Lanzerac, Wine Tasting South African Style

If you try different wines, you are bound to figure out which wine you like! I have shared my tasting experience of the Lanzerac Cabernet Sauvignon, but I had never been to the wine farm. Zelda had invited us to come through, after an introduction by a common friend. A vineyard with quality wines, which takes the experience factor of their offering seriously!  This was not an opportunity to be missed. Lanzerac wine estate has a lot to offer, and I have always understood it to be not your “run of the mill” estate, whether it be for experiencing their wine tasting, restaurant, spa or hotel.

Red Wine, Diemersfontein Pinotage 2015

If you try different wines, you are bound to figure out which wine you like! Diemersfontein prides itself on being the original coffee Pinotage since 2001. It is a beautiful wine and country estate, with views of the Du Toitskloof and Bain’s Kloof mountain ranges.  A 45 minute drive from Cape Town, we have been to the estate a few times, as well as some of the neighbouring Wellington wine farms, as Chomba and I had to fulfil our desire to experience the chocolate and coffee Pinotage offerings of the wines of the region. It is therefore quite surprising that I have yet to blog about a Pinotage wine, when it is such a favourite in the household.
