South Africa has a rich wine tradition stretching back more than three and a half centuries. But it seems that in the past decade the wines have received the global recognition it deserves and more and more world citizens are treated to proudly South African wines.
In a recent column by in Wine Spectator magazine it is stated that “There’s something for everyone these days from South Africa. The Cape’s wines continue to improve, at both the top end and with its values. Diversity is on the upswing too, as grapes such as Cabernet Franc along with Rhône and Mediterranean varieties are being used by increasing numbers of the Cape’s winemakers.”
South Africa winemakers have the luxury of great soil, weather and diversified cultivars to make exceptional and interesting wines.
One such a wine is the Kumkani VVS white wine. This wine consists of Viognier, Verdelho and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. All the components were fermented separately before blending to make a really great and interesting white wine.
