This Merlot is a year younger than my marriage, which we’re celebrating today. Soft, forgiving and better for the years. I’ll leave it to you to decide if I’m talking about the wine or my wife.
One of my favourite wineries, and one of my favourite Sauv Blancs. Not really representative of your typical South African Sauv Blanc so try something else if that’s what you’re after, but if you want a more full-bodied, yeasty, almost Chardonnay-esque Sauvignon Blanc, then give this a go. Either way visit the winery.
Tastes like liquid Christmas pudding with the massive advantage of actually being a wine rather than a Christmas pudding. Not sure if it would go with Christmas pudding, and I doubt I’ll ever know because I don’t eat the stuff, but it slid down with the amazing beef brisket I had it with.
High Constantia is a personal favourite winery. It’s not cheap, but it’s down to earth and fun and the wine is heavyweight, big boy, no modern labels, serious stuff. This Bordeaux style blend (all 5 grapes in attendance) is no exception. Smoother than a silkworm smothered in butter. The perfect compliment to the roast rolled […]
Cracking open some of this to celebrate the end of a lot of hard work. The day went so well that I could probably drink Irn Bru and enjoy it, but that shouldn’t detract from what is a beautiful drop of bubbly. Sharp, crisp, appley and better put together than this sentence.
This is a Mike Tyson wine. Luckily I had gem squash and blue cheese with the pork belly I drank this with or it would have been a first round knockout. Deep dark colour, and a huge red berry punch to the gut. Amazing.
Really disappointed. Tried this before and it was way better (unless I’ve got the wrong one). Nice and smooth and well balanced, tastes like apple juice.
