I really enjoy your write-ups Kim, and I’ve learnt so much about wine from you that I didn’t know before. I love the way you also mention your favourite dishes and the melkkos looks and sounds so good! Thanks and I look forward to more of your great blogs!

Kim, Keep up the wine blogs! Here are a few of our favorite South African Bordeaux Blends – I’m sure you have most of them 😉

Meerlust “Rubicon”
Hartenberg Estate “The McKenzie”
De Toren “Fusion V”
Rustenberg “John X. Merriman”
Ernie Els “Proprietor’s Blend”
