Wine Reviews

Red Wine

From earthy, indigenous Pinotage to sumptuous, spicy Syrah; juicy Cabernet to elegant Bordeaux blends – South Africa has a lot to offer in the red wine category!

White Wine

World class Chenin Blanc, terroir expressive Sauvignon Blanc and exquisite white blends – South African white wine is seriously good stuff.

The Wine Oracle

My cousin ‘The Wine Oracle’ shares a similar passion for wine. He resides in Cardiff, Wales and is constantly on the lookout for wines from around the world. So join him as he searches far and wide for great wines from Chile, Argentina, USA, France, Spain, Italy, Australia and many more. I guarantee that you will enjoy his impeccable ‘international’ wine reviews – you may even find yourself having a chuckle or too!

Sparkling Wine

Bubbles captivate many a heart and so too do our very own Methode Cap Classiques and sparkling wines. There are a handful of producers who consistently make ‘bubbled’ wine worth celebrating!

Sweet Wine

Why not have a Vin de Constance or Straw Wine for dessert; and perhaps a port or sherry as a night cap – South Africa definitely has a knack for things sweet on the tongue!

Boutique Wine

Whether it’s wine made in a garage, the heart of a city or wine made with meticulous love and care on small estates – there are some enchanting boutique wines here.

Vintage Wine

Sometimes ‘patience is a virtue’ and the melody of flavours in an old wine can create music in your heart that is instantly timeless and memorable.


Whether it’s to enjoy on a lovely summer’s day, at sundowners or with a plate of sushi in the evening – sometimes Rose’ is the perfect partner.
