1. Genre – Tech House

Wine – Hardys Glen Mcgrath Chardonnay Semillon

Hardys Glen Mcgrath Chardonnay Semillon

Perfect track to sip and dance to – Rik Watts – Terminate EP

Loved for its full body, this special edition Chardonnay Semillon is not appreciated by everyone but it pure quality. Same goes for its equivalent in Tech house, ‘Terminate EP’ by Rik Watts is one of the perfect definitions of its genre and defines near perfection.

2. Genre – Deep House

Wine – Mud House Pinot Noir

Mud House Pinot Noir

Perfect track to sip and dance to – Luna City Express – Into Your Soul feat. RAD

A touch of the old world as well as the new, this Pinot Noir is full of bright red cherry and darker bramble fruit, layered with gentle notes of mocha and spice. A finely balanced tannin and acidity proves its relation to Luna City Express’ ‘Into Your Soul’.

3. Genre – House

Wine – Kumala Shiraz

Kumala Core Pinotage Shiraz

Perfect track to sip and dance to – Edu Imbernon Feat. Sutja Gutiérrez – Your Rules

A smooth medium bodied wine with warm spicy aromas and hints of ripe forest fruit, this elegantly structured wine envelopes you with deliciously intense flavours of dark chocolate, sweet cherry fruit and a hint of white pepper spice. This is why the perfect track to represent this creation is Edu Imbernon’s ‘Your Rules’. A track so well created with several elements coming together so smoothly to create a quality product.

Wine – Hardys Riesling Gewurztraminer

Hardys Riesling Gewurztraminer

Perfect track to sip and dance to – O-Be aka DJAMAL – Techno Vol.1

A modern blend, this off-dry wine offers apple, citrus and spicy hints. The product is as intense as its musical counterpart, the dark intense world of Cirez D with the perfect product, Ruby. And just like the wine, its always good to have on hand!

5. Genre – Minimal

Wine – Sula Zinfandel Rosé

Sula Zinfandel Rose

Perfect track to sip and dance to – Rummy Sharma – Warsaw (Just Phil & Bono Goldbaum Remix)

A popular favourite, the Sula Zinfandel Rosé is fun and fruity, with abundant aromas of honeysuckle and fresh strawberries. Just like the track, sip slowly while you immerse yourself into the calm tranquillity of the environment.
