Veritas Awards 2009…know your wines folks

Life is Savage is constantly trying to ensure that its readers experience the finer things in life..the good sh*t as it were.

Lesson number 12 : Know your wines

Especially wines that just recently won double gold (thats better than gold ya ) at the Veritas Awards 2009, the longest running and most prestigious wine competition in South Africa and is synonymous with excellence in wine.


You dont need to memorise the whole list..just a couple. Then when surrounded by hot wine tasting people just casually bring it up in conversation like so:

“oh are you talking about the Diemersfontien Carpe Diem Pinotage 2007?”

Then throw in some pretentious wine tasting jargon like such:

“it has a complex, full bodied smootheness with a soft fruity undertone”

No need to thank me when you get go out there and be classy. (just make sure to get drunk on  papsak wine before so you dont have to spend any money)
