fresh acidity and an array of summer fruit flavours complimented by richer more spicy, savoury fruit. This follows into a lingering aftertaste with salty acidity.


Goats do Roam Rosé (R55 | R190)
Ach, what to say? Superbly crafted Grenache Noir and Cinsaut… a wine for long lunches under trees, pizza, good (and potentially good) friends. Memories. Refreshing and light. We love.

Chamonix (R230)
Classically styled dry Pinot Noir Rosé, beautiful rose gold colour and perfectly balanced floral aromas and balancing acidity.

Olifantsberg Grenache Rosé (R220)
Lightest pale colour, blood orange and some floral notes on the nose. Grapefruit and herbs combine in a triumph of textures and visions of yachts bobbing in a distant harbour.


M•A•N Jan Fiskaal (R60 | R190)
An elegant, classic style of Merlot with soft smooth tannins. Dark ruby colour with aromas of plum, cherry and spices, complemented by earthy notes. Hints of dark chocolate and blueberries are followed by a long lingering finish.

Eagle’s Nest (R390)
A serious Merlot from a cool, windswept vineyard – the steepest in the country. Peppery and distinct, pure and fruity, with hints of tobacco.

Villiera (R210)
Villiera is known for Merlot. You will pick up dark berries, chocolate and dried mint in this wine.


M•A•N Ou Kalant (R60 | R190)
A perfect marriage of new world vibrant fruit and old world elegance. Deep garnet in colour, aromas of dark cherries with cassis and red-currant fruit on the palate. Silky tannins and a long smooth finish.

Peter Falke 2019 (R410)
Helderberg, Stellenbosch
Dark-hued, exceptional character and broody dark fruit, liquorice and earthiness from a Cabernet specialist and terroir.

Jakkalsvlei (R350)
The dramatic bottle and label herald a richness of berries and plum. There is ripe fruit on the nose, followed by full berry flavours and gentle oak, ensuring a toasty, lingering finish.

Vriesenhof (R240)
Ancient riverbeds form the base of a perfect terroir to grow Cabernet. Blackcurrants and blueberry on the nose, and a whiff of freshly-sharpened wooden pencil. On the tongue you could find dark berries and plum, progressing to savoury tea leaf notes. It will send you off with grippy tannins and a lingering cedar oak finish.

“South-Africa in a bottle”

Croydon Covenant (R250)
Dark, inky and full of complex flavours unfolding as you drink. Rooibos, bacon, sweet and sour sauce…

Beaumont Jackals River (R430)
Bot River
A classy, medium-bodied South African icon from a cooler climate. Most people either love or hate Pinotage. This elegant wine invites you to experience the gentle inner beauty of the cultivar, offering fresh fruit and a hint of spice, making it the perfect partner to our spicier dishes.


M•A•N Skaapveld Syrah (R60 | R190)
Dark plum aromas with a touch of liquorice spice, and lasting flavours of blackcurrant on the palate and rounded off with smooth well-integrated tannins.

Little Eagle (R250)
This wine is produced from grapes growing on the steepest vineyard in South Africa, resulting in complex layers of smokiness and some savoury notes. Take a sip and discover spice and dark berries. Breathe out through your nose and there it is! Violets.

Joostenberg Klippe Kou (R310)
Smokey perfume and deep, intense berry flavours created by the vines’ hardship of growing through rocky soil. This wine is medium bodied, fresh and delicious (but we would like to add that we would have spelled it as one word…)

Hartenberg Doorkeeper (R230)
Peppery, but also caramel whiffs lead on to dark berries and something meaty in the mouth. A superb match for lamb and beef.


The Valley (R310)
The Valley Pinot Noir is all about attitude. Blended from the Pinot Noir clones in the Elgin valley this wine is a bit in your face and quickly lets you know what it is about. rich fruit on the nose with some perfume and orange peel.

Jasper Raats Cuvee Rika (R430)
Very elegant and charming, quite floral and light. You might detect some buchu and lavender on the nose, and then a delightful, juicy fruitiness followed by some savoury islands as the wine spreads over your palate.


Boschkloof Kottabos (R300)
Commemorating an Ancient Greek game of flinging lees at a target, this wine is about fun, but also precision and skill. Expect a heavily perfume and good structure. An unusual, but marvelous food wine. Syrah / Grenache.

Olifantsberg Grenache Noir (R360)
Grenache is the backbone of the world’s most expensive wines, such as those from Châteuaneuf-du-pape. We love this particular wine for its aromatic nose and deep citrus and fynbos notes.

Gabriëlskloof The Blend (R220)
Bot River
Cabernet Sauvignon is the key player in this dark, broody, bordeaux-style blend, lending aromas of savoury, wet earth and tastes of black berries and the umami of cured meat to a brilliantly structured wine, balancing alcohol and finely integrated tannins and leaving in its wake cloves and star anise.

Raats Red Jasper (R430)
Imagine walking in a forest after rain. Inhale the berries and spice on the plants as they dry, the damp forest floor, the musty smell of wet leaves. Experience how you walk without a sound on the soft carpet of plant material. This wine captures all that, with intense structure and perfected craftmanship. A classic Bordeaux blend to enjoy with slow-cooked red meat and / or good company.

Doolhof Mountain Range Malbec/Merlot (R190)
From ‘the home of malbec’ – Aromas of sweet spice, black cherries, and plum with subtle hints of cedar and rustic leather. The palate pleases with soft, juicy tannins which are well balanced to offer allround balance and finesse with a lingering finish.

A Word from our Coffee Roaster: Karoo Roast

Karoo Roast is the name of my little coffee roastery in Prince Albert. The beans grew in the
Brazilian and El Salvador sun and are roasted with an electrical roaster, powered by the same

For Yellow House I make a blend of Brazil Cerrado and the El Salvador Santa Ana.
Cerrado coffee is generally clean with a good body (creamy mouthfeel), low acidity, wellbalanced, and often exhibiting a nutty and even slightly caramelly flavour and more chocolaty with a the little darker roast.

The Santa Ana has a round body with honey, melon, Grapefruit taste with a hint of spice. It’s
bright with sweet acidity.

Why I like it. It’s rich, sweet and balanced. Gentle with wine tones, fruit and low-key floral notes
run through an aroma and cup, rounding toward milk chocolate in the finish.

Enjoy a nice cup of coffee at Yellow House.
