Bold reds and lush sweet whites

A brilliant (read flattering) article in the UK's Daily Mail on the Swartland wine region. Olly Smith writes that "Many of (these) young stars cut their teeth in big-name wineries before striking out on their own, and with a progressive approach to social media and an emphasis on fun, theirs is an example other wine regions could learn from."

He also talks about a few of our wines:
1. AA Badenhorst Family Red Blend:
An outstanding red blend is AA Badenhorst Family Red 2007 (£29.95 at Harrods) - bold, harmonious and spicy, and an impressively restrained 13.5 per cent. Its creator Adi Badenhorst has an enviable bounce that's more than matched by his winemaking skill.

2.Sadie Family 2009 Columella
A sense of balance and more elegant levels of alcohol are what he's (Eben Sadie) aiming for, and his 2009 Columella is awesome, with freshness and a real sense of purity.







And we love these quotes:

Marc Kent: 'Bank robbers rob banks, because that's where the money is; we're getting more involved in the Swartland, because that's where the quality is!'


Eben Sadie: 'The Swartland isn't the most known area in South Africa, but it definitely has the most interesting soils. It's got no water, no irrigation and the highest number of old vineyards per capita in the country, and can produce incredibly high-quality fruit.'

Su Birch: 'New wine investment usually comes to Stellenbosch with restaurants and wineries. This is the opposite: younger people, not big capital, bringing back to life old vineyards and varieties which are either new or not usually treated with respect.'
