Escape to the Cape

southafricavineyardTues-Thurs Tasting
Aug 18-20

This week we go on a tasting safari to the Southern Cape of South Africa with 3 new wines from the region. Featuring:

  • Thirst Cinsault, Stellenbosch – Falling between a red and a rosé, this elegant red is best served slightly chilled to highlight the fruit flavors of cranberry and tart plum balanced with an elegant minerality and stony notes. $27 btl, $9 btg
  • Winery of Good Hope Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch – A leader in socially responsible (and delicious!) winemaking, this Bush Vine Chenin Blanc benefits from staggered harvesting (picked at different levels of ripeness) to create a fruit-filled complex white with flavors of green apple, white peach, gooseberry and a racy finish. $16 btl, $8 btg
  • Douglas Green Cab, Western Cape – One of the groundbreakers in bringing South African wines to the  global market, Douglas Green began making easy-drinking, affordable wines more than 80 years ago and this Cab exemplifies his style: intense fruit flavors of blackberry and black currant with a soft touch of smoke and oak in medium bodied summer red. $13 btl, $6 btg

Tasting:  $14

Paired with Boerewors Sausage Flatbread & Monkey Gland Sauce  – don’t worry, no monkeys were harmed in the process! — $7
