We’ve had quite a few reasons to raise our glasses this week! Having just stepped out of the judging booth, our Bordeaux king, the Nebukadnesar 2014, came out with a gold medal and a score of 95 out of 100 at the Decanter World Wine Awards, as well as a gold medal at the International Wine Challenge. It is a structured, modern-style Bordeaux blend that is destined to become a classic, and we couldn’t be more proud of its success.
Winter Pearmain, a delicious apple variety, is an ancient fruit grown here in our garden under the watchful eye of Oom Anton Roux. For many years he ran his own nursery, where he propagated and grew varieties of old-fashioned gems.
