In wine.co.za’s latest newsletter Graham Howe goes SA Wine-spotting in Ireland.
We’ll give it to those big drinking Irish, they have some good taste as Graham found our Secateurs Chenin twice while out and about.
1. “When travelling abroad, I always enjoy wine-spotting South Africa. The extensive wine-list by the glass and bottle at Nick’s Warehouse in the bohemian cathedral quarter of Belfast highlighted new listings of Kaapzicht’s Cape Diversity Chardonnay 2010 (at R60 a glass) as “a great example of un-oaked Chardonnay” – as well as Adi Badenhorst’s Secateurs Chenin Blanc and Cape Classics Chenin.”
2. “At Deanes – under Michael Deane, one of Ireland’s top Michelin chefs – I spotted Adi Badenhorst’s Secateurs Chenin Blanc (R350) on the blackboard as the preferred partner for seafood – and Boekenhoutskloof Wolftrap Red (R350) for meatier fare.
