A good chill begs for an even warmer wine. Think hearty foods paired with strong wines. What’s a meaty stew, soup or spicy curry without some cabernet sauvignon? Franschhoek Cellar’s bold red is filled to the flavour brim with blackcurrants and berry flavours and spicy tobacco oak. If you prefer shiraz, expect mulberry and plum and oak spice – perfect with a pepper steak. Let the old times roll with their Old Museum merlot and its black cherry and velvety tannins or the Stone Bridge pinotage with flavours of red grapefruit and sweet spices.
Celebrate these winter wines at their special event on 15 June with plenty of wine and food for the whole family – shiraz is the main event!
