In his fourth annual guide to South Africa, award-winning British wine-writer and Master of Wine Tim Atkin says the 2015 vintage is “the best I’ve tasted in 26 years of writing about the country’s wines” and should be a springboard to global recognition.
Atkin's publication, which runs to almost 190 pages in 2016 and is the product of two trips to the Cape this year, as well as further tastings in the UK and Germany, includes:
- Top wines of the year (white, red, sweet and sparkling);
- Scores for over 1,400 wines;
- 900+ tasting notes;
- Evocative photos of the winelands and winemakers;
- His 2016 classification of the 150 best South African wineries.
Here are his top scores for our Delheim Wines:
Edelspatz Noble Late Harvest 2015 - 93 points
Vera Cruz Pinotage 2013 - 93 points
