Zinfandel, A White Wine?

This wine was full of surprises, from the minute I poured the, all tge eay though tasting of the wine. Every sense of mine, was wrong in expectations. I expected a white wine, yet it was Rosé, when I poured. An intense copper colour, that was mesmerising to say the least.

The nose was stone fruit all over, quite sweet and peachy. That’s the flavour I expected, yet to my surprise, it was a lot lighter in body than the heavy richness the nose gave me. It was also far from sweet, more tarty in flavours and drying the mouth with every sip.

It grows on you with every sip. Expect the unexpected…. I loved it, and look forward to pairing it with dinner, which is a seared tuna that Mrs H does in a mighty fine way 😉


South African Wine Map

“Have a great weekend!”, I said. My colleague’s response to this was to ask me where I was going wine tasting this weekend. I fumbled with my answer, as to be honest I had no intention of going wine tasting at all. That she asked the question had me wondering if people thought all I do with my spare time is taste wine. That’s why I humbled along in answering.

Well, the evidence points to that. After all, who in their right mind would even find it interesting to buy a wine map of South Africa? It clearly is one of my hobbies.
