Tim Atkin MW's 2016 South Africa Special Report

By Admin | 15 September 2016

In his fourth annual guide to South Africa, award-winning British wine-writer and Master of Wine Tim Atkin says the 2015 vintage is “the best I’ve tasted in 26 years of writing about the country’s wines” and should be a springboard to global recognition.

"A winning combination of better viticulture, the development of new wine regions and the emergence of a young generation of wine-making talent make South Africa the most dynamic wine-producing country in the world right now,” he says. Atkin singles out Chenin Blanc, Syrah and Méthode Cap Classique wines for special praise in his 2016 report.

Benguela Cove wine estate

UK Launch of Benguela Cove Wines - and first Golf & Wine Estate

By Admin | 15 September 2016

When we recieved an email about a winery and golf course was opening, we naturally assumeed that we'd have to fork out the cost of a flight to South Africa to get there. Imagine then, when we realised that the golf course was actually in the UK and we could enjoy a slice of the South African lifestyle without getting on a plane. Hurrah! 

Launced in September, the UK's first golf and wine estate at Mannings Heath golf club in Surrey showcases wines from Benguela Cove which are produced in the beautiful Walker Bay region of South Africa.

On a recent trip to South Africa, I was treated to a remarkable, one-off tasting. It was of Mèthode Cap Classique (MCC), which is the South African name for bottle-fermented sparkling wines. Canadian wine journalist Treve Ring, who I was travelling with, has a keen interest in sparkling wine, as do I, and so we were thrilled when WOSA managed to get word out that we wanted to do a serious, in-depth deep-dive into MCC, to see how things are going with sparkling wines here.

In Susan's glass

I fell in love with South Africa and the wines a few years ago. The recent MasterChef UK final took me right back to a holiday I had there. They went to the same Game Reserve that we stayed at and we also went to Reuben Riffel's restaurant in Franschhoek the night before my friends wedding - it was great to see Reuben as a guest judge too! Watching that episode seemed like the perfect excuse to open this beautiful bottle of Semillon from Boekenhoutskloof. What a delicious wine!
