Great food & great wines!

Right now we’re really enjoying Pinotage, especially the latest vintages released by Delheim … The new Delheim Pinotage 2017 is a wine of alluring mystery and complexity, while the Pinotage Rosé 2019 is fun and floral in character. The Pinotage, a medium-bodied wine with rich, crimson hues, is all cranberry and plum that’s just the ticket for a diverse variety of dishes, even sweets like a salted chocolate and berry ice-cream. The Delheim Pinotage Rosé, however, is fresh, fruit-driven and elegant and pairs very well with winter dishes like spicy curries or a Thai coconut milk noodle soup. Good news for vegans, too … unlike most other wines, only vegetable proteins are used to clarify the juice and wine so it’s vegan-friendly! Pinotage Rosé, R80 to R85 and Pinotage around R145 to R150.
