I recently enjoyed a glass of 2005 Dalla Cia which is a beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon from the Stellenbosch region.
The label aptly describes the taste :
“A bouquet of blueberries and cigar box with hints of spicy and gaminess. Full bodied in structure and complimentary to all red meats.”
It is important to make sure that a red’s drinking temperature is between 16 and 18 degrees centigrade. This means that, because of the warmth of our South African climate, you may need to keep a red wine in a cooler or fridge for a while before serving.
I believe in the saying that “a day without wine is like a day without sunshine”. A glass of wine adds beauty to an ordinary day.
