Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society.
What better way to lavish praise on the most special woman known as Mom, Mother, Ma, Mamma or Moeksie in your life than to enjoy a good bottle of wine with her!
We suggest these wines for Mother’s Day:
De Toren Private Cellar – La Jeunesse Delicate
Name means youthful, light & delicate in French
A lighter style of red wine that offers all juicy red berry fruit flavours of
traditional red wine, but with none of the heaviness & dry tannins
Red wine for white wine drinkers.
Rainbow’s End Wine Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2013
Banghoek has always been know for good Cab Sauvignon’s.
We pick the Cab Sauv right at the end of harvest. A slow ripening allows for an optimal ripeness in the wine and yet a low alcohol level.
The 2013 vintage has the perfect balance between old and new world styles, and the tannin structure is bold enough to carry the wine’s characteristic Blackcurrant and cassis hints.
Le Pommier Wine Estate – Sauvignon Blanc 2015
Pale green with light straw hues on the colour. The nose is laden with gooseberry and tropical fruit. The palate shows lime, citrus and gooseberry fruit with a flinty, mineral finish.
Ageing potential: 1 – 2 years
Zorgvliet Wine Estate Cabernet Franc 2012
A Succulent Cabernet Franc that is elegance personified. The wine shows cinnamon and spice characteristics on the nose, which integrates well with flavours of black cherry and plum fruit on the palate. An elegant tannin structure gives way to a distinct minerality on the finish.
Le Pommier Wine Estate – Jonathan’s Malbec 2013
Perfumed notes on the nose, give way to rich mulberry and dark cherry tones on the palate. The wine shows full but finely structured tannins, which although restrained now will reward well with a couple of years of bottle maturation.
Zorgvliet Wine Estate Natural Sweet Sauvignon Blanc 2010
Honey tones on the nose, lead to a melange of golden apples and glazed pineapple fruit backed by balanced citrus fruit on the palate; deliciously sweet but clean on the finish. This wine will develop complexity in the next couple of years from bottle maturation.
Le Pommier Wine Estate – Rosé
Gentle pink salmon colour. The wine shows red currant and tropical fruit that follows through on the palate, all balanced by good acidity. This is a refreshing summer drink.
