We’re currently struggling to tell the difference between a weekday and the weekends in lockdown. But we are here to remind you that Father’s Day is coming up on 21 June, and with the COVID-19 alcohol ban recently being lifted what more could Dad want than to celebrate with a nice bottle of wine! What to get your old man depends a lot on his taste and personality. Here are our top recommendations:
1. Cabernet Sauvignon
A great Cab Sauv is the perfect gift for your red-wine loving Dad. Often boasting characteristics of dark fruits like plum, black cherry, blackberry along with warm spice, vanilla, licorice, and black pepper. We suggest pairing this bold choice of wine with a nice steak to celebrate this Father’s Day. This is sure to warm the heart of any Dad!
You can’t go wrong with a Braai for Father’s Day! Bring Dad a bottle of Proudly South African Pinotage to enjoy while braaiing in the backyard. Pinotage is dense in colour and bold in flavour with notes of plum sauce, tobacco, blackberry, tar and licorice.
3. Sauvignon Blanc
If your Dad is more of a white-wine lover why not opt for a crowd pleasing Sauv Blanc. It’s gentle flavours and aromas of lime, citrus and lemongrass will put a smile on any Dads Face. Pair this refreshing choice with fresh fish…Your old man isn’t the only catch of the day!
4. Pinot Noir
Does your Pops love a good Pinot Noir? (Pronounced Pee-no Nwah) Show Dad you care with this delicate choice that’s light and silky with red fruit aromas ranging from strawberries to black cherries. Put your cooking skills to the test and pair this remarkable wine with a mushroom risotto.
5. MCC / Sparking Wine
Satisfy Dad’s sweet tooth with a brunch of pancakes and all the decadent toppings that should accompany them. Cut through all that sweetness with a bottle of MCC or Sparkling wine. What a bubbly way to start Dad’s day!
