It’s International Pinot Noir Day & that means 5% OFF selected Pinot Noirs @ our Hoedspruit location! 🍷
In case you are not too sure whether Pinot Noir is for you, let us convince you otherwise:
🍇Pinot noir is a black wine grape variety associated with some of the world’s most expensive still and sparkling wines. For instance, Blanc de Noirs Champagne uses Pinot Noir (& Pinot Meunier) as its base grape.
🇿🇦 Pinot Noir is one of the foundational varietals of all-time South African favourite, Pinotage! Back in 1925, scientist Abraham Perold observed how SA Pinot Noir struggled (being vintage-sensitive, thin-skinned and prone to disease), so he crossed it with Cinsault to create a much more productive varietal. Nowadays however, South African wineries are rapidly catching up to Old World producers, and are creating some beautiful Pinot Noir wines!
🌊Pinot Noir vines tend to prefer more intermediate climates with long, cool growing seasons. You’ll often find it growing best in protected valleys or near large bodies of water, like the Hemel-en-Aarde & Elgin regions.
👅Because Pinot Noir is such a sensitive varietal, the wines are often a pure expression of their terroir! In younger wines, you can taste red fruits, such as raspberries, plums, cranberries and cherries. As the wine ages, they often develop earthy notes, with hints of truffles, wild mushrooms, cured meat and exotic spices.
🦆These tasting notes, together with higher acidity & lower tannins, make Pinot Noir a very versatile food pairing wine. Try it with with duck, chicken, pork, and mushroom dishes, and you may well be converted for life!

Want to see for yourself what South African Pinot Noir has to offer? Between La Brune Wines' Pinot Noir, Creation Wines' Reserve Pinot Noir & Oak Wine Valley' Groenlandberg Pinot Noir - we think you might just discover some new favourites!

Nederburg Wines was the first to plant it around 10 years ago, the Newton Johnson Wines family harvested their first crop in 2013 - yielding the first eight litres of Albariño wine in South Africa. Since then, this Iberian varietal is gaining in popularity quickly!

Here’s a quick breakdown of what to expect:
🍑 Aromas of nectarine, lime, and grapefruit, with subtle hints of honeysuckle and occasionally beeswax.
🌊Weighty mid-palate and mouth-watering acidity that finishes with salinity and sometimes a subtle bitter note (like green almond or citrus pith).
🐠A friend to all things from the sea, Albariño pairs exceptionally well with white fish and meats as well as leafy green herbs. Fish tacos are THE perfect match!

With it’s redolent and full-bodied mouthfeel, apricot, nectarine and floral aromas, saline minerality and bright acidity, @springfieldestate ’s Albariño is becoming a firm favourite at Safari Wines! Why not pick up a bottle tomorrow & give it a try! 🥂

International Rosé Day! In normal times, you’d be able to spot café tables adorned by 25cl carafes of rosé wine being shared over lunch across southern France, from Provence and the Côte d’Azur in the south-east to Languedoc-Roussillon (now Occitanie) further west. Want to recreate the same feeling at home? Try some of our favourite ones, some of them even work beautifully with light meals, like sushi, grilled salmon or even chicken sosaties!
🍉 Kleinood Katharien Rose explodes with a fresh berry mix aroma, melon, watermelon, pomegranate and spice. Perfect on its own or with fresh & light dishes;
🍓 Zorgvliet Wines Cabernet Franc Rosé is a delicate and dry rosé to accompany you on hot summers days. Crisp on the entry but rounded in the mid palate with an explosion of red berry flavours on the finish. We are lucky enough to have some of the last 2018 vintage in stock!
🍒 Elgin Vintners Belle Amie tastes exactly like the name! Lovely red fruits dancing on your palate with fresh strawberries, pomegranate and summer red cherries.

It is international #DrinkChenin Day tomorrow! Pick up your bottle TODAY (bottle stores are closed from tomorrow until Monday!), so you can enter the photo contest organised by the Chenin Blanc Association: the best 3 consumer photos of the celebration of CHENIN and SUSHI, uploaded on 18 June will EACH win 3 mixed cases (36 bottles) of Chenin Blanc wines!

