Wine of the week: Solms-Delta Africana 2008


Tie me up and dry me out,
that’s what this wine’s all about.
When clamped to the vine,
the grapes starts to shine.
Aromatic on the nose,
filled with flowers like a rose.
Dramatic on the taste,
makes no sip go to waste.
One sip of Africana,
and your taste buds will lambada!

Winemaker Hilko Hegewisch is responsible for this wonderfully produce wine which could not have been possible without the help of Viticulturist, Paul Wallace. A truly interesting wine that will captivate your taste-buds till the last drop. Africana retails at around R174 a bottle and you can read more about the wine here.
