... and ... the winning wine for Weekly Winners is .....

Bottled exclusively for Woolworths and only 1300 cases made (I've bought ... umm ... quite a few so far!!) - blend of Shiraz which vines originate in France and Grenache grape produced on 50 years old vines which origins are in Spain.

Shiraz/Grenache blend "shows a finely balanced structure and a delicious spice ripe-fruit character. Best enjoyed within 3 years ...." Oh ... OK ... so I need to drink it quickly 'cos it's a few years out but it still tastes yumm!

PS - I am NOT alcoholic ... I just love wine!!

Oh yes - not only are the Ken Forrester wines great ... the restaurant - 96 Winery Road, Stellenbosch is superb. Voted in the National Top 10 restaurants .... a-n-d ... my niece is one of the managers!!
