Introduction to South Africa
How many other New World countries can boast their own grape variety? Pinotage is South Africa's very own 'marmite' grape (people eithe love it or hate it!), with its smooth, smokey, mocha-spiced flavours it certainly packs a punch in the mouth! Increasingly, South Africa is also making waves with its elegant, mineral-filled, crisp whites from the Loire varieties of Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc grown around the ocean-buffeted tip of the southern cape. The food and wine scene around Stellenbosch has exploded recently with new winemakers such as Marc Kent and Graham Beck crafting thoroughly modern premium wines. This melting pot of factors, combined with South Africa's uniquely long history of winemaking outside of Europe, makes it a fascinating country to come and taste your way around!
