I despise the current prohibition imposed by the Soviet-inspired Command Council in South Africa. This podcast is not intended to annoy those of us who are fast running out of booze, and are prohibited from buying any more.
Our intention, instead, is to serve as a reminder of a time when a group of chums could get together and relish a few glasses of the red stuff.
Michael Olivier, sommelier to the stars, poured out the Bonnievale Limited Release Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 to a receptive bunch.
Guest tasters were analyst Chris Gilmour, brander Jeremy Sampson, and technical supremo Malcolm MacDonald.
We also chatted about the merits of online purchasing, a pleasure allowed in SA at the moment unless you want to buy booze and ciggies.
