Red or white, you’ll feel just right with Polkadraai by Stellenbosch Hills

Turn up the mood with Polkadraai – the funky Stellenbosch Hills range that has just added two brand new editions in its portfolio: the 2017 Polkadraai Pinotage/Merlot and the 2018 Polkadraai Chenin Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc.

Nederburg’s The Red Table restaurant, situated in the Paarl winery’s historic manor house, will be serving up a heart-warming winter feast of meat and spice, prepared by talented chef Edmore Ruzoza and his team, during Seven Days of Shiraz & Venison at Nederburg from 11 to 17 June.

Winter is here, and the best part is that Franschhoek is #OpenForWinter. Brave the cold weather and head to the Franschhoek Motor Museum, L’Ormarins Estate for an old favourite, Franschhoek Winter Wines.

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.
