South Africa Wine Tasting

Knysna, December 7, 2014

The annual Ordre Mondial ‘members only’ tasting, which I present in the wine cellar at my home, this year had Gewürztraminer as the theme.

We tasted 15 different wines from Austria, Alsace and South Africa, with the oldest being a 1989 Blanck Sélection de Grains Nobles from Alsace.

Bailli Délégué François Ferreira prepared delicious ‘nibbles’ which we enjoyed with each flight of wines.

To have the opportunity to sample the same grape variety from three countries was both educational and enjoyable.
