Check out your favourite fashion trend to find out which wine fits you (like a glove!):
 
Indie rocker
Grunge, the iconic 1990s fashion style is back! Check pattern plaid shirts, usually in red and black, characterise the revival, although distressed denims, leather, combat boots and Dr. Martens still typify this style, renowned for its edginess. A sultry pairing is a full-bodied Hermanuspietersfontein Shiraz blend (Shiraz, Mourvedre, Grenache and Viognier). The surprise aromas of spice, black olive and chocolate make this wine, much like grunge, one of the sexiest ensembles around right now.
 
Wear your art on your sleeve
Over-the-top, in your face outrageousness; avant-garde pairs anything from satin and leather to chunky biker boots and velvet, which is a big trend this year. Whatever you wear, as long as it’s got that velvet touch, it’ll scream, ‘I’ve arrived!’ And no doubt with a glass of bubbly in your hand, for an Infiniti MCC by Stellenbosch Vineyards is the perfect accompaniment to this eccentric style. It features warm toast, hazelnuts, almonds and citrus on the nose, with well-balanced acidity.
 
Dressed for success
If you mean business in the office and at home, and blur the lines between the two with confident but relaxed corporate wear, you’re the power dresser. This style is modest, elegant and sophisticated, making it the perfect match for a fresh and medium-bodied Zevenwacht Chenin Blanc 2015. This wine is a refined example of Chenin Blanc, featuring elements of honey, nuts, ripe pineapple, yellow melon fruit and hints of yellow peach with a floral undertone. The power dresser style is clean, formal and uncluttered, much like this cultivar. 
 
Radically retro
Anything from the 1980s and earlier counts as vintage these days, and the current fav is the bright and bold 80s. If shiny metallics, neon colours, puffy sleeves and yes, shoulder pads, are your thing, you’re a certified vintage fan. A rich red from an estate older than 200 years is as vintage as they come. You’re sure to enjoy the dark plums with hints of white pepper and dark chocolate of the Boekenhoutskloof Syrah. Because vintage fashion is like wine; it gets better with time.