Chenin Blanc is somewhat of a shape-shifter amongst white varietals, with its huge diversity originating from different winemaking styles. Over 50% of the world’s Chenin vineyards are located in South Africa!
🍐Dry: When the grapes are fermented dry and kept fresh, they produce a very lean, mineral-style Chenin Blanc that offers up flavours of tart pear, quince, ginger, and chamomile.
🍯Off-Dry: When some of the grapes’ natural sugars are left in the wine, you’ll taste richer flavours of ripe pear, ginger, jasmine, passion fruit, and honeycomb.
🥭Sweet: Sweeter styles of Chenin Blanc have flavours of dried persimmon, toasted almond, mango, ginger, and mandarin orange.
🪵Oak: like Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc can also be oaked, in which case you may pick up aromas & flavours of buttered popcorn, butterscotch, lemon curd, nutmeg, baked apple, graham cracker, meringue, marzipan, and brioche.
🌸Sparkling: Sparkling styles can range from dry (Brut) to sweet (Demi-Sec), with Chenin Blanc’s classic characteristics of quince, yellow apple, plum, ginger, and floral notes.

5 facts you need to know about Chardonnay:
⛰ The most widely planted white varietal worldwide, Chardonnay originates from the Burgundy region in France, with Montrachet, Meursault, Pouilly-Fuissé and Chablis as some of the most famous appellations. The name originally meant “place of thistles”.
🍾 Chardonnay is one of the three main grapes used in Champagne, along with Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The ultimate (according to most) Champagne however, is made from 100% Chardonnay and is called Blanc De Blanc.
🪵 The varietal is known amongst wine makers as “the red of whites”. This is because Chardonnay lends itself beautifully to barrel and malolactic fermentation, much like most red varietals.
🥥 Chardonnay aged in American oak often has a coconut-ty quality to it, whereas French oak imparts a characteristic vanilla aroma.
🍋 South African Chardonnay’s used to emphasise heavier, oaked styles, but has been developing more & more towards a fresher, unoaked and more citrus forward-style - perfect for drinking on its own!

Some tasting notes:
👁 The appearance can vary from very pale to a deep golden colour
👃& 👅 Oaked Chardonnays are creamy, rich, toasty, full-bodied and often have additional oak-aged flavours of vanilla, baking spices, or butter. Fruit flavours range from tropical (think pineapple or mango) in warm climate regions, to leaner, green apple and citrus in cooler climates. Unoaked Chardonnays are fresher, citrus-driving (lemon, lime), more zippy with a mineral acidity but without the green, herby flavours that you tend to find in Sauvignon Blanc.

Are you a Chardonnay fan, or keen to give it a go?
🛍 You should! Come explore our extensive range of Chardonnay, one of the largest in the Lowveld! If you are a fan of the fresher style, try the Eikendal Janina or the The Valley Chardonnay. For the old-school fans, the Hartenberg Chardonnay was a firm favourite in last month’s wine tasting!

It's Sauvignon Blanc Day, here's 5 surprising facts:
⛰The name is thought to originate from the french word “sauvage,” meaning “wild”, due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France.
🍇Sauvignon Blanc is a parent varietal of Cabernet Sauvignon - together with Cabernet Franc.
🌱The “green” aromatics in Sauvignon Blanc come from compounds called methoxypyrazines. Cabernet Sauvignon also has these same flavours (it runs in the family!)
🇨🇱 Until the 1980s, most of the “Sauvignon Blanc” in Chile turned out to be rarer Sauvignon Vert (aka Sauvignonasse), mistakenly brought over from Bordeaux.
🙀 A real tasting note for Sauvignon is “cat pee” Caused by a unique chemical compound, “4MMP”, there aren’t many other scents like it!

Some tasting notes:
👃 pungent, in-your-face aromas ranging from freshly cut grass, peas and asparagus, to tropical and ripe passion fruit, grapefruit, or even mango.
👅 On the palate, light bodied with racy acidity and moderate alcohol. South African Sauvignon Blanc often has tropical fruit flavours that carry through from the nose - which is why it is loved by so many!
🪵 Occasionally, Sauvignon Blanc is aged in Oak - sometimes called Fumé Blanc. This rounded, more lush style offers more creamy or waxy aromatics and an oily feeling on the palate. Wines made in this way are often blended with bolder Sémillon.

Are you a Sauvignon Blanc fan?
🛍 We are! Our Game Drive wine is a Sauvignon Blanc from the Hemel-en-Aarde region and a true expression of South African Sauvignon Blanc - as R10 per bottle sold, goes to wildlife conservation. Shop here: https://www.safariwines.co.za/
