Zalze Shiraz/Mourvedre/Viognier 2009
Thanks to their flavor and finesse, a couple of sips can transport you to a terrace looking out over the bay and Table Mountain - with or without a big screen.
From the famous Stellenbosch region in the heart of the Winelands (the annual Stellenbosch Wine Festival takes place July 1-4), try the great value Zalze Shiraz/Mourvedre/Viognier 2009, (£6.49, Waitrose), winner of the Decanter World Wine Awards 2010 trophy for Rhone varietal from South Africa under £10. A well-rounded blend with plenty of sweet blackberry glossy fruit and a silky long, velvety finish.
On the banks of the Eerste River with sweeping views of the surrounding Helderberg Mountains, Spier Wine Estate offers visitors a lifestyle experience when they check into this luxury hotel with all the usual four-star trappings: an art collection, Cheetah Outreach Center and golf course.
