The 2020 harvest has been interesting and relatively unpredictable in most areas despite most soil moisture conditions being a lot better. Despite the excellent rains we received in 2019 some areas like Tulbagh for instance, reported lower rainfall yet most dams managed to fill nicely. The weather during harvest season, which started early January, has seen cooler picking conditions with higher yields and reports of excellent quality fruit which bodes for a good vintage overall!
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Thelma’s Chocolate Cake. We have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with excellent daily tastings from well-known and newer estates. Please visit our website www.wineconcepts.co.za for details on our tastings and upcoming events at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.
