Cape Town self -catering accommodation may be off the cards right now but that doesn’t mean you need to go without your favourite award-winning Cape Wines.
The Cape Town wine export industry is still alive and kicking and exporting via an online or retail store near you. These are just some of the top wines you can enjoy wherever you are.
This sprawling Franschhoek Estate lingers in the foothills of the Groot Drakenstein Mountains, incorporating the stunning LÓrmarins estate and Fredericksburg Black Angus Stud.
Although it’s always best to enjoy the fruits of the vine right at the source, where you can also indulge in estate tours, high tea, and wine pairing experiences, you can still get a taste of excellence in the UK.
The 2013 Anthonij Rupert Cabernet Franc and the 2016 Cape of Good Hope Laing Groendruif both achieved five stars at the latest Platters Awards and are widely available online.
Tokara is one of Stellenbosch’s most interesting vineyards located on the slopes of the Simonsberg mountains and surrounded by a glorious fynbos-rich environment. These weathered sandstone and granite landscapes are what make these wines so special.
Another top finisher in the Platter’s awards, Tokara’s Director’s Reserve Red 2015 is available online and from selected retail stores in the UK and Europe.
Newstead Lund Family Vineyards
Based in Plettenberg Bay, this up-and-coming wine estate has long been in the ribbons, scooping up awards since 2014. It’s just as popular in Europe as it is locally, so you’re sure to find it in stock at your favourite supplier.
