Question: This year I discovered several South African wines including the top Chenin Blancs from Ken Forrester and quality Chardonnays like Hamilton Russell from the Hemel-en-Aarde Valley. Is there a reference book or online site to help me make some further choices?
Answer: Yes, you found two outstanding wines you mention. Widen your selections by getting the annual 2024 Platter’s South African Wine Guide – though many of the highest-scoring wines are probably not available in your retail market. Your scribe enjoys and highly recommends the excellent website (plus free newsletter) of Mike Froud at topwinesa.com. Check it out.
