Growing Up ‘n Getting Wiser: South Africa in 2022

Returning after lockdown, I sought to take the temperature of South Africa’s ever-changing vinous landscape: walking vineyards, meeting winemakers and marvelling at wines that quicken the pulse.

I first heard about The Sportsman not long after it opened from a local friend, and it had only taken a couple of decades to visit. Thankfully, it did not disappoint.

2020 Tiberio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo

2020 Tiberio Montepulciano d'Abruzzo, 93 points

The 2020 Montepulciano d'Abruzzo seduces with a bouquet of crushed rocks, violets, lavender, blood orange and strawberry fruits. It envelops the palate with textural, ripe wild berries, fine minerality and a crunchiness towards the close. A stunning and a wonderfully complete Montepulciano. (EG)
