South African Wines Set For Increase In Quality

When 2015-vintage South African wines reach supermarkets in Europe, it is likely that many may be sold at prices higher than their equivalent vintages of the last few years.

This is due to an auspicious 2014 summer, which was warm, dry and windy, thedrinksbusiness.com reports.

These fortuitous conditions are conducive to earlier grape-budding, and thus a wine yield that surpasses the standard quality.

In 2016 and 2017, when 2015-vintage South African wine will appear in supermarkets, it is likely to be in strong demand and of top quality.

Siobhan Thompson, CEO of Wines of South Africa, commented, “The wave of optimism around the quality of South African wines will only continue,  and we’re excited to be able to showcase this great vintage during our forthcoming trade show, Cape Wine, this September.

"Our winemakers are gearing up to show visitors from across the globe some of the best wines South Africa has ever produced.”
