It was really interesting going through the cellar, learning about the different stages of wine making, and also getting to try the wine from several of the barrels, which were at different stages in the wine making process. I have to say, I liked the taste of the grape juice, it was sweet, and had a very zesty but refreshing taste to it.
Once the yeast was added though, it was a completely different drink, and not the nicest :-p
Thankfully when we tried a wine from another barrel which was in its final few weeks of processing before being bottled we could taste the resemblance of wine again :-)
After the cellar tour we went in to the tasting room to try the wines. I enjoyed quite a few of the wines. Some of these included the balance natural sweet rose which is sweet and easy to drink, the balance pinotage/shiraz which was nice, simple and smooth, the Vin Sec (dry) which is a sparkling wine, not very dry and is easy to drink. After the tasting we bought quite a few bottles to take home.
The price of the wine is very reasonable. You've got to love Worcester wine prices!!!The wines range in price from as little as R25 for the Balance wines and don't go any higher than R60 for the soulo wines.
There is a huge range of wines to taste at this winery, the staff are very friendly and informative. If you plan to do a tasting in Worcester then I would recommend trying the wines at Overhex.
