South Africa 2019: Rall Wines New Releases
09 October 2020

To say that Donovan Rall is on a bit of a roll is an understatement. Tasting his latest collection of 2019s, it is not hard to see why he considers it, in several places, the best vintage he has ever made.

Despite a constant stream of critical support since breaking out on his own in 2008, he has never been afraid to continually tweak and refine his style, pursuing a vision of his own: one that continues to engage and excite lovers of the new South Africa. Like their creator, these wines are highly distinctive, produced through a lot of gut feeling and well-placed handshakes. His friendly personality and obvious viticultural and winemaking talent provides him access to the top South African vineyards, mostly but not exclusively in the Swartland, and amazingly, he seems to find a new edge every year. For all that though, Donovan is still a humble, garagista producer, and these 2019 releases go a long way towards achieving his long-term ambition to produce juicier, tauter, and more ageworthy wines, both red and white. And if any further endorsement were required, although less keen on the Cinsault Blanc, Jancis Robinson MW nevertheless describes it as “a completely brilliant set of wines.” High praise indeed!
