‘Terre Noire’ Chenin Blanc, Swartland

This isn’t just a Chenin Blanc. It’s the Chenin Blanc – made by the country’s top producer of the grape, Ken Forrester. Terre Noire is beautifully textured, packed with gentle white peach and melon flavours, and equipped with a finish that goes on and on. We can’t think of a better match for prawns infused with lime and chilli. Or any kind of seafood for that matter.
Menagerie Chardonnay, Piekenierskloof

One of South Africa’s new-wave forerunners, Thorne & Daughters aren’t afraid to experiment. By choosing off-piste vineyards that bring out unique qualities in their grapes, they produce effortlessly stylish and interesting wines. Take this Chardonnay: you don’t get much more pure and expressive in character. Winemaker John Thorne calls it a ‘curiosity project’. We call it delicious.
Series Rare ‘The Apprentice’ White Cinsault, Stellenbosch

Even in a winemaking country that has everything, white Cinsault is an oddity. Yet the 50-year-old vineyard block that produces this bottling has been given a fresh lease of life in the new-wave Series Rare label from the Stellenrust winery. Think of it as the Rhône Valley come to sunny Stellenbosch.

Lourens River Valley, Stellenbosch

When it comes to Bordeaux-style blends in South Africa, there’s just no beating Stellenbosch. And this is a real head-turner from Morgenster, where legendary winemaker Pierre Lurton acts as consultant. Primarily Merlot and Cabernet Franc – with well-measured dashes of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot – it is elegant and polished. The 2013 vintage presented perfect ripening conditions so you're in for a real treat.
Sutherland Pinot Noir, Elgin

If you thought South Africa doesn’t do cool-climate wine, then this one is a game-changer. Plucked from vineyards on a mountain-ringed plateau in Elgin, its Pinot Noir grapes are clean and linear in flavour profile. The result is a modern, accessible bottling that shows off the best of the fruit.
‘The Antithesis’ Syrah, Stellenbosch

If we didn’t know better, we might guess that this wine is from the northern Rhône. A completely classy old-world-style Syrah, it’s made by a low-intervention winery that consistently gets plaudits from the critics. The cooler vintage makes this expression especially restrained and elegant. Proof again that Stellenbosch deserves its place among the world’s greatest wine regions.

Grilled Prawns with Chilli

Enjoyably eaten with fingers, prawns are a South African staple, with most of the shellfish consumed in the country coming from Mozambique. This simple recipe for a spicy, garlicky butter is quick to prepare and very tasty, especially when served with lots of crusty bread for mopping.
Simple Mushroom Risotto

Unquestionably one of the most comforting dishes to prepare and enjoy, a risotto is the ultimate in slow food. Comprising of a few simple steps and with arborio rice and time as the predominant ingredients, risotto is a warming one-bowl meal adaptable to many flavours. Here, a selection of mushrooms are used to create an earthy base for silky stock and plump risotto rice.
Lamb Shank Pie

A twist on the traditional meat pie, flavoursome lamb shank is slow braised with aubergine, rosemary and olives until meltingly tender, before being topped with buttery pastry and baked until golden. This recipe works equally well as individual pot pies or one large dish. Not only are they aesthetically pleasing, the addition of the shank bones further flavours the pies with their marrow, as they bake.
