As the days become longer and warmer, you may be looking for a delicious bottle of wine to savour. Perfectly chilled, a glass of wine can be the perfect accompaniment to summer dishes or simply enjoyed on their own alongside great conversation.
Here are three bottles to try:
Angels Tears Rose 2018 is summer in a glass
Pinotage and Shiraz grapes seamlessly blend to create a rose bursting with seasonal berries from Grande Provence Heritage Wine Estate in Franschhoek. This bottle brings the fruity flavours of strawberry, raspberry and cherry to life, culminating in a lively, crisp and dry wine that’s not only its easy on the palate, but on the pocket as well, priced at R65.
Add vibrant colour to the table with Delheim’s Chenin Blanc Wild Ferment 2017
Expect intense flavours and aroma from the Chenin Blanc Wild Ferment 2017, with characteristics reminiscent of barley, apricots and peaches, alongside citrus flavours. With a bottle priced at around R125, enjoy it with Asian-inspired dishes as a decadent festive treat.
Get ready for cool summer nights with Stellenbosch Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2018
One of Stellenbosch Hills’ top-performing wines, this Sauvignon Blanc has bagged two golds and double-gold for its 2017 vintage for good reason. Made with hand-selected grapes, this bottle promises a full-bodied and crisp wine with a zesty lime finish. Enjoy green fig, gooseberry and sweet melon aromas alongside subtle asparagus and guava. Pair it with grilled fish and a tomato, fresh basil and mozzarella salad and you’ll be dubbed the perfect host. A bottle retails for R52-R80.
