Spend the official first day of winter on 21 June, with a luxurious red wine to beat the chill and the early setting-sun. Winter solstice, when the sun is at its northernmost position in the sky, is the shortest day of the year and Durbanville Hills’ reserve 2012 Rhinofields Merlot is a great way to turn a cold, gloomy evening into something special.
When the temperature drops slow-cooked meals and a good bottle of red wine is a fine way to spend chilly evening’s in-door. And the 2014 Durbanville Hills Shiraz will certainly not disappoint with its luscious black cherries laced with hints of mulberry, pepper, prunes and smooth vanilla.
