South African Wines

Whilst the wines of South Africa are considered to be ‘new world’, the first grapes were pressed there as long ago as 1659. In Victorian times, the reputation of the wines of Constantia was second to none in the world. Sadly, however, under apartheid, wine production and sales became centralised and concentrated on cheap wines made from the Steen, or Chenin Blanc, grape and wine for distillation into brandy. It was only when the individual wine estates became permitted to market their own wines, with the collapse of apartheid, that the renaissance in the South African wine industry began.

Our range from South Africa is concise and well balanced, and packed full of wine from top quality producers. We work with old favourites Warwick Estate, Meerlust, Delheim and Middelvlei from Stellenbosch, whilst the wines from Franschhoek Cellar and Cape Mountain continue to offer great value and are very easy drinking, the range is complemented by the wonderful wines from one of the World’s most picturesque vineyard - Klein Constantia.
