Ian is fortunate to taste some magnificent South African wines while sharing his own. In future, he’d like to share some of these with you, beginning right now:
Erika Obermeyer Cabernet Sauvignon
Erika began her career at Kleine Zalze, and then on to Graham Beck. Her recent decision to start her own label was immediately vindicated when she won the Newcomer Winery of the Year in the 2019 Platter Guide.
Ian can’t say enough good things about all of Erika’s wines, but her Cab Sauv and Sauvignon Blanc were called out for specific attention. Find them here.
Samantha O’Keefe is the owner and winemaker at Lismore, just outside of Greyton. Her wines are exquisite. Focused and precise cool climate gems. It’s really hard to pick a favourite, with her Reserve Chardonnay maybe the best Chardonnay in the country, but the Lismore Syrah is a revelation. Find most of Sam’s delicious wines here.
