Inky voter’s thumb and vino

So Nic Harry from SA Rocks came up with this cool idea to post a whole lot of pics of South Africans and their inky thumbs today. The ink shows that you have voted in the national elections today, 22 April 2009.

I’ll link to his post as soon as it is up, as it will be fascinating to see. UPDATE: here it is! In the meantime, here’s my inky voter’s thumb, clutching a celebratory glass of South African vino – of course.

For the record, it’s Cloof’s very delicious Happy Dragon 2006 I am drinking. This is a Pinotage-Shiraz blend, with a cute SA-variation of the St George and the dragon story on the label. It’s newly released and apparently should be hitting the shelves any day now.

Speaking of Darling, with some phenomenal timing that I can’t take credit for at all, I am now off to see Pieter-Dirk Uys, in his new show Elections and Erections, at the Baxter in Cape Town.

SA Rocks: Something is brewing in Cape Town

nigiro-tea-potA confession: I only realised that the name Nigiro, was Origin spelt backwards, about two days after I went to the Nigiro launch earlier this month. Blush. Nonetheless, the opening of Dave and Joel’s new tea room in their Cape Town coffee shop was fab – here’s the article I wrote for SA Rocks.

SA Rocks: Happiness and magic in the morning sun

img_1831I had a fabulous trip to Môreson wine farm in Franschhoek earlier this month. Read the article I wrote for SA Rocks here.

I’ve been on a bit of a wine writing hiatus recently, and it’s good to get back into the saddle – or get the wine glass back in hand! – and finding out a bit more about South African wine.
