In the South Africa and Related Wines session in February 2013, we tasted:

Domaine de la Pouvraie, (Chenin Blanc), Vouvray AOC, Loire Valley, France, Sebastian Bonzon for Marks and Spencer, 2011, MYR69

*Klein Constantia, (Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon((13%)), South Africa, 2011, MYR126

Pinotage, Classic Collection, KWV, Western Cape, South Africa, 2012, MYR50

Pinot Noir, Ile de Beaute IGP, Corsica, France, Francois Labet, 2012, MYR65

*Low Yields. Prominent mineral texture and a steely acid backbone are features of this vintage. Ageing potential 2020.
