Dramatic and positive change in South Africa has seen increased involvement in the wine industry by all ethnic groups and much work and research have gone into improving the quality of the nation’s vineyards. There is no doubting that wine quality at the upper end of the market here is good and improving. An increasing number of dynamic and truly exciting new producers are continuing to emerge. A number of reds of true world class are also being made, some at world class prices too. However South Africa still wants for more wines of such indisputable style and complexity. There has been a recent trend towards micro-production garage-style wines but it remains to be seen how many of these will stand the test of time.
