South Africa–Pioneering wines with big potential.
From Cape Agulhas to Central Orange, South Africa is the next great region for warm-climate wines with dusty minerality. The Western Cape's rugged granite hills are over 65 million years old, and vines struggle to dig through these soils to produce dense, mineral-driven wines. Cabernet Sauvignon may be a highlight for South Africa, but you'll discover a love for Chenin Blanc, Syrah and Grenache too.
