Donovan works closely with growers in the Swartland to secure the best possible fruit at the optimal ripeness and balance. Grapes for this cuvee come mostly from Swartland (Paardeberg) and some from Stellenbosch (Bottelary and Helderberg). Soils are made up of decomposed granite and some gravel.

"The Rall white I’ve made with the most finesse' is its creator’s verdict on the 2017. Marrying Chenin with Verdelho and a splash of Viognier, it’s a subtle, allusive, gently wooded wine with bread and baking spice notes, a hint of peach and a core of chiselled acidity. A world class white wine at an eminently affordable price."  - Tim Atkin MW, South African Report 2018

Creamy, with notes of lemon and pineapple and a well-balanced a lick of oak. Rich, broad and textured on the palate. Finishes on a confident, balanced note.

Due to high demand we've temporarily increased our standard delivery fee to £12.50 for orders under £75 - orders over £75 still come with free delivery!

We are also no longer able to guarantee “Express" next day delivery. We hope to have this back up and running as soon as possible but in the meantime, our deliveries will take a little longer than usual (roughly 2-3 days).

These lovely wines and gifts are stored in our cellar in Clapham, ready for immediate dispatch (and drinking)! If we have less than 12 bottles, the display will show the number available today. If you’d like more than the number shown, or it’s shown as ‘Out of Stock’ / ‘Email to order’, just call us or drop us an email to confirm your order and delivery schedule, as our winemakers send us fresh stocks frequently.

Standard Delivery takes 2-3 working days and costs £7.50 for orders under £75. Orders over £75 are subject to FREE Standard Delivery. Standard and Express Delivery is available for most mainland UK postcodes as listed in our T&Cs. Express Delivery costs £12.50. Express delivery orders over £75 are £5.
For Express Delivery (next working day) orders need to be placed before 1pm. Orders placed after 1pm will be received after two business days. Orders placed for next day delivery after 1pm on a Friday and before 1pm on a Monday will be delivered on Tuesday. Orders placed on a Bank Holiday will be similarly processed the day after the Bank Holiday and delivered the following day.
Same Day Delivery costs £20. This option is available to most London postcodes as listed in our T&Cs, if ordered by 1pm Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays). If ordered after 1pm, you will receive your order on the next working day. We may be able to organise a speedy courier for you, so please call or email us if you have special requests. What a great way to get that wine to your office or home for the evening!
