Wine Menu, one of Johannesburg’s leading boutique wine outlets has created a hunger for exploring different varieties following their successful wine tasting festivals this year which included a Chardonnay and Pinot Noir event held earlier this year and The Unusuals Festival which was held in August.
For the month of November, Wine Menu’s Corlien Morris has chosen to focus on Cinsaut, in order to give interested customers the opportunity to not only taste this varietal, but also to meet three of South Africa’s esteemed winemakers to discuss, explore and answer questions and we all know how much I love asking ALL the questions.
The three winemakers include Ian Naudé (Adoro Wines), Francois Haasbroek (Blackwater Wine) and Duncan Savage (Savage Wines), all of whom are making Cinsaut in the same cellar, and feeding off each other’s knowledge and experience.
After the Cinsaut tasting there will be a casual tasting of the other wines on offer from these winemakers as well as the opportunity to buy their wines just in time for the holiday season. I cannot wait to stock up.
The Wine Menu Cinsaut Evening will take place at Rosebank’s Clico Boutique Hotel on Wednesday, November 9 at 18.00 for 18.30. Cost is R160 per person. Seating is limited so early booking is essential to avoid disappointment. Contact Corlien Morris on 011 440-5498 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org
