Wine tasting at Cape Point Vineyards
I treated my cousin Jade to wine tasting which was something she had never done before but in the end said that it was totally worth it paired with our explorations of the area and the beautiful view of Noordhoek. If you plan to visit the area anytime soon it is definitely for the books.
Apon wine tasting we tried, each were the Cape Point Vineyards wines made by winemaker Duncan Savage, the Souvinon Blanc Reserve, the Semillon, the Isleidh (named after the owners granddaughter how cute and is a mixture of sauvinon blanc and semillon) as well as their Cabernet sauvinon. Both jade and I found that the cabernet was a bit drying on the pallate after drinking several white wines which held a strong mineral backbone.
Our favourite wine by far was the Semillon. Thus of course i had to buy it for Jade as an extra birthday gift. I love to spoil.
Ella had a blast and so did we there were play areas on the extremelly large amount of grass where Ella picked a beautiful purple flower for her mommy and then proceded to do the same but with a leaf haha she had the same enthusiasm and everything.
