I always though rose was for people who couldn't make up their minds about what real wine to choose.The best ROSE i've ever tasted:
From HermanusPietersFontein (In Hermanus) : Bloos (http://www.hpf1855.co.za/)
It's absolutely brilliant, light and fruity while at the same time not being sweet and is just dry enough to get you to take another sip. With a verrry rewarding aftertaste, and when it meets your tastebuds, they smile.
Ah . . .ok.Still trying to make up my mind on the other wines bought there ...
I second the Rubicon, but too expensive in my opinion.
My weapon of choice is the 2006 Beyerskloof Pinotage and the 2004 Alto Rouge.
I am big fan of Beyerskloof Poinotage and the Fairview rage of red wines
Good choices in the medium range.
If you want to chose a wine for a girl, I strongly recommend the Chardonnay Pinot Noir from Haute Cabriere. For some reasons girls go moggy for this wine. Get you in the good books quickly
I had a '77. Damn it was nice. Cork started to leak, so I decided to have a go at it. I've been hooked on Kanonkop since then.I haven't tasted the Kanonkop Cab yet, but I have a 2003 in the cellar (wineboxes laid flat in the kitchen cupboard) which I want to keep for a couple of years.
BTW, next week is Winex at the Sandton Convention Centre.
I'm not a expert, so the top quality(and price) wines are usually lost on me, I'm sure there are many I would like, but I tend to stick to what I know and enjoy. My wife likes white also, and we often have some Nederburg lyric 2005/2006 with seafood or chicken dishes, cheap and not half bad for a white.
When you have a chance, perhaps over December, go and do some wine routes. That way you get to:
(1) Get trashed
(2) In a nice surrounding
(3) Get to ask pseudo-intellegent questions which will give you a much greater appreciation of wine.
(4) Expand your range of wines, and find more wines that you like.
