|Something new… |
We are trying a different mailing program for our Newsletter – please let us know what you think of the layout. When setting it all up we found a few old email contacts from the previous application which we have imported into this one which might explain why you may have suddenly received a Newsletter from us and probably forgot you had given us your e-mail address or subscribed a long time ago! Please feel free to unsubscribe if you do not want to recieve our weekly Newsletters. Thank you for your support over the weekends! Don’t forget that with our On/Off License we are able to open for tastings and sales – with deliveries only after we close the shop. This means that if you come in over the weekend you can buy wine, but cannot immediately take it home with you – but we will deliver to you in Hermanus (free local delivery, obviously). If you live elsewhere, we can arrange to courier the wine to you the following week.
|This weekend’s Tasting. |
This weekend we will be tasting the “Seriously Cool Cinsault” from Waterkloof. Made with fruit from old, dry-farmed bushvines which were planted as far back as 1964, it was naturally fermented and made with minimal intervention. This is a beautifully soft and perfumed wine. Weekend tasting times:
Friday 10am – 4pm | Saturday: 10am – 4pm | Sunday: 10am – 4pm.
|Maredsous Belgian Ale|
|We have previously stocked the imported La Trappe range of Belgian beers but we thought for this year we would try something new – enter the Maredsous Blond and Maredsous Tripel.|
MAREDSOUS BLONDE 6%: This beer is the Abbey’s very first beer; apparently, monks still drink it during their lunch. It has a deep yellow colour, very slightly cloudy topped with a white head. Delicious, it has a cheerful fruity flavour, a soft malting, a slightly dry final touch and is delicately hopped. It has all the refreshing qualities of a classical Belgian blonde thanks to its complex flavours and its touch of bitterness.
MAREDSOUS TRIPLE 10%: A Belgian triple with a gold colour. It is full-flavoured and slightly spicy. It’s flavour is yeast-derived, bitter and fruity with a balanced post-bitterness. Its sweetness contrasts with its alcohol content. It is a delicious strong, sweet and heady beer that will delight the initiated. It contains yeast and is refermented in the bottle.
