Graham Beck Cuvée Clive 2009

On Friday, lunch prepared by chef Duncan Doherty at The Flagship in Simon’s Town, each of the six courses paired with bubblies of different style and age.

Dax Villanueva: The Story of The Yellow Tin

If I mention the name Badenhorst, you probably think of Adi Badenhorst and A.A. Badenhorst Family wines. Understandably so, as Badenhorst wines have developed quite a reputation and Adi himself is quite a character. But not many people know that just as the Badenhorst family has established itself as a significant player in the South [...]

David Donde: How to make great-tasting coffee at home

I am often asked how to make great coffee at home. Well, actually, I am usually asked “Which (overpriced) espresso machine should I buy?”. Presumably one’s life is better and more fulfilled with a shiny, huge, dust-gathering and divorce-inducing, Eskom-load-shedding triggering geyser- filled contraption sitting on the kitchen counter. My answer is such devices are [...]

Marthélize Tredoux: The future of Pinotage?

Pinotage. The very mention strikes fear (or a dollop of disdain) into the hearts of many. And that’s a massive problem. No other varietal has stirred the level of controversy that Pinotage does in the local wine industry. Not even the Chenin Blanc epic – from lonely, shunned Steen to present-day darling of the wine [...]

Remhoogte Reserve Honeybunch Chenin Blanc 2012

The whole concept of site really should be leveraged more by the local wine industry and one idea I’ve had towards this end is to get an estate agency like Pam Golding or Seeff to sponsor a competition dedicated to wines made from registered single vineyards. After all, whether it’s wine or property, it all [...]

David Bristow: In search of winter fortification

This is the time when snow lies scattered across the high ground of South Africa – like clothes strewn across the floor of a teenager’s bedroom. While not exactly the Alps, for a nation that does not much do central heating the next best thing to a brandy-bearing dog is a jug of fortified wine. [...]

Zonnebloem Lauréat 2012

Although the faux Petrus label will always get me, the 2012 vintage of Zonnebloem Lauréat is actually pretty decent stuff. It’s a blend of 45% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot plus an unconventional 5% Shiraz and 5% Mourvèdre; maturation lasted 14 months in French and Hungarian oak, a combination of first- and [...]
