qotd: haven’t had a ton from either, and there’s a lot of Austrian wines out there that I wanna try but can’t find. So I gotta go with Gruner for Austria (big surprise) and chenin for South Africa (huge surprise).

    Great show, I am South African and grew up in Constantia but I have never tried this wine before. I will be seeking it out.

    My favourite SA white wine? Probably the Sumaridge Chardonnay, or Kleine Zalze Bush Vines Chenin.

    As a previous poster mentioned, the Raats unwooded Chenin is unbelievable.
