In an interview, Master Sommelier Alpana Singh, told Business Insider that, Natural wine, which is made with little to no preservatives or chemicals, creates what Singh calls a "sometimes fizzy" drink that smells "weird." More specifically, "like a barn yard." Hehe.

Aaah.. the smells of the farm and the array of bouquets.. :) Well not quite the barnyard but it does take some getting used to in my opinion.

Just goes to show that more isn't always better. The Cape Town (and South Africa) has had it's fair share of harsh weather and drought conditions recently but despite this all some excellent wines might be the result.

Save the date for this year’s Shiraz & Charcuterie Festival, which takes place once again at the picturesque Anthonij Rupert Wyne on Saturday, 26 May (11am to 4pm). This highlight on the annual Franschhoek Wine Valley calendar makes for the ideal late Autumn outing, combining some of South Africa’s finest Shiraz wines with delicious charcuterie from artisanal producers.
