South African ‘Rhone’

DANCING WITH THE WOLVES ““ SOUTH AFRICAN EDITION OF THE RHONE RED

wolftrapHere’s one for all you fans of heft. A big red for the beef! As with most South African reds it feels quite dry, and earthy ““ along with a slightly smoky flavor. The experience of hanging around the BBQ as the meat smells excite your senses. Open the bottle a few hours ahead for an extra hit of delicious spicy/fruitiness. A Rhone meets Aussie experience.

P.S. No wolves have been seen or trapped at this winery. Despite the fears of the~  original settlers who set traps.

P.S. Boekenhoutskloof~  (just rolls off the tongue!) also produce a white Rhone blend ““ Viognier and Grenache Blanc, with the addition of Chenin Blanc. Rich and slightly sweet it feels a bit like a Chardonnay. A shade too pretty for me. Best with spicy/savoury foods.
