Wines To Taste

Deimersfontein Pinotage: known as the original Coffee / Chocolate Pinotage.  This wine spearheaded what is now an emerging category in South Africa.  It is one of our favorites with its older sister, the 2007, winning The People’s Choice at the Durban.

Deimersfontein Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon: intense black current, followed by the slight mint and dried laurel with light cloves on the exit.  On the palate a mixed plum and red fruit, added spice and finishes with dark chocolate and herb.

Deimersfontein Shiraz: on the nose morello cherries and mulberry mix, with cloves, white pepper and a hint of pencil shavings . Palate is round and complex, spicy finish, lingering acidity backed by firm tannins.

Raka Biography Shiraz: a wonderfully smooth and silky shiraz. This beautiful wine has big nose of smokey oak and fruitcake with subtle hints of white pepper. Its elegance shows excellent balance between berry fruit and spice, with a touch of sweet vanilla on the finish.

Raka Quinary: the 2005 Quinary is an elegant, complex and sophisticated Bordeaux blend. One critic refers to the process of blending Bordeaux as ‘Painting with Flavor’. That is exactly what wine maker Josef Dreyer has done in creating this materpiece.

Ridgeback Viognier: an incredibly well layered white with tropical bursting flavors and fatness. A delightful, more intriguing alternative to a Chardonnay, this is not a wine for casual consumption but one you find commands your attention with every sip.

This event will take place at Venue Restaurant on November 22 from 3 – 6pm.
