We firmly believe that South Africa is one of the world's most exciting wine-producing countries at the moment … today a new generation of younger wine producers are also offering a completely different range of styles and flavours, many of them uniquely South African. These bright young things are breathing new life and fresh air into the whole world of wine

A Guide to Wines by Styles
We are passionate about all things wine, and they've put together this handy guide to help advise, inform and inspire you to select the perfect bottle, whatever the occasion. So expand your oenological knowledge (the science and study of all aspects of wine and winemaking).
Easy drinking wines like these go well with almost any meat flavours but are especially good for parties, finger food and BBQs.
These lovely flavoured reds complement medium flavoured meat dishes, especially lamb, pork or even a meaty dish.
These fruit flavours have an added subtle, spicy twist. Hints of vanilla and pepper complementing plum, cherry and blackcurrant.
Full bodied reds like these are perfect to serve with roast beef and full flavoured red meat casseroles.
Light and Fresh
Light & fresh whites will typically have lower alcohol content and a sweeter taste.
Crisp and Fruity
Crisp, fruity whites are fantastic served chilled with nibbles, starters and buffet foods. They're also fantastic on their own.
The Sauvignon Blanc grape and other aromatic white wine, is always a popular choice to serve with fish and shellfish dishes.
Smooth, Full or Oaked
Ripe, creamy, tropical flavours make these full, oaky whites a great match for chicken or firm fish.
Light and Delicate
Light in alcohol, these can be anything from dry to sweet and are best consumed as a light refreshing drink at any time. Great for parties and casual occasions.
Fresh, mineral styles such as Cotes de Provence and Pinot Grigio Blush. Best served with dishes such as white fish or salads.
Soft and Mellow
Sweeter styles such as Californian White Grenache or White Zinfandel, Anjou Rose. These are great by themselves or with salads or lightly spiced food.
Full and Fruity
Bright, full bodied styles that are mostly dry e.g. Spanish Garnacha or Tempranillo Rose, with pronounced raspberry or strawberry fruit. Lovely with fish, spicy food or chicken and even grilled red meats.
Light and Soft
Often made in a sweeter style, these wines are easy to drink and suitable at any time.
Very fruity such as the grapy styles of Moscato or Asti. Lovely served with snacks or fresh fruit in between meals.
This includes lively, very fresh styles such as Prosecco, English sparklers and some Chilean fizzes. These will best suit those who like a crisp dry style for an aperitif, and will match food such as fish and light chicken recipes very well.
Mellow and Elegant
Champagne and Cava are included in this category as they have been aged in the bottle. Although dry, they have a smoothness and long lasting flavour that makes them very food friendly, whether served with just a few nibbles or a proper meal.
Sweet and Raising
Rich styles of wine such as port, Madeira or Marsala suitable for sipping with cheese or after dinner.
Aged and Nutty
These wines can be dry or sweet, pale or dark with subtle flavours of walnuts, oranges or even olives. Best served as an aperitif.
Wines with added flavouring
These are wines such as vermouth or aperitifs, best served on the rocks or with mixers such as tonic.
Wines made using fruit other than grapes, best served on their own before or after a meal.
