South Africa is another dynamic wine producing country that is often overlooked due to its history and also memories of tired old reds and blowsy whites, but it’s time for another look at their wines. After visiting South Africa last September I came back with renewed interest for the long established wineries and new producers who were offering excellent wines who are putting the apartheid era behind them.
Flagship Wines has a diverse range of South African wines from some of the best known varieties such as Sauvignon and Cabernet but also Chenin Blanc and Pinotage that are now carving strong niches for themselves as producers of really lovely complex wines that are full of flavour. Blended wines such as the Rustenberg John X Merriman Bordeaux blend are also key players in this market and a style we have taken on in our range.
As you will see from our carefully selected range the two main producing regions of Stellenbosch and Paarl produce most of our wines. There are over 40 South African wines in our range to choose from and we are happy to help you in your selection so please do contact us.
