Premium South African wines sit comfortably at the higher end of wine lists delivering outstanding quality and perfect food wines, whether reds for meat dishes or whites for seafood. The Pinotage grape, indigenous to South Africa, is producing wines that are clean, fresh, vibrant and characterful. Bush vine Chenins have richness and texture yet are light in body to be plentiful and fun.
Facts & figures
The wine regions are mainly found in the cooler southern section of the country near the coast where the grapes enjoy long hours of sunshine and fantastic levels of ripeness.
