A tasting at Rhebokskloof

The tasting room entrance, almost hidden, round a corner
Inside it is very comfortable and warm
Some of the wines we tasted. Henrico was very generous when he saw how interested we were and we tasted many more. We particularly liked the 2010 Semillon, clearing from the cellar at R40. Herbaceous and exciting, salty citrus with figs and a nice acid sugar balance. We bought a case of this and a case of the 2012 MGS (Mourvedre, Grenache, Shiraz) which is savoury, meaty, with violets and smoke and full of fruit. Its slightly salty palate is smooth & sprinkled with marmite on the juicy mulberry fruit & some pepper from the Shiraz. A bargain at R100.
The MCC, made from chardonnay, has had three years on the lees. A subdued mousse, but rich deep flavour with a classic bready nose
Henrico is very good at his job. We encourage you to go and visit and experience his expertise and the wines
Tasting red wines and enjoying the cheese and charcuterie platters. The end of a wonderful relaxing weekend
