RMB WineX 2017: Our Picks For This Summer
By SK & LT | 7 November 2017
Another successful year of our favourite lifestyle event and we have no complaints except…more wine, please. We have grown in knowledge since our first appearance at the annual WineX so this year we have decided to share our top wine picks to be gulping through the summer heat.
We anticipated the 25th of October like our lives depended on it…well our palates certainly did. Three years into our wine journey with WineX we can officially call ourselves amateur sommeliers and professional wine consumers. The 2017 edition of WineX was nothing short of extraordinary.
First off, we must commend the organisers for the incredible layout as compared to previous years. The groupings worked well and they allowed sufficient space through the walkways as well as not to even think about skipping a section.
Secondly, it is always great to see new names, flavours and international wines we would not normally be exposed to …especially here in Johannesburg. A well-balanced variety of novel wines was available for tastes and of course to be taken home.
And lastly, as we were true wine nerds this year by ticking off and writing our selections, here are our top summer wines we think your wine cellars and shopping lists deserve. We focused on light, fresh, fruity, crisp, semi-sweet wines. Of course, there is champagne involved! Brut or Rose, we think you will enjoy these (in no particular order or preference):
