#Wines to watch in 2012

The Observer in the UK is quoted as telling readers –

“Another region to look out for will be Swartland. The flood of high-quality, Rhône-inspired reds and rich dry whites from this hotspot of new winemaking talent has made this rugged, remote corner of South Africa the cult name to drop. I wouldn’t be at all surprised if mainstream acceptance in the form of a Taste the Difference or Tesco Finest Swartland arrives this year.

Many of Swartland’s producers conform to another trend that looks set to spread – the desire to make more natural wines, from organic or biodynamic vineyards and with minimal interventions and added chemicals. The end of last year saw the beginnings of a backlash against this movement, with critics pointing to the patchy quality in those made without the addition of sulphur dioxide as a preservative.”

Correct planting, a point of difference and focused – perhaps we could all learn a thing or two.
