2017 Edgebaston "The Pepper Pot" Stellenbosch

SKU #1427614

As its playful name suggests, this spicy red is a Syrah-dominated blend, featuring classic Rhône varietals. David Finlayson, owner and winemaker at Edgebaston, created this red with the joy of the everyday in mind. It’s a fruit-forward style, bursting with luscious black cherry and cassis flavors, while retaining a spicy edge, definitive structure, and a clean finish. David employs only stainless-steel tanks rather than oak barrels in making this wine, to highlight the fruit character. His recommended pairing for this charming little wine is pizza.

Back when I was first seriously getting into wine but had the budget of a poor college student, someone told me that South African wines were the way to go—they’re always affordable and taste great! It’s funny how those early pieces of advice can stick with you. I’ve had a fondness for South African wines ever since, and I’ve found that advice to be generally quite true. The 2017 Edgebaston “Pepper Pot” is perhaps one of the best arguments I’ve found for the incredible value of South Africa.

South Africa

- Now that it has adopted a multi-racial attitude, and now that the world has embraced its government and its exports, South Africa has become a major wine producer. Unfortunately, South Africa has had a difficult time joining the ranks of competitive winemaking countries. During the anti-apartheid sanctions in the 1980s, South African wine was dealt the huge blow when it was removed from the international market, and for political reasons it was quite difficult for wine producers to market wine to the black majority. Things are finally looking up for the wine industry here, and quality has never been higher. South Africa produces a grape cloned from Pinot Noir and Cinsault, called Pinotage, which is the country's unique varietal. Chenin Blanc (known as Steen) makes up one-third of its vines. Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Shiraz are becoming increasingly popular as are Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.
