Top 5 SA Wine Facts

The Prosecco grape changed its name officially to Glera grapes in 2009, though we won’t go into the capriciousness of Italian wine law

Who decided which countries are classed as New World, and which as Old World? Despite having a rich winemaking history dating back to the mid-1600s, South Africa is lumped into the former simply based on its location.
South African wines run the gamut from the staunchly traditional to the fiercely modern. Many wines are made in a French-style, using similar blends to that of Bordeaux or the Rhône for example, but are often much more approachable and easier to understand than those from the Old World.
Pinotage is South Africa’s own grape variety, cultivated there in 1925. It is a cross between Cinsault and Pinot Noir but offers its own unique and bold characteristics. Pinotage is typically a more dense and savoury wine comparted to Pinot Noir, offering juicy berry flavours with spiced chocolate and tobacco notes.
Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon are the most planted grape varieties in South Africa, but varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah and Chardonnay are also popular. Merlot is widely used for blending, although some single-variety wines can still be found.
Most vineyards are in the Western Cape, which is divided into several regions. Today, wines are grown and made throughout the Cape but the major regions are Constantia, Stellenbosch and Paarl.
