Excitement is in the air as the Ogier wines arrived in Riebeek today. We might have to wait another three weeks to meet the man and TASTE the wines, but it is surely an indication that the Swartland Revolution is in motion and the time is drawing closer.
Eight of Stephane Ogier’s wines will be tasted during his seminar on Friday 12 November.
1. Saint Joseph Blanc 2008 (100% Marsanne)
2. Condrieu “La combe de Malleval” 2009 (100% Viognier)
3. L’Ame Sœur 2007 (100% Syrah)
