This summer it's time to focus on South Africa!
The wines from South Africa are widely recognized for their new world fruit and old world elegance, plus they've been making wine here for more than 350 years!
I invite you (purely for enjoyable investigative purposes) to taste more wines from South Africa, not just the cheap & cheerful but the quality wines that are available to you.
These wines have distinct flavours and aromas, rich fruit and in many cases a restraint, which make them perfect food pairing wines.
No time for a trip to the Cape of Good Hope? Try a trip to your local wine store instead...
