SOUTH AFRICA

South Africa has always been regarded as a New World wine producing region, despite the fact that the first grapes were pressed for winemaking in 1659. The Modern South African wine industry as we know it today could be said to be little over a decade old; apartheid rule isolated the country from international trading for decades and there have been remarkable developments and a rapid catch up since the advent of democracy in 1994. Between1995 to 1997 alone, exports increased by 335%.

There are now over 600 wine producers in South Africa, a figure that has doubled since 2000, and the country is now the ninth largest producer of wines worldwide. Empowerment has also been a key element in the development and today over 100,000 people from historically disadvantaged groups are now employed in the wine industry.

TASTING NOTES

A richer, riper example of old vine Chenin with spiced apple, peach and hints of mandarin from the warmer Swartland. This wine is always underscored by a fine citrus acidity which brings its gorgeous fullness to life.

TASTING NOTES

The wine’s appearance is marked by a vibrant, dense and purple hue. The nose exhibits berry fruit aromas of mulberries and blueberries, subtly framed by vanilla spice and earthy notes. Gentle structure and finesse combine to make the 2014 so attractive. It has good weight and richness, with layers of flavour, yet there is a really classic element to the...

TASTING NOTES

With a delicate green golden appearance, the 2016 vintage promises a fresh array of wonderful fruit aromas. Papaya, melon and limes jostle for attention aside freshly sliced Granny Smith apples and touches of oak spice. Sourced as it was from an array of mature vineyards across the Western Cape, the wine is richly layered with golden ripe fruit and finely balanced texture. The...

Wines from South Africa

There is so much variety when it comes to South African wines; from fruity whites to full bodied reds. Armit Wines proudly imports different varieties from across South Africa – discover our full South African wine list today.

South African wine regions

Stellenbosch is a great place to start when it comes to South African wine. The centre of the country’s winemaking world, established in 1679, the region is best known for producing South African red wines like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Pinotage. The climate is tempered by the nearby Atlantic Ocean and drier than South Africa’s other wine-producing regions. Can you scent and taste all that in a 2009 Grand Vin?

At the other end of the scale – and on the other side of Cape Town – is Swartland. Warmer than Stellenbosch, it’s also the country’s youngest wine producing region and famous for its South African white wines like this 2013 Aristargos from David & Nadia.

Producers of South African wine

Located in Stellenbosch, the Mulderbosch winery is owned and operated by winemaker Adam Mason and his team. Building on a reputation for quality, especially in their white wines, the team has taken things a step further recently by creating special releases of single-vineyard Chenin Blancs and even a Cabernet Sauvignon rosé.

In Delaire Graff, you’ll find the fusion of two South African success stories: wine and diamonds. When Laurence Graff OBE, Graff Diamonds’ chairman, acquired the Delaire vineyards in 2003, winemaker Morné Vrey began to produce award-winning Bordeaux, Chardonnays and Sauvignon Blancs like this 2017 Sauvignon – which Armit Wines has been proudly importing to the UK since 2012.
