In all honesty, these December days are the ones we have been dreaming about all year.
Sipping something decadent while a playful breeze twirls itself around your hair is the dream we have all had throughout the year. Well, the time is now and the drink is the already legendary Simonsig Chenin Blanc.
Simonsig is the first winery ever to win the much sought-after Platters Super-quaffer of the year award with the same wine for two consecutive years, a laudable fact that is completely understandable because the fruity flavour threesome of guava, pineapple and melon is glorious.
It has a refreshing light colour with a hint of green and leaves you with a wild honey aftertaste that will leave you wanting more. Try it with fresh seafood, curry or even some spicy Thai food.
Retailing for R32, it topped 300 "ultra-easy-sippers" as best value for money wine in the 2009 edition. What excuse could you possibly have? Grab a bottle and let's live the dream.
