South Africa duo anniversary

Tersina Shieh   March 2019
The first time I went to South Africa was 1997, not long after Nelson Mandela was elected as president. I still have vivid memory of the visit - the spectacular scenery, incredible wildlife, enthusiasm of people and not least my first experience tasting wine at cellar doors.  
Since then, I have been back to the country for more than a dozen of times and mostly in the Cape Winelands. For the first eight years or so, wine regions were focused on Stellenbosch, Franschhoek, Paarl and Constantia. We would go to Elgin for apples and pears, Hermanus for whales and Swartland area for wildflowers rather than wine. So much has changed in the last 10-15 years!
Today, passionate young winemakers stand alongside established producers, new cool climate regions add sparkles to the classic regions, and wine made from old vines complements aged wine. Above all, wineries embrace sustainability and take great care of the environment. I can’t think of any wine country that has taken such a big leap forward as South Africa.
I discovered Swartland and white blends in CapeWine 2012, and then cool climate wine from Hemel-en-Aarde and Elgin in CapeWine 2015. At CapeWine 2018, the surprise was the Old Vine Project and the new style of Pinotage that is more akin to Pinot Noir. 
This year, South Africa is celebrating its 360 years of winemaking history and 25 years of democracy. Come toast to the country's duo anniversary at the annual tasting on 12th April (Friday), and find out for yourselves why international critics are praising South African wine.
