The flavors of the 2005 Spier Private Collection Pinotage are much like the aromas: creamy vanilla and red fruit. It's a dry, full-bodied wine with strong tannins and a lingering aftertaste. The aromas of this 2005 Pinotage are moderate in intensity and consist of vanilla, cream, plum, and other red fruits.

We tried the Sterling Vintner's Collection 2007 Chardonnay with pasta carbonara, thus testing the Chardonnay with both smoky flavors and creamy textures. We found that the pairing was pretty good — the Sterling Chardonnay was sharper, tarter, and drier when paired with the pasta carbonara, which in turn made eating the pasta more enjoyable.
Like the aromas, the flavors of the Ravens Wood Vintners Blend Chardonnay are primarily citrus but there is also some apple combined with spice and butter. It's dry, but the acidity is lively. The oak characteristics of this full-bodied Chardonnay are unmistakable, but not too strong so this is one Chardonnay that might appeal to both fans of oaky Chardonnays and those who would prefer something unoaked. There is a noticeable alcohol burn when the Ravens Wood Vintners Blend Chardonnay gets a bit too warm, so pay attention to the temperature when you serve and drink this white wine.
