  • I am currently seeking out some of the better Western Cape wines of S. Africa... for that something different.  However, tonight, after inspecting a new propoerty I purchased on Vancouver Island, I was just to thirsty to look far afield and lighted on this very underrrated wine: Chateau de France 2015.  See review, if interested, on this site.  ...

  • Fleur du Cap Pinotage Bergkelder Selection 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Pours a semi clear garnet/ruby red and coats the inside of the wineglass with an oily film that produces slow moving legs. The aroma is fruit forward, with strawberry and cherry, along with slightly oaked spice, and overall it is smooth on the nostrils. The flavors are also fruit driven (more cherry, strawberry and even blackberry), smooth oak... Read More

  • One of my goals for 2019 was to read more of wine books. It's a resolution to which I've stuck, and more of my recent favorites will be shared with you here in the coming months. Today's selection is Around the World in Eighty Wines by Mike Veseth. Inspired by the Jules Verne classic, Around the World in Eighty Days, Veseth takes us from Algeria... Read More

  • I recently bought this one: https://www.upperwine.com/products/wine-western-cape-south-africa-white-blossom-buiten-gewoon-2017 It's suprisingly good, with a nice and subtle bitterness in it. Made from 100% Chenin Blanc in the Western Cape. Buiten Gewoon also has a red wine, I'll try that one next. Read More

  • A chef recently challenged me to match a wine with Bakewell Tarts, one of England’s favourite cakes. These delicious sweeties have a jam-coated shortcake case filled with sponge, topped with by almond flakes and icing. I luv ‘em. What’s more, Bakewell is a village in Derbyshire not far from my home city of Manchester so, as you can guess, I was ... Read More

  • I tasted through a selection of Chenin Blanc for #CheninBlancDay last June. Right off the bat I knew we had to bring these wines to the Snooth audience.  I was hoping to do it in the winter months for one very good reason: South African Chenin Blanc retains startlingly robust fruits (more than enough to stand up to warming winter dishes), while ...

  • According to the Wine Institute, in 2015, over 28 million liters of wine were produced by sixty-three different wine producing countries. There are currently 195 different countries in our world, which means that a whopping one third of it is making wine. We all cherish our favorite wine countries and regions, but there are some superior wine pr... Read More

  • In case you haven’t heard, June 17th is Chenin Blanc Day. And like so many wine lovers, one of the first places I go for great Chenin Blanc is South Africa. While South Africa is considered part of the New World, at this point, the country’s vines are quite venerable. The first vintage of South African wine was recorded in 1659. Meanwhile, the f...

  • Dont think it wasn't under consideration. Decor = cape cod rustic with an old coal stove purring 24/7 right in the sitting room open to the kitchen and dining room. Stemware = stubby wine glass borrowed from CERN. Sausage consumed solo. One course meal.  Read More
