South Africa

The style of South Africa’s wines sits somewhere between the full flavours of the Antipodes and those of France.

The meeting of the Indian and Atlantic oceans means the weather varies tremendously despite the areas of Stellenbosch, Paarl’s Franschhoek and Wellington, Elgin, Durbanville, Constantia and Walker Bay all fitting into an area no larger than Kent! Beyond the precipitous Klein Drakenstein mountains some great wines are coming out of Robertson while Voor Paardeberg in Swartland is home to extremely good reds. Chenin Blanc is the most important white grape but is increasingly losing acreage to Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Viognier. Cabernet Sauvignon is the number one red grape while their own Pinotage is ever improving. We increasingly admire the Syrahs.
