Twice is good. Remember to start tasting from the other side of the hall, just to prevent your second point from happening (again) ;) :D
Depending on how big the show is, I might have to go 3 times:
1. Start at the front
2. Start at the back
3. Start in the middle

Just to make sure I don't miss anything.

Any Meerlust Rubicon older than 7 years
Meerlust Chardonnay if you like them rich & buttery
Mulderbosch Chardonay - also buttery, but much more affordable
Simonsig Tiara 2000 (don't bother with 2001)
Any Chenin or Syrah by Saltaré
Anura Chenin Blanc
Springfield Methode Ancienne Chardonnay 2004 for a mind-blowing combination of dryness and tastiness
Springfield Special Cuvee 2007
Springfield Life from Stone (haven't tried new screw-top 2008 yet, but it's in my fridge and tempting me right now)
Any Springfield Whole Berry that's older than 5 years
Raka Biography Shiraz 2004 - you need to get the year right with this estate
Graham Beck Cap Classique 2000
Rijk's Semillon
Diemersfontein Summer's lease (keep for at least 5 years)

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 :D
Oh yes, how could I forget this one - great summer party wine!

Meerlust - Rubicon is superb, but very expensive at restaurants. I got a couple of bottles when I went for a tasting at Meerlust for R 200.00/bottle about a year back.

Avontuur - Baccarat is also another favourite of mine, as is Meerlust - Merlot.

Another superb wine is Hartenberg - The Mackenzie as well as Hartenberg - Shiraz.

For something differnet go to Waterford Estate and try the wine tasting with the choclates....

My favorite is Beyerskloof Pinotage Reserve 2006. I'm waiting for my pretty to mature in the next 2 years.

Klein Constantia - Sauvignon Blanc
Allesvellooren - Tinta Barocca
KWV Reserve wines are good - even some of the whites (some of their ordinary wines are OK as well)
Laborie make a good Shiraz and Cab Sav.

Finally got hold of some more Klein Constantia and KWV reserve Sauvignon Blancs:
