This wine is the personification of the Môreson estate’s beloved Weimaraner, Miss Molly. According to the winery, “During the afternoon Miss Molly is most often found sunning herself in our finest leather wingback chair. Here she devotes her time to relaxing – receiving visitors, love and adoration at her leisure. Hoity Toity is designed to capture the taste of our beloved Miss Molly’s lazy, sun-filled afternoons.” I can easily imagine curling up in a warm sunbeam with a glass of this in hand. However, the Miss Molly range of wines isn’t all about leisure – a portion of every bottle sold is donated to the South African Guide Dogs Association for the Blind, and Animals in Distress. Miss Molly is a working dog!Chenin Blanc, known as Steen in South Africa, is here plumped up with a portion of barrel-aged Viognier. Just off-dry, with fragrant peach skin fuzz and dried apricot aromas, delicate gingersnap, and a fresh peach and creamsicle palate. The oaked Viognier weight and mouthfeel smartly counters the ripe tropical fruit. Pour with white fish or Indian spiced dishes. 87 Points*January DRINKs will focus on budget-friendly selections, all ringing in under $17.South Africawine review SHARE VIA: Facebook Twitter Pinterest Written By: Treve Ring Treve Ring is a wine writer, editor, judge, consultant and certified sommelier, and has been with EAT Magazine for over a decade.\r\n\r\nIn addition to her work with EAT, she is a Wine Critic and National Judge for ...
