Club Wines - April 2019


Pairs With

Thai Curry, Tomato based seafood dishes

Seven Springs Sauvignon Blanc

Flavour-filled and aromatic punch. Concentrated yet a medium body, soft acidity and a clean, refreshing palate interlaced with flavours of green apple, kiwi and grapefruit. The bouquet has floral notes of elderflower and aromas of gooseberry, litchi and grapefruit. Slight hints of green pepper and fig.

I would definitely recommend decanting this wine before drinking as it will aid in opening up the wine and releasing the myriad of aromas and flavours.

Pairs with

Great with fish, poultry, veal, pasta and salads.

Nederberg The Anchorman

This wine is made from Chenin blanc (85%) and Grenache blanc (15%).

The Chenin fruit was sourced from old, low-yielding, dryland bush vines in Wellington and Darling, while the Grenache blanc comes from trellised vines in Franschhoek.

Brilliant with a golden hue, Ripe fruits, especially apricots and nectarines, with floral hints and traces of raisin and spice.Well-balanced, fresh and fruity with a beautiful minerality and an excellent structure.

Black Elephant Vintners The Fox & the Flamingo

A full bodied Rose! 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, 24hrs skin contact, and 6 months in old French oak.

Bright ruby red in colour, with hints of sweet, tangy citrus, blackcurrant and mango in addition to savoury flavours such as leather, tobacco, and bell pepper. For all of those robust flavours, this rosé is crisp and creamy with balanced acidity and a lingering taste of blood orange and white peaches.
