Fortunately the wines of South Africa have come a long way on the world stage since the demise of apartheid. They are now known for world-class Chenin Blanc and Pinotage but are also generating acclaim for their Bordeaux-style varieties.
Wines of South Africa is an industry owned, not-for-profit organization. Its mission is to contribute to the global success of the South African wine industry by building Brand South Africa.
Sommelier Jim Clarke, Marketing Manager for Wines of South Africa, uncorks the 411 on these wines for us.
