Misty Mountains se Wyne

Gansbaai Courant

 “Na my mening word wyne in Suid-Afrika te vinnig gebotteleer,” het Robert Davis van Misty Mountains Winery tydens Gansbaai Wynproegilde se wynproe-aand gesê. “Omdat dit my siening is, kan ek nie goedkoop wyn maak nie.” Robert, vergesel deur sy eggenote, Michelle, was die aanbieder in The Bouthouse restaurant in Gansbaai hawe. Nadat enkele formaliteite afgehandel is, het voorsitter Theuns Roodman die aanbieder bekendgestel.

Hierdie knap wynmaker het aan die Universiteit van Pretoria gradueer, en werk daarna vir sowat 14 jaar in die Departement Buitelandse Sake in stede soos Hong Kong, London en Madris in Spanje. Daarna is bestuur hy sy eie besigheid in Kaapstad, maar verkoop dit in 2004, waarna hy die wynplaas, Misty Mountains namens die eienaar as Algemene Bestuurder bestuur. Die puik wyne wat te proe aangebied is, is Sauvignon Blanc 2015, Rosé 2015, Shiraz 2009, Siraz 2010 en Sauvignon Blanc Anamae 2015.

Die Wynproegilde se lede, asook gaste, was baie beïndruk met die wyne wat hulle met sterk silwers tot goud beoordeel het. Robert het sy siening rakende wyn wat langer as die normale in vate behoort te bly om hoë gehalte wyn te kan produseer, breedvoerig verduidelik. Vele reisigers op pad na Hermanus het seker al gewonder wat by Misty Mountains aan die gang is. Gaan loer gerus in - dit sal die moeite werd wees. Irma van The Boathouse in Gansbaai hawe het gesorg vir ‘n uitstekende en gepaste ete met ‘n goeie verskeidenheid.
