Have just looked up this on the website – 2004 bottle was awarded the Decanter South Africa Bordeaux Varietals Trophy for 2008 and the Caylon Trophy for the best Bordeaux blend for 2008. Its a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc matured in French Nevers barrels for 25 months. Yum!
This is the friend – not the bottle .. but the person – who couldn’t make it to our braai/bbq on Friday evening and actually spent the weekend sampling one of our hospitals! Thought he would like to compare it to a hotel room, he said! He has recovered and I knew he would love a dinner of lamb roast with roast potatoes and veggies. I was right! He did enjoy it and for his pud’ – I made his favourite – chocolate eclairs, filled with fresh organic whipped cream (thought I would get the organic as it’s healthier!!!) and topped with chocolatie chocolate !!!
Pssst !! … have a whiff ….
Look .. but don’t touch !!
Mr T …. I will be waiting in anticipation for my ‘red dot’ on South America! I have been amazed, truly amazed, ever since starting my blog a few months ago, at how many ‘hits’ I have got from different corners of the globe! It has been overwhelming and encouraging! Thanks to all of you!! But I now need/would love a ‘red dot’ on South America on my little teeny tiny map! I have told him about my blog so I will be waiting ……. patiently!
