Does what it says on the bottle.

Graça’s original positioning was famously as the “talking, eating, drinking, laughing, singing, sharing wine”. Reminiscent of Portuguese Vinho Verde in broad terms, it’s mainly Sauvignon Blanc but also contains Semillon and Colombar.

A long time since I’ve tried a bottle but peri-peri chicken at the legendary informal dining establishment that is Dias Tavern in Cape Town on Friday and it seemed like just the thing. Only 11.5% alcohol by volume, it’s lightly fruit with notes of lime and green melon. No great complexity but appealing  even so (score: 14.5/20) and at R54 a bottle off the restaurant winelist, more value for money than some of the insipid Sauvignon Blanc on offer at twice the price.
