How old vines are a key part of Stellenbosch’s future

However much Stellenbosch wants to look forward, its future also lies in its past and the traditions and knowhow that enable so many of the innovations taking place in the region to happen. None more so than in the role of old vines in helping winemakers rediscover, and bring back to life varieties and plots of land that have gone unloved for many years. In the latest article from The Buyer’s Stellenbosch Business Report, Richard Siddle assesses just what impact old vines are having on modern winemaking in Stellenbosch.

TOP 100 WINES OF NEW ZEALAND 2022

It would have been easy for New Zealand to rest on its laurels from last year, when it was awarded our Top Wine of the World. Instead, the overachieving wine country looked ahead with renewed vigor and churned out a slew of even more amazing bottles to take the Top 100 Wines of New Zealand 2022 to another level, lending more credence to the argument that the country has found its place on the global stage of great wine.

The wines emerging from Argentina’s Cordoba

Ask anyone about Argentinian wine and you can be sure to hear about the calibre of the Malbec or the skilled winemaking coming out of Mendoza. But those in-the-know are wise to the fact that Cordoba is now home to some of the most exciting winemaking destinations in all of Argentina.

TOP 100 WINES OF SOUTH AFRICA 2022

TOP 100 WINES OF SOUTH AFRICA 2022

The JamesSuckling.com tasting team rated more than 800 South African wines this year, and it’s fair to say that chenin blanc outperformed all the amazing varieties popping up across the country. In fact, South Africa is turning into a great white wine producer overall, and is perhaps even better with modern chenin blanc than the holy grail for the grape, France’s Loire Valley.

TOP 100 WINES OF CHILE 2022

Our Top 100 Wines of Chile 2022 list is loaded with newly released bottles from the 2019 and 2020 vintages, but it’s the more challenging 2020 that gave us our top pick despite the drought, heat spikes and COVID outbreak of that year. The fresh, coastal Errázuriz Chardonnay Aconcagua Costa Las Pizarras 2020 is our Wine of the Year – the first time a chardonnay has taken the top honor for Chile.

South Africa

In 1990, two momentous events changed South Africa in ways that are still being felt today: Nelson Mandela was released from his prison on Robben Island, setting a new course for the beleaguered nation and Apartheid was abolished, freeing the people from its grip and opening the country's economy.

Syrah or Shiraz? A Tell-All About the Popular Grape
17 January 2023 12:25
Syrah or Shiraz? A Tell-All About the Popular Grape

As the fourth most planted red grape in the world and the third most planted red grape variety in France, Syrah or Shiraz (depending on location, style, and type) possesses vibrant dark skin with an excellent full-bodied roughness. While its origins remain open to interpretation, several different theories exist. Though Syrah dates back to 13th century Rhone Valley, France, Phocaeans (inhabitants of the titular ancient Greek city off the coast of modern-day Turkey) may have brought it over from Shiraz, Persia, in 600 BCE. Another theory states that the Romans brought the grape from Sicily sometime during the 3rd century. Wherever Syrah came from, it spans the globe, including Argentina, Chile, South Africa, and New Zealand. Syrah grows on approximately 470,000 acres worldwide, with France, Australia, and Spain being the most prominent producers.[/b]
