South Africa has a long history of producing wine and they’re finally getting credit for it. The five South African wines shown in this kit begins with a fascinating comparison of two Chenin Blancs produced from two different regions. Pinotage, a crossing of Pinot Noir and Cinsault that was created in South Africa highlights a selection of three South African red wines, including a unique blend of Shiraz, Grenache, Cinsault, and Tinta Barocca from the Badenhorst Family. The kit concludes with a fascinating comparison of two Cabernet Sauvignon based wines from two countries, Australia and South Africa, two countries that are certainly giving more famous Cabernet Sauvignon regions like Bordeaux and the Napa Valley a run for their money.
The kit includes a selection of 6 wines (187 ml / 6.3 oz. each ) – easily enough for two people to taste. The wines have been carefully selected by a CIA wine and beverage professor to illustrate the concepts of the area of focus.
