Experience the explosion of the "Double O's"
There was much rubbing elbows but also some lifting of them at Live Out Loud's tasting evening, hosted by Oil & Vinegar at Cedar Square.
Guests sampled plump olives soaked in citrus infusions, luxurious balsamic vinegars and a magical pomegranate reduction - some of the finer things in life. A wine tasting followed, hosted by Dave Moss of Elbows Up. Dave is a passionate wine connoisseur who educated the guests on the "Double O" - an oral orgasm. Such as would be experienced when putting your glass of matured red wine to your lips.
The wines sampled were a Joubert Tradauw Chardonnay 2006, The Berrio Sauvignon Blanc 2008 and the Joubert Tradauw R62 Merlot Cabernet 2006. This Chardonnay had very subtle oak flavours and it is therefore the perfect wine to drink with spicy, flavoursome foods. It also compliments salad, seafood and chicken. The Sauvignon Blanc has been rated one of the top 250 wines of the world and guests loved its fresh lime and herb flavours.
"Red wine should go down like a waterfall, smooth and without bumps," explains Moss. Which is exactly what the Merlot blend did.
