Vansha 2010 Paarl South Africa (Price:1)

This is a typical South African wine, punchy and bitter, and although I don't personally like it, it is a good wine. If you're the kind of person that likes S. African wines, you'll like this one, although you might wake up with a headache. Before I tried it, I thought I would like it because its a GSM (one of my favourites), although in the wrong order with 80% Shiraz, 10% Grenache, 8% Mourvedre and the delicate 2% of Viognier.

When you drink it you get a flashback of being outside somewhere hot and humid,  drinking a sweet fruity drink, like Ribena but a cheap version. You're wishing you had a straw so you could look more elegant and avoid the sticky marks left in the corners of your mouth. You're eating black olives marinated in garlic and rosemary, but the rosemary pricks your tongue and you have to spit it out. You decide to go inside where its cooler and leave the drink and olives behind.

Try it if you're not afraid of a fight.
