The majority of South African wine vineyards are located in and around the legislative capital, Cape Town. The first bottle of wine produced there was actually made by the city’s founder, Jan van Riebeeck.
Winemakers from overseas have brought increasingly modern techniques to South Africa over the years. Their influence has introduced a mixture of old and new winemaking traditions, with a focus on intriguing international styles. This includes Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay.
What is the Best South African Wine?
It is difficult to pinpoint the finest wine from South Africa. So, you’ll have to make up your own mind by sampling several different options.
We recommend starting with this destination’s most widely planted variety: Chenin Blanc. This grape grows in even larger quantities here than in France, where it was originally cultivated. Taste Cape Heights Chenin Blanc from the Western Cape. It’s a fresh, dry white wine that’s delicate on the palate; you’ll detect the citrusy aromas and crisp acidity with each sip.
If you prefer red wine, pour yourself a glass of Primordial Soup Red Blend. It features a rich meld of the country’s classic grape varieties, offering you a mouth-watering insight into the many flavours of South Africa.
