Tastes like fruit that needs to spend a week in a bowl of bananas and ripen up a little. Fair price, but not putting this on my list of golden Oddbins numbers.
Tastes sharp and slightly sour like very young apples. Not unpleasant, but would be better if it tasted like juicy red apples (but not all apples are red – 100 dance music points if you get that reference). Improved slightly by drinking it while watching Arsenal capitulating in Europe. Again.
Cheapo Makro special. Didnt expect much, wasn’t disappointed. Bring it to a braai then drink your mate’s good wine. Good for R35 wine, nothing more.
Cheap but not overly cheerful. Acidic and has that smell of garlic sausage and militant hangover that cheaper wines often have. Still its only R40 a bottle. Needs must when the devil just finished off the good wine.
So-so, but slips down easily and goes well with sushi. Nice summer drink. Doesnt need food.
Drinking this with food is definitely the best approach, but like Paul McCartney’s ex wife, this is definitely missing something. Still a fairly polite and civilised wine though (unlike the ex-wife allegedly)
Sauv /Chenin blend. Cheap and cheerful. Bit sharp to drink on its own, but good enough with food.
Cheap easy drinking sauv blanc, chenin, viognier blend. Can drink it on its own or with food, just not with chilli and lime pasta like I just did.
Got this on a deal from 5 ounces. Much like buying a small functional laptop, it serves a purpose, is worth the money, but you’ll yearn for an overpriced iPad. Tobacco smells and flavours with a hint of Blackberry, but definitely no Apple.
