Day 1 of tour

Unfortunately, neither Penny or I took our phones so no pictures. 🙁 Kathy Van Zyl is our Tour Guide and she shared some of her extensive knowledge on South African wines. She has spent time in most wine producing countries so her knowledge is immense.

Along with various appetizers (canapés), we tasted:

A Bubbly (Methode Cap Classique or MCC) – Graham Beck Brut

Sauvignon Blanc – Neil Ellis Groenekloof

Chenin Blanc – Tierhoek

Chardonnay – Constantia Uitsig

Pinot Noir – Iona Mr P

Syrah – Eagles Nest

Pinotage – Southern Right

Cab/Merlot blend – Rupert & Rothschild Classic

A lot of wine and food, so we decided not to do dinner and instead went up to our luxury room and ordered Dessert – me a Malva Pudding (a South African specialty) and Penny had a cheesecake with extra berries. Both delicious (made up for that dieting brunch).
