Wine Tasting: A tour of South Africa

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Members of the Wine tasting group visited Wine Time at Scatchards last evening for the latest foray into experiencing wines from different wine producing areas of the world. It was lovely to see several new U3A members who joined us for the outing. This time we sampled 6 wines from South Africa, including a red which apparently is never sold in SA as the British market takes 95% of its stock! Having quaffed samples of 2 whites, a rose and 3 reds accompanied by cheese, meats and olives, the conversation flowed as easily as the wine. Thanks once again to George and Mo for organising the tasting and providing the nibbles. I wonder where our next sampling will take us?
