The Mindset of Perseverance

The Mindset of Perseverance   There is a right and wrong way to pursuing a goal, that big achievement.   According to Price Pritchett, Perseverance can be killing your dream if you are being STUBBORN and not trying something different. The first sign that we are not getting perseverance “down”, is that we have the same results repeatedly.   Meaning that we are sticking with the same old concepts of work harder instead of trying something DIFFERENT. For example I have a longtime friend who is a musician.  Listen to the story regarding his fifty year pursuit of the ONE HIT WONDER Richmond Nights, John Hudson.

Another difference would be that at Diemersdal all the vines are on one property, while in France the vines are usually in different villages. You have two hectares this way and one hectare the other way. Other than that, I would say the winemaking is the same, just not the same volume. I think SA winemakers are free to experiment on different grape varieties and blends because the Wine of Origin system is not as restrictive as the AOC’s in France. France loves its rules and regulations.” And comparing Cape Sauvignon Blanc to Sancerre? “The difference comes first from the terroir and climate. Sancerre is in the centre of France so it’s a continental climate (with cold winters and two months of hot summer) while in South Africa its more of an oceanic climate because of the proximity with the ocean. In Sancerre we have clay, silex and chalky-clay soils which makes very different type of wines, from fruity and light to mineral. In SA its more Sandstone, clay or shale, it will have an impact on the Sauvignon. The Cape Sauvignons are distinctive and superb.” Besides the wines, South Africa’s culinary offerings also appealed to Alice’s French gastronomy pedigree. “I was really spoilt living with Thys and his wife Ladine!” she says. “The best braais, Vincent Carême of Domaine Vincent Carême in the Loire Valley, brings his expertise and techniques from France to Swartland in this flagship bottling of which 2014 marks the second vintage. Vincent is passionate about Chenin Blanc, making several styles of the varietal, and he firmly believes that the  quality of the wine is determined in the vineyard. He’s found his spiritual home in South Africa and is excited about the promise of Chenin Blanc here and all that it can do.     My Favorite Things John Hudson   FEAR OF PUBLIC SPEAKING: kick those thoughts to the curb MINICOURS My E created by Valerie Hail.
