Hemel en Aarde
We arrived in South Africa two days ago, now feeling relaxed and refreshed from the overnight flight
It is time to start work!
We are staying with friends in Onrus which is very close to the renowned Wine district of Hemel en Aarde this area has some of South Africa’s most famous vineyards all situated on the one road, we pass Newton Johnson, Hamilton Russell, Creation to name but a few, today we are hunting out wines recommended from our Customers. The first visit today is to Domaine des Dieux and then to search out Alheit.
We wanted to sample Des Dieux Sparkling MCC wines, they were interesting in as much as they are kept on the lees for 4 years and so the vintages being sampled were 2010 and 11, we enjoyed both white and Rosé but the tasting experience could have been better #trainyourstaff #enthusiasm required! Onto the next vineyard just to find you need an appointment to #gowinetasting here, not put off by this we went to the local wine merchant and bought a bottle which we will sample this evening with the #BBQ.
