Late summer fruit in Cape Town.
Julie Andrews can keep her bright copper kettles (I suppose if she'd liked figs then pigs would have come into it...).
I love figs. And pigs, too, actually. The figs come from Prince Albert, on the edge of the Karoo.
And I adore hanepoot. It's not every year I taste these. Muscat d'Alexandrie, harvested from Buitenverwachting wine estate and sold beside the road in Tokai. Grapes with character. The browner the better.
Nothing favourite rhymes with hanepoot.
Fewer for the song. More for me.
