Most of the Cape’s winegrowing regions are influenced by one of the two mighty oceans which meet at this southern most tip of Africa: Atlantic and Indian oceans. Combine beneficial maritime influences, like regular coastal fog and cooling sea breezes, with a moderate Mediterranean climate, distinctive and varied topography, and diverse soils, and you have the ideal conditions in which to create wines of unique character and complexity. Coupled to this, a winemaking tradition and history dating back more than 300 years blends the restrained elegance of the Old World with the accessible fruit-driven styles of the New, making for wines which eloquently express the unique terroir of the Cape. No wonder that this extraordinary wealth of natural assets and tradition should instill South Africa’s wines with a true sense of place.
