African Hips Don't Lie

Frankly my dear

Dear friends and other interesting creatures,

One should always be drunk. That’s all that matters…But with what? With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.
– Charles Baudelaire

On Route 317 between Bonnievale and Robertson in the Western Cape you will find Esona Boutique Wine owned by Rowan & Caryl. Esona is a Xhosa word, that translates to “The Very One”.

I first visited Esona Boutique Wine 🍷 three or four years ago on a media trip. Today I returned with @SirNoid and his parents.

I wanted them to taste a wine I had enjoyed on my previous visit, with the cheeky name of “Frankly my dear”. “Frankly my dear” is described on Esona’s website as a “Pinot Noir Blanc de Noir – with delightful candies on the nose, a fresh palate and a lengthy aftertaste that lingers like a sunny summer afternoon.”

Wild things we are, we had our first glass of wine before midday paired with the recommended platter which included dried Strawberries. A first for Mother-in-law and I, it was a treat!

“Frankly my dear” retails online at R75.

I wish you enough,
