Somerbosch is an incredibly well priced winery, even more so because it’s on the border of Stellenbosch. This is their flagship wine. Can’t remember what’s in it. I have a vague memory of it being a Bordeaux style blend. Saw in 2017 with a magnum of this, good friends and a potjie that I cooked […]
Cheap and easy, warm and breezy. By no means a breathtaking wine, but well-prices enough to induce a sharp intake of air. Juicy berries all round.
Cheaper than a footballer’s wife, but better priced, homely and easy going. I wouldnt drink it with anything stronger than fish, but would make a fine companion on its own (like a footballer’s wife maybe?).
Fairly well behaved for a cheap date, but you get the feeling that you’ll regret it in the morning (especially on top of the two previous bottles). Way ahead of a lot of wine in the same price range though.
Great value for money. Soft as a feather duvet, rich in flavour, but not as heavyweight as your average cab. Built for the braai rather than the ballet.
Citrus, cut grass and all the other obvious stuff you get in cape sauv blancs. Ridiculously cheap for the decent quality as well.
Like a 2 Unlimited lyric, this wine lacks a bit of complexity. Unlike the dastardly dutch duo, it does improve over time (and with a bit of air, but that doesn’t fit the analogy).
If cherry and blackberry marmite existed it might taste a bit like this. Not quite as good as a 9 year old wine should taste, but not bad.
More robust than a lot of Pinotage, great taste and fantastic value (the polar opposite of whatever the Portuguese Ronaldo of wines is). Goes perfectly with roast pork.
