Although one of the smaller New World wine producers, this country still has a great history in wine. Lately, South Africa enjoys record export sales, indicating its increasing popularity. The country is rapidly making up ground on its competitors and quality levels have improved dramatically to ensure growth.

The climate here is very similar to that of the Mediterranean, and therefore there are clear links between the characteristics of South African wines and those of the Old World.

All of South Africa’s winemaking regions rely on the coastal influences from the Atlantic and Indian Oceans and these conditions have worked perfectly for Chenin Blanc and Syrah. Terroir driven wines are the new focus here and our selection has been designed to reflect this
