Orange River Cellars Colombard 2010

The problem with South African wine writing is that nobody’s prepared to make really big calls. A bunch of my colleagues went up to Upington for the Orange River Winemaker of the Year Competition recently but I’m buggered if any of them came back with recommendations about wines we should actually seek out and buy. […]

Slanghoek Vinay Crispy White N/V (1-litre bottle)

Is there reward to be had from a wine rated 2½ Stars? Tasting through the line-up of wines at Wine magazine’s Best Value Wine Show held yesterday, I really liked the Vinay Crispy White Non-vintage from Breedekloof winery Slanghoek.

I found it herbaceous on nose and palate, juicy and clean but somewhat slight and not particularly […]

Constantia Glen Three 2009

It’s curious how some new farms instantaneously enjoy a high profile and others wallow in obscurity for years. When Constantia Glen released its maiden vintage 2007 reds last year, it had most critics gushing, no doubt partly persuaded by the eloquence of Karl Lambour as winemaker while the involvement of Dominique Hébrard, former co-owner and […]
