Pinotage and Braai tasting. 21/05/11.


As the sun shone down in Clapham today we brought a wee bit of South Africa to South West London. 

In conjunction with Nathans Art Shop we held a tasting of various Pinotage, and other wines, along with a braai. A braai being a South African Barbeque.

 Nathan (centre front), being a native of South Africa, came up with the idea of holding a braai at our store whilst promoting his artists work.

 Following on from a successful night in late March, where the store held its first wine and art evening, we realised the combination between the two and let Nathan loose.

 A keen lover of wine and art, Nathan came up with the idea several months ago. He was the first to make us aware of the combination of art and wine, and how it would work in our area and business.

Now to the important bit, the wines. 

The wines available.

All these wines offered something different.

The Fairview was honest and easy to drink. £9.99.

The Good Hope was fresh and organic in its approach. £7.49.

The Spice Route was sublime. Silky on the palate. It is pure silk. Loved it.

The CappuPINOccinoTAGE does have coffee overtones. Really liked this wine.

Hey ho short but sweet tasting notes. Well worth it.

If you pour it they will come?
