I am told this is a once off release! That says what I had on Saturday, with a special friend, was indeed a special South African wine.
If you try different wines, you are bound to figure out what works for you. One part of me wants to do a dipstick and check how useful, you, the reader, are finding these blog posts. Another part of me says it’s too early, keep writing because with hundreds of wine types and styles out there in the world, I have not even scratched the surface with the four South African wines I have blogged about so far. We need more time. Then we can have a useful dipstick test, but feedback along the way is very welcome and useful. I already have a request from Iblis Bane, and I have committed to tasting a Cabernet Sauvignon. That won’t be today though, as I had already lined up the next couple of tastes. Today, I get to share with you the Steenberg Rosé 2016 vintage.
While my wine of the week has by some form of coincidence focused on South African wine from Stellenbosch, don’t under estimate the calibre and artillery that comes from Constantia wines. Scenes from wine tasting at Steenberg! The red wines are two sets of the same three wines. Knowing that, would you care to guess what’s in each glass, by the grape?
