In July we launched our flagship wine the premium, limited-edition Navitas 2009. Mother Nature played her part with a suitably cold winters evening to match the superb Rhone-style blend. A welcoming glass of Armilla bubbles on arrival, a warm fire, and the comparison of 2008 and 2009 vintages by winemaker Corne Marais created an excellent atmosphere. Then the exquisite #FABERfood and the Navitas were paired and found to be in complete harmony. The aromas and flavours complemented one another – long, full, dense mouth feels with refreshing aftertaste. The Navitas’ powerful initial taste, the soft flow on the palette leading to a full-bodied explosion, and a sensual after taste. A perfect companion to the three course meal.

The order of the evening was laughter, long tables, good food, good wine and good company. Don’t miss our La Luna Vintage Dinner to be held on the 18th August.
