Winter has arrived in Cape Town and it’s our favourite season to enjoy our red wines and ports. Note that we visit many wine estates on our wine tours around Cape Town, and a red is always on the menu at every estate. Here are some of our favourite winter wines:

Mitre’s Edge: 2018 Malbec: A firm favourite at this wine estate (R295.00)

Lovane: Cabernet Sauvignon: The wine has a dark ruby colour and flavours of blackberries, dark cherries and plum (R160)

Mitre’s Edge: Merlot 2018: A rich, delicious wine that is easy drinking and absolutely perfect for winter (R235)

Middlevlei: Shiraz: The pepper, plum and liquorice aromas mingled with hints of violets, vanilla and cherries, playfully enchant the palate (R1080 a case)

Lovane: Cape Ruby Port 2017: The perfect balance between alcohol and sweetness makes this a great dessert wine that can be enjoyed with dark chocolate or cheese (R185)

Don’t forget to come on one of our wine tours soon! We visit up to 5 wine estates a day with over 25 tastings. Find out more about our super popular wine tours here.
