Summer is a time for sharing cherished moments with loved ones around the braai – a true South African tradition synonymous with Roodeberg.
This legendary wine has been bringing friends and families together for over seven decades with a lifetime of stories in every bottle. While Roodeberg has grown in stature with a collection of accomplished blends since its first release in 1949, the wine remains rooted in history and continues to conjure up treasured memories with its legacy of outstanding quality and consistent drinking pleasure.
Inspired by Roodeberg’s provenance and journey as an evolving contemporary wine, well-known food writer, Ilse van der Merwe, suggests a deliciously succulent, deboned pork neck for the festive summer table. While all Roodeberg’s red wines are tailor-made for rich and juicy meat off the coals, winemaker James Ochse loves the award-winning Reserve blend with this flavourful pork neck cooked slowly in a kettle braai. It is smoky, tender and simply delicious.
Suave and ultra-smooth, Roodeberg Reserve 2020 triumphed with a Double Gold medal at this year’s prestigious Veritas Awards. It is an intense, richly layered and superbly balanced blend of the finest barrels in the cellar. Led by Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz with Malbec, Petit Verdot and Petite Sirah in supporting roles, the wine is silky soft with beautifully integrated layers of redcurrants and dark berries. Pleasing smoky nuances of vanilla and sweet spice linger long after the last sip.
Roodeberg is the perfect wine to bring people together over the festive season. For more information and online purchases of Roodeberg’s consummate blends, visit www.roodeberg.com
