South Africa is a country that is really going places in both terms of its politicals and its viticultural. It has quite beautiful scenery with many kind and genuine people who are anything but introspective and, in the context of this list, it is a country that is genuinely challenging the likes of Australia and Chile when it comes to quality wines, although it may take a few more years to achieve this goal.

Where South Africa is still lagging behind is in the cheaper range of wines, where many large-scale producers and co-operatives are unable to achieve clearly defined fruit flavours because of over-production and the motivation to control quality at the basic end of things is just not there. However, in the past year or so, we have noticed a considerable change from some of these larger producers who realise that the only way to develop markets is through quality consciousness and through the re-planting of suitable varieties and clones along with improved wine-making techniques. Although some old-fashioned wineries and co-operatives are not willing to change, the thing about South Africa that so enthrals us is how the majority of local wine-makers have spent time abroad, learning new techniques and attitudes and just how much they are prepared to experiment with new blends, old plantings and different methods of vinification.

Nose redolent of ripe black currant and plummy fruit. Toasty oak aromas and sweet fruit flavours are balanced by soft, ripe tannins. Good structure with soft, clean finish.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn the South Western Cape there is a great valley encircled by tall, gaunt mountains. A wide river meanders through the valley floor, which, during the millennia, created a fertile flood plain for itself. It is an arid land, for the mountains which shelter the valley also shield it from rainbearing clouds. The lack of rain matters not, for the early settlers soon learned to channel the river to irrigate the fertile plain. Here they planted their vineyards, orchards and pastures whose lush herbage makes a stark contrast to the thorny, stunted vegetation of the veld.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWith the simplicity of nomads the first people who trekked through the valley gave places names as they beheld the natural phenomena. The mountains which form the northern border they are called the Langeberg, which in Dutch means ?Long Mountains?, and those to the south they are called the Sonderendberge which are the ?Mountains which have no end?. The river they named the Breede, which in English, would be the River Broad.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn 1859 a young man with energy and vision came to the valley and bought a large tract of land. He pioneered the channelling of the river to bring water to his fields. He planted crops and established vineyards and orchards and built a cellar which, because it was continually being extended, became known as the Long Cellar. In his old age he divided his land among three sons, the youngest of whom named his portion Excelsior. Stephen and Freddie de Wet who now own Excelsior are the fourth generation of De Wets to farm the land of their ancestor.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThroughout its long history Excelsior Estate has been prominent in many ventures. Before the advent of the motorcar, the best hackney carriage horses were bred at Excelsior. Later these gave way to thoroughbred racehorses, and today Excelsior boasts one of the most distinguished studs in South Africa. In the last fifteen years eight individual Classic winners were bred at Excelsior.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAt the turn of the century when woman of fashion wore elegant ostrich plumes, Excelsior was at the forefront in the production of these. The large stately homestead with its ornately carved furniture bears evidence to the opulence of this area. The once famous herd of Friesland Cattle were sold when it was decided to concentrate on racehorses. Today large peach, apricot and citrus orchards are cultivated on the Estate, the fruit of which is mostly exported.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eExcelsior Estate has over 200 hectares planted to vineyards. Of these Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are the most important varieties. In 1981, a modern winery was constructed with adequate capacity to cater for further expansion. Great care was taken to select the best machinery to facilitate the vinification process.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe vineyards at Excelsior are all irrigated by drip irrigation and much emphasis is placed on applying the correct amount of water. Canopy management also plays an important role in the vineyard management and every effort is made to ensure harvesting is done at optimum ripeness. It is the philosophy at Excelsior that good wine is made in the vineyards and the winemaker can only succeed if he has good basic ingredients with which to work.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_drink_fbb5b570-decc-4e04-802d-57d23e1aa7cf.jpg?113\" alt=\"Drink\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Drink Now\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_food.gif?113\" alt=\"Foods\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Venison Sausages, BBQ, Game\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_dryness.gif?113\" alt=\"Dryness\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Dry\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_body.gif?113\" alt=\"Body\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Medium Bodied\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_colour.gif?113\" alt=\"Colour\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Dense Berry\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_grapes.gif?113\" alt=\"Grapes\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Cabernet Sauvignon\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_region.gif?113\" alt=\"Region\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Robertson, South Africa\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_producer.gif?113\" alt=\"Producer\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Excelsior Estate\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/product_icons_vintage.gif?113\" alt=\"Vintage\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e 2017\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cimg src=\"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/files\/sulphites_0ab734f9-50cc-46cc-a01a-27564467f9c2.jpg?113\" alt=\"Sulphites\"\u003e\u003cstrong\u003e Contains Sulphites\u003cstrong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e","published_at":"2019-02-05T12:25:38+00:00","created_at":"2019-02-05T12:25:38+00:00","vendor":"Christopher Piper Wines","type":"Food, Beverages \u0026 Tobacco \u003e Beverages","tags":["Digital Goods VAT Tax","Robertson - South Africa (Red Wine)"],"price":913,"price_min":913,"price_max":913,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":null,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":19614930632792,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":null,"available":true,"name":"Stablemate Cabernet Sauvignon 2017","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":913,"weight":1000,"compare_at_price":null,"inventory_management":"shopify","barcode":""}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/A133614_1a562a9c-06cb-4b3f-81b8-0e8faf6325ea.jpg?v=1549637456"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/0043\/0066\/9016\/products\/A133614_1a562a9c-06cb-4b3f-81b8-0e8faf6325ea.jpg?v=1549637456","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003cp\u003eBlackish plum in colour.
