On Thursday 3rd December, Tim Atkin MW will be exploring a classic and off the beaten track varietals from one of South Africa’s leading producers KWV.
Every year Tim writes the definitive in-depth report on South African wine and said about South African wines:
“Despite the well-publicised challenges it faces, South Africa is making the best wines in its history. Over the decade I’ve been writing these reports, it has been a delight to see the general improvements in quality and the tentative emergence of a South African fine wine sector. KWV now boasts one of the best viticultural and winemaking teams in the industry.”
The Mentors is a range of limited production wines which focus on terroir and climate. Alongside the core range, winemaker Izele Van Blerk and her team have the enviable freedom of pursuing innovative new varietals and blends, available in very limited quantities.
