Mooiplaas “Langtafel” Red, 2010

4/5 $9.99

Try saying that name 3 times fast! In all seriousness, this was quite a surprisingly good wine to taste. The Red is a blend of Cab, Merlot, and Syrah from South Africa and I highly encourage you all to pick up a bottle (they also have a White, which I have not tried). The Mooiplaas vineyard is family own and run since 1806, and fun fact, “Langtafel” means “long table.” Guessing the idea behind this, is that these wines should be shared with a group at a… long table. Well, go ahead and share away, with hints of ripe fruit, smoke, and a smidge of oak, it is a very easy drinking wine with complexity. Feel free to pair it with some grilled meat and have a party!

Advertising professional by day and wine drinker by night, often overwhelmed by the sheer choices in wine stores, I have a tendency to not drink the same wine twice. My biggest tip to all Amateur winos, never swirl the glass in your hand, you just look pretentious. Swirl it on the table and you'll never worry again about that favorite sweater having a big red wine stain on it.
