Last week I was thrilled to receive Nederburg Premiere’s new food-friendly five-pack of reds, created to celebrate the run of MasterChef South Africa. Apparently it’s airing every Thursday on M-Net at 7:30pm until 18 December. I say ‘apparently’ ‘cos I’ve got a li’l confession to make…
I’m currently working as a script writer on two TV shows – Hayden Quinn South Africa and Win A Home on SABC 3. I’m also filling in at Top Billing this weekend while their regular dude is away so right now I’m pretty much consumed by TV, TV, TV… But here’s the kicker – I don’t actually own one so I never watch it. In fact, I haven’t even seen the final cut of any of my shows save for the premiere epi of Hayden Quinn. Eeep!
So, ja. I can’t really comment on MasterChef South Africa as I’ve yet to catch it. Still, I do like wine – very, very much – so this press drop totally made my week.
Each pakkie kkie comes with five Nederburg Winemaster’s Reserve vinos – a Cab Sav, Shiraz, Pinotage, Merlot and Edelrood (a Cab Sav-Merlot Blend) as well as two mooi rooi Le Creuset ramekins. The best bit? The whole shebang is only R300! That’s crazy good value chicas. I mean, for heaven’s sake, the bloody ramekins are worth R150 alone. Nederburg might as well just give their wine away.
I’m now seriously considering buying two more boxes ‘cos then I’ll have a matching set of six ramekins (and the OCD-riddled part of my psyche can rest at ease) plus ten more bottles of wine to crack open at all the braais and dinner parties I’ll be attending this summer. (Although, if my friends’ partytjies are anything to go by, we’ll easily smash a box in just one sitting.)
Anyway, my point is this – MasterChef fan or not, Nederburg’s new food-friendly five pack is a helluva good deal, whether you’re buying it for yourself or as a gift for someone else.
