South African wine is produced in a land that is almost perfect for vine-growing. Vineyards are developed in landscapes with great contrasts, at the foot of grey and blue mountains that become valleys of and intense green in the summer and fiery red in the fall. It has a Mediterranean climate, characterized by rains during the winter and long, dry summers, made gentler by the sea breeze.
The range of South African wines is very wide, and it includes from Ports or Sherries and sweet dessert wines, to robust and light red wines and young, aged, aromatic white wines, as well as sparkling wines and brandy.
South African vineyards devote 75% to the cultivation of white grape varieties, like Chenin, Muscat, Chardonnay, Ugni Blanc, Rhine Riesling or South African Riesling. The varieties of black grape cultivated are mainly Pinotage, Cinsault, Syrah, Alicante Bouschet or Tinta Barroca.
