Winter is red wine season and a good reason to rediscover Roodeberg, South Africa’s iconic red blend that has been bringing friends together since 1949.
The stuff of legends, this full-bodied red is the perfect fire side quaffer. Roodeberg’s rich heritage and colourful tapestry of wine folklore, has seen this classic Cabernet Sauvignon driven red evolve from the master’s original blend to an accessible, contemporary wine in step with changing tastes and lifestyles.
The current 2016 vintage erupts in your glass with aromatic layers or cranberries, spicy dry herbs and fruitcake with whiffs of cinnamon and dark chocolate. The palate is well rounded with nuances of cedar oak supported by juicy tannins that linger long after the last sip.
A true South African original that has stood the test of time, Roodeberg loves hearty winter stews and roasts and is a perfect fit with your favourite meat on the braai. Chef Mynardt Joubert, who knows a thing or two about local food heritage, shares his Kudu burger recipe as the perfect winter taste partner for Roodeberg. Dads will love this as a Father’s Day treat or round up your friends for a Roodeberg winter red wine reunion.
During June and July, Roodeberg is rewarding wine lovers who purchase this trusted red in leading outlets. There’s the Reunion on Réunion grand prize of a 7-day island adventure of a lifetime, as well as 350 fabulous quality wine accessories supplied by Yuppiechef. Look out for the Roodeberg necktag competition and make sure you get your share of Roodeberg rewards this winter.
Roodeberg red is available country wide and retails at around R85 per bottle. Catch all the action by joining the Roodeberg community on Facebook or follow @Roodeberg_Wine on Instagram and Twitter.
