Blake’s Family Wines lig sluier op jongste juwele en twee ‘jongelinge’

Andries Blake se twee "juwele" pronk voor terwyl sy "jongelinge" oor hul skouers loer!

En as mens ook nog in ag neem dat enkelkultivarwyne jaar na jaar verskil danksy byvoorbeeld veranderinge in klimaat (meer/minder wind, meer/minder son, meer/minder reën, ens, ens, ens.), dan gee wyn se “verskeidenheid” (lees: variety) sommer baie “speserye” (lees: spice) aan die lewe!
