While the long arm of PC Plod may prevent wine tastings in St. George’s Mall, they cannot touch us in the sanctuary of the Taj Hotel. Here Winnie Bowman, Tom Magara and Karin Visser put 47 RECM Chardonnays through their paces this morning.

It’s a busy time for the SAP at the minute: collecting Shrien Dewani from his private jet at Cape Town International and rubber necking Oscar Pistorius at the Pretoria spectacle. Perhaps we need to recruit a Police Panel to take wine tasting to the Next Level. Goodbye fokofpolisiekar, hello fokofpolisiebar.

The 47 Chardonnays will be available for tasting at the Pendock Wine Gallery @ Taj from 5-7pm this evening. Don’t be late as 39 Aussies are threatening to pitch if they get back from Robben Island in time.
