Let’s celebrate Valentine’s Day! If for no other reason than it’s perfectly acceptable to drink bubbly all day long on the 14th! We’ll be indulging in some of our favourite bubbles: Krone Vintage Rose Cuvee Brut 2015 – refreshing and sophisticated and just a little bit sassy. Perfect served with sushi or seared salmon, prosciutto or duck (between R110 and R120 at your local wine store); and Pierre Jourdan Belle Rose. Superbly elegant in style, and the relatively low alcohol level makes it ideal for enjoying all day and well into the night. Packed with strawberry and redcurrant flavours, it is wonderful with scallops (around R100 a bottle).
