    Lanzerac Pinotage 2011. Lanzerac has some fantastic wine that I’ve had the privilege to taste.

    Meerlust Rubicon is a firm favourite but I would be very happy to try them all!

    The festival dates are perfect for me because they fall in a period when I will have some time to spare so I hope I win.

    Lanzerac Rose 2012 is my A-B-S-O-L-U-T-E favourite! Describes me best too 🙂 The fruity summer flavour that teases the nose and keeps the tongue lingering! It’s low in alcohol and a definite “drink-me-now”. Enjoyed at any occasion!

    Definitely the Jordan Prospector Syrah. I love wines that are rich and full bodied, but not too heavy and therefore I find this Syrah to be perfect! This wine doesn’t fail to deliver on the ripe dark fruit flavours as well as the dark chocolate. One simply can’t have just one glass of this, DELICIOUS!

    I come from Zimbabwe, and so before I moved to Cape Town my knowledge of wine was limited to Mukuyu (decent) and Green Valley (aka Death Valley) wines. This knowledge was enriched by my time at Rhodes University, when I also discovered Tassies and Crackling. It was, as you can imagine, a dark time for the latent wine-lover within me. Then, just over a year ago, my life was turned upside down, necessitating a soul-searching solo backpacking trip around South Africa. I gained much more than an appreciation of fine wines from this journey, but one of the most poignant moments came when I found myself sitting on a deck overlooking Keurboom Strand beach, near Plett, sipping a glass of Meerlust Rubicon. Before me was a sunset as plummy and rouge as the ruby nectar I held in my hands. It’s been my favourite wine ever since.

    Without a single doubt the best wine on that list is the Jordan Prospector Syrah 2009.
    I love a full bodied Red Wine with a good meal, and good company.
    Hell, Pick n Pay should’ve just made it six bottles of the Syrah! 😉

    Where does one start – spoilt for choice we are here in the Cape.
    DOOLHOF Went to their premises to buy some of their Sauvignon Blanc as I KNOW served chilled it’s the best in the west. While out at Doolhof I tried their REDS even better that their whites. Guess what wine you will get if you pop over to my house !!!

    Meerlust Rubicon has a reputation and I am leaning towards that. But I know that I love Pinotage and am going to go with the Lanzerac Pino.
