Tread Lightly by Backsberg

South Africa Merlot 2014

The photo here sums up my thoughts on this PLASTIC bottle of wine. My boyfriend’s bare chest is perfectly captured within the walls of my glass while he covers the tender spots. Drop this bottle like it’s hot and it still won’t break - the pool perfect red that actually still tastes good. Not the best, but for summer festivities, winenot? — 2 months ago

Chardonnay 2016

That Chardonnay is amazing value for money! Slightly oaked (only 30% of the wine was matured around 6 months in oak barrels), it is so nice integrated into the wine, which is still very fresh, floral with nice acidity. Very good! — 2 years ago


Family Reserve Cabernet-Shiraz Blend 2005

Open nose with plumb, some cherry and cacao. Nice tanines, good acidity, warm red fruit and a very long finish. — 5 years ago

I remember drinking a bottle of this wine when I first started dating Sandra. We went out for dinner at Prosopa in Waterkloof Ridge. I remember having lamb, Sandra had fish. Good memories. Still a great wine. — 5 years ago

Pinotage 2015
