South Africa

A strong figure in the New World wines market, South African wines are enjoyable and benefit from a perfect climate for vine growing. SA is usually better known for its white wines than its red. South African Chenin Blanc, known locally as Steen, is probably the most popular, but South Africa produces wonderfully crisp Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.

Around 1.5% of the world’s grape vineyards are in South Africa and whilst this is a relatively small figure, the quality of the wines from South Africa is unquestionable. Our selection of South African wines helps to show off the finest white wines that the country has to offer and we are dedicated to ensuring that our collection is representative of the quality available in South Africa.

As mentioned, Chenin Blanc is the most popular South African white, with a bright refreshing acidity but the range expands far and wide beyond this including Sauvignon Blanc from Elgin, Chardonnay from Stellenbosch and Pinot Grigio from the Western Cape. South African producers are inventive with their flavours and tropical fruitiness is often present, adding a further depth to each bottle’s character.
