Solms Delta Gemoedsrus 2009

Solms Delta on the outskirts of Franschhoek arouses interest because it truly is so much more than a winery. Visitor attractions include an on-site museum exploring the slave heritage of the area, a restaurant called Fyndraai (Afrikaans for “the fine end of the last turn” or the brink of orgasm) serving proudly Cape cuisine, forest […]

Bouchard Finlayson Blanc de Mer 2009

Conundrum out of Rutherford, California is a multi-varietal white blend, the components of which the producer attempts to keep secret but are said to include Chardonnay, Muscat, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Viognier. Some years ago my late dad and I bought a bottle back from the US to show to interested parties and I have […]

What “Bruce” drank on 30.06

Bruce says: “When I hear of celebs putting their names on bottles of wine I normally wouldn’t give it a second glance but bugger me if I’m not seriously glad to have picked up Welbedacht Cricket Pitch 2003 from Schalk Burger & Sons (of rugby fame)  for a mere 100 ZAR’s in the local bottlestore […]

Vondeling Babiana 2006

In Rossouw’s Restaurants 2010, Jean-Pierre Rossouw sums Pinelands establishment Joe Fish up perfectly as an “unexpected gem off an ugly shopping centre parking lot”. Ideal for a quick lunch of fish and chips and so that’s where Bernard le Roux, previously understudy to Zelma Long at Vilafonté and now winemaker at Noble Hill in Paarl, […]

What “Lauren” drank on 01.07

Lauren says: “Last night I made my first risotto, crammed with Portobello mushrooms, lashings of Beyerskloof Pinotage, baby spinach, tossed with parmesan and pine nuts. Enjoyed with a good friend, it was even better paired with a Jason’s Hill Pinotage 2005, still packed with lots of sweet juicy strawberry fruits with lovely smooth well integrated […]

Windmeul Chenin Blanc 2010

The older I get, the more I think I suffer from agoraphobia (fear of public places). With the 2010 Stellenbosch Wine Festival in full swing this weekend, I have to confess that I was glad to decamp to my parents-in-law’s home in Wellington for the week-end.

Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2007

Needing an end-of-day palate cleanser recently, we popped into Caveau in Heritage Square, Cape Town. The establishment continues to run its “Vintage Wine at Vintage Prices” promotion and when we saw Cape Point Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2007 at R170 a bottle, our minds were made up. Among CPV’s many attributes is how age-worthy the wines […]
