NATIONAL WINE WEEK 2021

South Africa

Winemaking in South Africa goes back more than three hundred years and is mainly centred on the Western Cape, which has a Mediterranean style climate. 

The most widely planted varietal is Chenin Blanc and indeed it is this white wine has helped build South Africa into the World’s 7th biggest producer. 

Other key white varietals are Colombard and Sauvignon Blanc. Although historically more of a white wine producer South Africa also produces red wines, such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Pinotage, a native crossing of Cinsaut and Pinot Noir.

In wine there is truth!
