Hemel-en-Aarde Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Black cherry and spice, lifted aromatics. This showed as much more complex and open than the ‘17 tasted a few days earlier at a restaurant — a day ago

Ashbourne Pinotage 2016

Black fruits, drying tannin, much bigger and more extracted than the preceding wines. Even though this is the oldest wine poured, it’s the least open today — a day ago

T'Voetpad White Blend 2014

A wealth of distinct aromas - remember the perfume - Angel- popular in the early 2000’s? There is also popcorn, orange blossom, white roses, vanilla, nutmeg, yellow apple, Asian pear, and plenty more. It’s a field blend of Semillon, Semillon Gris, Palomino, Chenin, and Muscat. Big and powerful. Drink on a well rested brain. — 12 days ago
