8 Wine Picks for Dad

1. Leopard's Leap Lookout Cape Leopard Mountain Red 2021

A full-bodied red wine, paired with a fine berry aroma and a delicate scent of spices and cedarwood.

2. Darling Cellars Reserve Black Granite Shiraz 2022

This is a remarkable Shiraz with an expressive nose and great complexity. A medium-bodied wine with a plush structure and fruit following onto your palate with a lingering aftertaste.

3. Du Toitskloof Hanepoot Jerepigo

A shimmering, brassy gold Jerepigo with a concentrated mass of citrus fruit, intriguing botrytis hints, turning to chocolate orange liqueur on a silky palate. Exceptionally long, fruity aftertaste.

4. Beyerskloof Pinotage 2022

Strong plum flavours with velvety tannins. Well structured, yet elegant and soft, medium-bodied with a fresh and superbly balanced finish.

5. Bellingham The Homestead Red Blend 2020

The wine has good intensity and is structured, yet has a rounded palate that is perfectly balanced. Ripe tannin imparts a good drinkability that offers a broad appeal that finishes integrated and silky with lingering dark berry fruits.

6. Brookdale Mason Road Syrah 2023

The palate of this Syrah displays layers of berry fruit with spices of pepper, cinnamon, and clove. A soft and sultry entry on the palate is supported with supple tannins and finishes with impressive length and bright acidity.

7. De Wetshof Bon Vallon Chardonnay 2023

An unwooded Chardonnay, Bon Vallon has a clean freshness leading into a wide spectrum of classic flavours including citrus, wildflowers, and nuts, with a nuanced minerality on the aftertaste.

8. Alvi's Drift Reserve Drift Fusion 2019

Multiple layers on the nose of ripe blackberries, plums, dark chocolate, and tobacco, with hints of spice and vanilla. Superior integration of the structural elements produces a velvety, viscous wine.
