The wine making customs of South Africa frequently signify a hybridisation of Yesteryear wine-making as well as the new. When Apartheid ended, numerous wine makers are already focusing on making a lot more “worldwide” types of wines which can be profitable around the global market. Flying wine-makers from California, Spain and France have introduced new methods and fashions into SA. Within the eighties, the usage of oak casks for fermentation and maturing came into common use. The use of adding sugar (chaptalisation) is against the law in South Africa. The country’s warm Mediterranean climate tends to make it easy for reaching adequate alcohol and sugar quantities. Wine-makers more frequently experience lower levels of acidity which call for the use of extra acids, E.g. tartaric acid.
