Virtual Tasting

Meet The Winemaker - South Africa

Fri, October 23, 2020 (7:00 PM - 8:30 PM)

Cost: £17.50

October 2020 sees us joining forces with some of our colleagues in the Local Wine School network for a series of online tastings looking at wines from four southern hemisphere countries, Argentina, Australia, South Africa and Chile.

And we’re thrilled that for each session, we’ll be joined by a winery representative who’ll be able to talk us through the wines, tell us about their region and their history, and answer any questions you may have. 

It’s the perfect opportunity to learn about wine from the people who make it in the safety and comfort of your own home, and we’ve put together a mouth-watering line-up.

For Week 4, we'll be exploring wines from the Ken Forrester winery in Stellenbosch, South Africa

Ken Forrester may not single-handedly have revived the fortunes of Chenin Blanc in South Africa, but it’s hard to think of anyone else who has done as much to raise the profile of the country’s most widely planted grape variety. For this tasting, we’ll try two examples of Chenin, then finish off with that Cape speciality Pinotage.

The Wines:

2017 Sparklehorse, Tradional Style Fizz (RRP £22.50)

2019 Old Vine Reserve Chenin Blanc (RRP £14.95)
