It’s wine o’ clock

Whether you’re partial to a crisp dry white, a fruity zesty rosé, or a ripe and full-bodied red with oodles of citrus or spice or rich mineral finishes, these are some really great bottles that should be in everyone’s summer wine rack.

A sweet nectar of the gods

Angels Tears Moscato 2018 is a heavenly natural sweet wine made in a refreshing style at Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek. This delightful, easy drinking, everyday crowd pleaser is light in body, fresh and fruity – perfect for summer. It teems with succulent stone fruit, litchi and citrus, enlivened by hints of floral and spicy Muscat notes. Enjoy it on a summer picnic finished off with fruit salad or with lightly spiced Indian or Asian-style dishes. Available countrywide for around R65. To buy online, visit www.grandeprovence.co.za.

The best of summer

Roodeberg, the legendary South African classic, has launched a generous new Rosé that is sure to bring friends together this summer. A delightful salmon-pink quaffer ideal for relaxed get-togethers, Roodeberg Rosé boast subtle aromas of watermelon, litchi and raspberry with hints of rose petal and Turkish delight, good acidity and a long, fruity finish that make this a good food wine on hot, balmy days. It’s the perfect patio wine and best enjoyed with foods meant to be shared such as tapas, paella, salads and skewers of chicken or pork grilled on the coals. Roodeberg Rosé is available at Pick n Pay stores or online at www.shopsawine.co.za/kwv/24-shop-for-wine at R85.

 

Best served at your next gathering

Neil Ellis Groenekloof Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is phenomenal value for money. Produced from low-yielding bush vines in the Darling Hills of the West Coast, it boasts a pale straw with green hues, bright aromatics of fresh late summer fruits and lifted florals with subtle herbaceous overtones. A refreshing aperitif, Neil Ellis Groenekloof Sauvignon Blanc 2017, is best enjoyed in the company of good friends with fresh oysters, asparagus, artichokes, sushi, smoked salmon, prawns, calamari, grilled fish, chicken or pork with lemon. Available countrywide for around R95.

Unoaked palate pleaser

With bright and brilliant green hues, Glenelly Glass Collection Unoaked Chardonnay 2018 is a natural ferment and unoaked wine that shows complex aromas of citrus peel, lemon, ripe pear and flint. On the palate there is a beautiful round comforting texture with wonderful length and intense fruit complexity. This zesty wine has palate weight from spending eight months on its lees and will age very well. Enjoy it with grilled calamari, tuna tartare, mezze platters, sushi, oysters, Caesar salad and summer pastas. Available countrywide for around R95.

 

Best chenin blanc in the world

Crowned as the best Chenin Blanc in the world, Spier’s 21 Gables Chenin Blanc 2016 is an ideal companion to South African cuisine, particularly sweeter and spicier dishes – think bobotie, smoorsnoek and waterblommetjie bredie. It’s a classic food wine, finding full expression when paired with the right dishes.  While it can be enjoyed now, this wine can sit in your cellar for eight years or even longer, rewarding patient drinkers with deepening intensity and complexity of flavours. Available countrywide for about R198 a bottle.
