CE­VICHE Mul­der­bosch Caber­net Sau­vi­gnon Rosé 2018

Fresh straw­ber­ries and sub­tle chalky notes de­fine the nose. The palate is framed by beau­ti­fully bal­anced, suc­cu­lent fruit flavours and a fine, min­eral fin­ish. R75

SPICY CHICKEN OR PORK TACOS Bouchard Fin­layson Blanc de Mer 2017

A foun­tain of flow­ery aro­mas on the nose! The taste is char­ac­terised by ries­ling hints of quince, apri­cot and al­monds with a com­fort­ing creamy mid­dle. Fresh and vi­brant, with a con­vinc­ing strength and qual­ity fin­ish. R107

EN­CHI­LADAS Gra­ham Beck MCC Brut Zero 2012

A clas­sic MCC, pro­vid­ing de­li­cious aro­mas of cher­ries, blue­ber­ries and earthy spice. A del­i­cate palate abounds with yel­low stone fruit and hints of bri­oche. Great bal­ance with a slightly salty fin­ish. R380
