We got a late start yesterday on biking through to the many wineries in this area.
First stop was the Lanzerac Winery. The first to bottle South Africa's famous Pinotage grape in 1961, the winery is accessed down a long driveway lined with vines with views of the mountains behind. Started in the 17th Century, this vinyard is well worth visiting. We tasted 5 red wines, all were delicious. I preferred the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon and Daniel chose the Pinotage as his favorite.
Marcelle, the proprietress of this spectacular estate treated us to a delicious trio of wines. First a Chardonnay with citrus notes, next two fabulous reds - a blend and then a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon. Luckily we are only getting small samples of these beauties and thus can drive home on our bikes always remembering to keep to our left.
