    Ek het die summaridge 2010 chardonnay al vroeer die jaar as uitstekend op jou site beskryf.

    N Paar goeie keuses en dan natuurlik n paar verrassings. Ek is mal oor hierdie industrie

    Boy, I’m looking forward to tasting those museum class wines! Burgundy Lover’s Fest and Old Mutual Trophy Public Showcase two days in a row next week. Boom!

    Alles, Smirrie. Ou wyn is altyd interessant, selfs al is dit nie so wonderlik goed nie. Tyd bring mos daai spesiale verandering in ‘n wyn waarmee niks kan vergelyk nie. Van dit wat gelys is hierbo, sien ek seker die meeste uit na die KWV Reserve Port 1929 (oupagrootjie) en die Cape Point Vineyards Semillon 2008 (eintlik nog ‘n net ‘n tiener), maar wie weet watter juwele lê nog tussen die silwer medaljes ook…

    I find that this show is a little dominated by white wines? Am I the only one that feels this way? I feel that the red wine category in SA is so much more exciting, yet it is still only the white wines that feature at shows like this. What do you guys think?
