So all whole lot of us went to Winex last night. After visiting +15 wine stall thingies, I don’t really recall whether Rupert & Rothschild had more nose than Diemersfontein’s pinotage had more watermelon. I had to consult C and E’s wine notes – they took notes, the big wine nerds – as to what occurred at Winex.
This is what was written therein as time went by:
Elgin Vintners sauvignon blanc: Nice with a rocket salad or light lunch.
Buitenverwachting chenin blanc: fruity, yet tart.
L’Ormorins sauvignon blanc: Nice with summer food. Good crackers.
Du Preez Estate chardonnay: fruity, but not woody. Almost dry.
Blaauwklippen chardonnay: very woody. But whatever.
Boschendal Estate: whatever this was, it tasted like chunder.
Rupert & Rothschild sauvignon Blanc: This is a goodie. Nice one, even if too sfeet [sic] for a sauv.
Rickety Bridge Winery: Chards, chens and shauvs [sic]
Diemersfontein: Told them to say hi to my godfather (This is C). Served choccy and nougat with the pinotage, told everyone.
Cloot chardonnay: Can’t taste, but sure it’s fdine. [sic]
Makro: Makro has a stall here wahahahahahahahahahaha
Constantia Uitsig: Tastes like poen. Nik Nkas [sic] were distilled in this.
Groot Constantia: Nice. Briilanit [sic.]
Paull Cluver: You little biscuit!
Then I drove home, earlier than everyone else as I had work to do. I actually worked, through a wined-up haze and exhaustion. Had I crashed into a wall, the wall would’ve won.
The Ant left for a two weeker in Mozambique today. The house is going to be very quiet.
