I have been asked to present a tasting on Tuedayof Pinotages to a wine club of 60 people so am producing the tasting sheets now. I couldn't get hold of any non-South African pinotages for the tatsing, so I decided to have a themeof firsts. These are the eight wines I will be showing on Tuesday: Delheim Rosé Pinotage 2008 (Delheim were the 1st winery to make a rosé Pinotage in 1976) Simonsig Kaapse Vonkel Brut Rose Méthode Cap Classique 2006 Simonsig were the 1st South African winery to make a Methode Champenoise sparkler in 1971) Mellasat ENIGMA Blanc de Noirs Pinotage 2008 (this is the 1st commercial release of a white Pinotage) Warwick Estate Three Cape Ladies Cape Blend 2005 (Warwick's 3 Cape Ladies was the 1st cape blend in Wine Spectator’s World’s Top 100 Wines) Diemersfontein Pinotage 2008 (Diemersfontein pioneered the amazing 'coffee & chocolate style' of Pinotage and it was voted 1st choice of readers of The Cape Times which proclaimed it “the Peoples’ Pinotage”) Bellevue Estate Houdamond Pinotage 2007 (Bellevue grew and made the world’s 1st varietal Pinotage in 1959 ) Beyerskloof Reserve Pinotage2006 (1st winery to have 2 wines, this is one of them, in Pinotage 10 Competition) Kanonkop Estate Pinotage 2004 (Kanonkop is South Africa’s ‘1st Growth’ says WINE Magazine) Problem, as always, is sourcing the wines I wanted. I ordered some Reyneke, which is theolny biodynanically grown Pinotage but then the supplier cancelled theorder as they had only one bottle. And I couldn't get 4 bottles of NZ or California Pinotages either.

That sounds like lots of fun Peter!

I should look into shipping wine over to you in England, to find out what's involved. Maybe there are wines I can get here that you can't easily get ...
