The Vanishing Point

I have an age problem. First of all, 38 years of tasting young wines has conditioned me to their charms – their energy, their freshness. Second, there’s little point in my buying wines that will take 20 years to mature. I might be dead by then.

COOL CLIMATE SOUTH AFRICA: PAUL CLUVER'S JOURNEY FROM APPLES TO PINOT NOIR

Elgin is a large, lush area of land, circled by mountains, in the Overberg region of South Africa. This broad upland valley lies about 45 miles southeast of Cape Town. It is an inland plateau, naturally defined by the surrounding mountains. Elevations ranging from 850 feet to 2,000 feet above sea level result in cool temperatures. The Elgin Valley is one of the more intensively farmed districts of South Africa and produces 60% of the national apple crop. Consequently it is now internationally known as the place in South Africa “where the apples come from.”

Should South Africa produce terroir-driven wines?

Should South Africa produce terroir-driven wines?

The importance of regional ties to the climate, soil and grape varieties is at the heart of terroir. The ‘somewhereness’ of wine as a holistic result of nature and nurture has led to the wine of origin and a potent marketing tool of wine globally. The French have owned this marketing approach as it created a valuable brand association with fine wines.


Could this work for Brand South Africa and should South African wine producers focus on terroir-driven wines per region?
