South African wines are well-known for going great with food. The wines are a mix of the Old World and the New World styles. Fruit forward, yet still restrained, plus enough structure and acidity to give you wines elegance. If you have not tried South African wines before you may want to try some for free, courtesy of the BCLDB. Below is the announcement about the free tasting and the wines that you will enjoy. I would particularly suggest you try the Glen Carlou and Spier wines.
