  • South African Wines - Rising Stars

    BY ANGELA MOUNT

    There’s a lot changing on the wine scene at the moment and South Africa is currently one of the most exciting countries in terms of new ideas and new styles of wine; no limits, no boundaries, it’s a voyage of exploration.  Sales of South African wines have rocketed in the last ten years, and are currently on the sprint track of the international market. Wines from the Cape now hold the number 5 position in terms of UK sales, ahead of Chile. The days when South Africa focused almost entirely on its national grapes Pinotage and Chenin Blanc are long gone, although these two important varietals still occupy a position of uniqueness and difference amidst the sea of international grape varieties that dominate the shelves.  The diversity of the wines coming out of South Africa is what is making this country so exciting to wine lovers at the moment, with a myriad of different styles from Shiraz and Bordeaux blends, to cool climate Sauvignon Blanc and elegant Chardonnay.

  • Super Cigales

    Cigales Tempranillo, Lezcano Lacalle, Maudes 2011

    Tempranillo & Merlot & Cabernet Sauvignon - an Autumnal blend if ever there was one. The "Maudes" is a deep cherry colour with prominent legs. The nose bursts full of black forest fruits, currants and blackberries with a spicy toasty edge. The palate is round and long with firm, silky tannins. Best paired with rustic stews, game and red meat dishes. Great seasonal red wine!
