We had brought with us a bottle of Red Namaqua wine. We had bought it at a retail price of Kshs 950 in Nakumatt Moi Avenue. This is one of my favorite spots to shop for wine. Why I love this place is that they have a wide array of different wines. The person in charge is very well versed with different brands. We told him to give us some sweet red wine that we can take on a day under the sun. He recommended this brand saying that it is ideal for girls who are catching up after a long time.We had lunch. It was ugali, beef and vegetables. This meal was cooked under a charcoal jiko and it was so tasty. We didn't have the ideal glasses for red wine but we worked with what we had.

Namaqua are wines from South Africa and they are produced in the Matzikama region. The wine was sweet on the tongue. It had a fruity taste and there was no tannic aftertaste. The food pairings we chose went well with the wine. However I think it would go well with grilled beef or kuku choma. I am yet to try that pairing. It is a good wine with 8% alcohol content . You can take as much as you wont without the fear of getting intoxicated. It is something I would definitely stock in my home.
As you can see the photos are a bit blurred. Our camera died and we had to use our phones for the images.
