Stellenbosch is the second oldest wine region in South Africa (after Constantia), established in 1679. Made up of five wards whose characteristics vary greatly, the dominant feature of the zone is the influence of the atlantic breeze sweeping in and keeping a check on the African heat. Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot and Pinotage are the regions best known varieties, but Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are also seeing some measure of success. Vineyards at a little altitude, aided by the atlantic breeze, are producing wines that marry New World charm with old world elegance.
