What a game the semi-final was on Saturday night – tense stuff! Well done to our Boks!!! To show our support for the Springboks and to help us all share in the festivities and excitement of the final, we have put together a “local is lekker”
BOK SUPPORTER MIXED CASE.
We have selected a case of some of our favourite legends that will be delivered before Saturday’s final, to be enjoyed while we all support the Bokke and create the gees on Saturday evening. Each wine selected comes with a quirk and braai recommendation!
Alheit Vineyards ǀ Hereafter Here ǀ 2022 ǀ 100% Chenin Blanc ǀ x 1 bottle
Because “year after year” our team does us proud. This wine is a good pairing with a chicken kebab off the braai or as a pre-match drink to calm those jitters before kick-off.
David & Nadia ǀ Aristargos ǀ 2022 ǀ 47% Chenin blanc, 11% Sémillon, 9% Verdelho, 7% Clairette blanche, 7% Roussanne, 6% Grenache blanc, 6% Marsanne, 5% Colombar and 2% Viognier ǀ x 1 bottle
The Aristargos is a blend of many varietals and a great example of how the right blend can produce something great. Pretty much like the Bokke who are a great team and much like our Bok supporters, “Stronger Together”! The wine pairs well with a Weber chicken or a light pork cut on the braai.
Keermont Vineyards ǀ Syrah ǀ 2017 ǀ 100% Syrah ǀ x 1 bottle
The explosive bouquet and full palate represent the Springbok team’s intensity and endurance. Lamb chops braaied to perfection will be a very good match.
Rall Wines ǀ Red ǀ 2021 ǀ 78% Syrah, 13% Grenache, 7% Carignan and 2% Cinsault
ǀ x 1 bottle
Donovan Rall’s height make us think of Eben Etzebeth. Donovan may be the gentle giant – but we need Eben to be the opposite in the final and bring his best game! This powerful red blend will be great with a chargrilled steak.
BLANKbottle ǀ Retirement @ 65 ǀ 2022 ǀ 44% Shiraz, 56% Cinsault ǀ x 1 bottle
For a bit of tongue and cheek, we know we can finish as the night’s winners! This wine paired with a crispy pork rasher or lamb rib will be a winner.
Colmant ǀ MCC Brut Rosé ǀ NV ǀ 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay ǀ x 1 bottle
Of course, we couldn’t leave out the bubbles for the celebrations!
Enjoy this on its own!
