You’ll find the bulk of South Africa’s wine regions on or near the coast of the Cape, where they leverage the cooling influence of the Southern Ocean. Combined with the mountain ranges that run through many of the regions, providing various altitudes, aspects, and soils, this unique landscape yields a wide range of wine styles. Among the black grape varieties planted here are Cabernet Sauvignon (the most widely planted), Merlot, Syrah, and Pinot Noir. Pinotage, a cross between Pinot Noir and Cinsault, also has significant plantings and is little grown elsewhere in the world. Winemakers create Pinotage in a range of styles, from light and fruity to full-bodied old-vine wines. Among the white grape varieties, Chenin Blanc is the most widely planted grape of either colour; Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay are also widely grown. Among the prominent winemaking areas of South Africa are Stellenbosch, Paarl, Swartland, Walker Bay, Durbanville, Constantia, Worcester, Robertson, Elgin, and Elim.
Stellenbosch is a wine-producing district within the Coastal Region wine region of South Africa. The district has been critical in building the country’s reputation on the world stage for high-quality wines. Stellenbosch fuses a warm Mediterranean climate with maritime influences, including ocean breezes and fog along the coast. Along with other influences such as its cooling mountainous slopes, varied soils, and rainfall ranging from 600 to 900mm annually, this combination makes it an ideal region for cultivating grapes. Plantings include traditional black-grape varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Pinotage, and white-grape varieties, such as Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, and Chardonnay. The region has become known for its premium-quality Cabernet wines.
