2009 Cambalala Chardonnay Colombard
Benefiting from the freshness of the new vintage in South Africa, this is a typically lively, affordable Western Cape blend; with its undertones of guava, it makes for a juicy everyday quaffer.
2007 Villiera Brut Natural, Stellenbosch
I'm not convinced I could tell, tasting it blind, that this stylish and tangy South African blanc de blancs made from pure chardonnay, with its biscuity, honey-flecked mousse, wasn't Champagne. Could you?
£9.99, Marks & Spencer
2008 Morgenhof Estate Chenin Blanc, Stellenbosch
Made from old vine chenin blanc partly fermented in barrel, this is an exceptional Cape-meets-Vouvray dry white, rich in peachy flavours, finishing honeyed yet crisp.
