Time to wine... Any South Africans?

Posted by Shuteh, Jul 6, 2010.

New to SA and wine.  Love the reds, a nice crisp Sauvignon Blanc, and trying just about anything.

Into podcasting and looking to launch my show: "The First Pour Podcast."


Love to chat with people about SA wine.

Hi Mark,

Glad to support anyone who's into South African wine. We pretty much have every South African wine worth drinking in our Cellar, either because we've been around since 1998 or because we're just that good :)

Should you need any recommendations, tips just shout.

I think SA does a great job with Chenin Blanc (usually labeled "Steen").  If you really want to get a debate going, ask everyone for their thoughts on Pinotage.  I'm not as anti-Pinotage as many are, but I do have a tough time with the Hawthorne (aka band-aid) nose that's so typical.

Warwick is definitely up there as one of my favorite producers and just happens to be from South Africa, Stellenboch specifically. :-)

Hello Mark! You can find some really great values on really good wines from SA . One of my favorite vineyards is Sebeka. The vineyard/game preserve was named after the owners pet cheetah. Even the cork is spotted. But, my favorite Sebeka happens to be the Cabernet Pinotage. It is a fantastic wine, ruby red, smooth, dark berries and the pinotage reall kicks it up in intensity adding to the berry notes and it is well structured. And thier Sauvignon Blanc is well ballanced, crisp acid, citrus notes and mineral texture is nice and refreshing. Thier Chardnonnay is also very good. Really nice wines for around $10.00 for a 750 ml bottle. Cheers!

I've tried several South African wines while in Tanzania and I was pretty satisfied with them.

 Graham's Beck has some good wines, as KV does.Others are Van Loveren and Nederburg.

Commons wine types are pinotage, chardonnay and cabernet....

South Afica's Pinotage Blends seem to be gaining popularity the world over.

South Africa's Wines have really come a long way!

I have enjoyed so many, and not only Cape wines, but from many other areas, including Walker Bay.

One of my favourites is Galpin Peak.  CHEERS!
