Three smooth red wines to go perfectly with your feast
Shorter days and longer, cooler nights mean it’s time to savour some heart-warming red wines
WINE FOR GOOD
SAAM pinotage 2020
This is a feel-good wine. Apart from the attractive eye-catching label, this Perdeberg Cellar red is Fairtrade-certified, which ensures their vineyard workers and families benefit from community projects and their producers are sustainable too. Easy on the palate, there are aromas of dark berries with mocha undertones and smooth tannins, which make it great for robust meats like game and lamb, and cuts the richness of duck perfectly.
Roodeberg Classic Red 2020
A well-known red blend of varieties including cabernet sauvignon, shiraz, petit verdot and tannat gives aromatic layers of red and dark fruit with hints of sweet spice and dark chocolate. A perfect Easter food accompaniment, this easy-drinking wine works well with roasts, braais and slow-cooked meats.
Windmeul pinotage 2019, The Legend Collection
This premium wine is a “best barrels selection of pinotage” inspired by late veteran Springbok rugby wing and former Windmeul director Theuns Briers. Smooth on the palate, it is well rounded with ripe tannins that retain the flavour and complement any meat dish perfectly.
