HKWS Back vintage South African wine


Probably one of the few if not the only one back vintage (1970s to 1990s) South African wine tasting in Hong Kong, organised by The Hong Kong Wine Society Gregory De 'Eb. 24 wines in total and most direct from the estates. Nederburg The Winemaster's Cabernet Sauvignon 1974 was the top pick among the reds. Klein Constantia Riesling 1987 and Villiera Charles de Fere Tradition Reserve Brut NV (their first vintage of MCC bottled in the 80s) still have years of life ahead.

A common remark from the table: South African wine can be thaaat good!
