Cape Town – With the return of Cape Wine this year, the magnificent twelve producers under the PIWOSA umbrella are partnering with SASA to showcase the incredibly diverse and exciting varieties of wines they produce. Together they have organised six unique, fun, and exciting tastings throughout the three days of Cape Wine 2022.
Come by and meet the PIWOSA members along with the team from SASA at Stand A8 at the Cape Town Convention Centre, in Cape Town, between the 5th and 7th of October 2022.
The tastings will be guided by a SASA Sommelier and include selected wines from Avondale, De Grendal, The Drift, Glenelly, Jordan, Journey’s End, Ken Forrester, Klein Constantia, Paul Cluver, Raats, Radford Dale, and Springfield.
The tasting themes you can enjoy are as follows:
SITE SPECIFIC: We will be showcasing the impact of the site on wine, highlighting the diversity of the various wine regions.
WEIRD & WONDERFUL: Within the PIWOSA stable, numerous unusual and lesser-known varietals are available. It is an excellent opportunity to showcase these unique varieties and to use our knowledge as sommeliers to help you understand them better.
SHINING STARS: Some of the most highly sought-after wines in South Africa are in the PIWOSA stable. This tasting highlights a selection of wines awarded 95 points plus by Tim Atkin and John Platter’s five stars.
FAIRYTALES: Every wine has a story, but some are cooler than others. Often that can be the swing factor between choosing one over another. PIWOSA wines have incredible stories, and it is our job as a sommelier to tell the stories of wines.
EVOLUTION: How do wines develop… Far too many people drink wine too young, and the opportunity to taste wine in evolution is rare. This educational tasting showcases wine at its optimum drinking window.
OF COURSE, SIZE MATTERS: A tasting of wines in magnum (1.5L) vs standard (750ml) bottles. Magnums are ideal for ageing the finest wines. The lower air-to-liquid ratio lengthens the maturation process, giving flavours more time to develop. Can you taste the difference?
We look forward to welcoming you to the PIWOSA stand to taste through the themes over the three days of Cape Wine 2022.
