The 2015 vintage has been a tipping point for local and international consumers, as we realise that South Africa can play in the fine wine market. Accepted as the greatest modern-day vintage, 2015 produced balanced, structured and poised wines in Stellenbosch and across the Cape.
Early signs point to the fact that the drought-affected 2017 will be another exceptional vintage, providing local and international critics with incredible newsworthy wines.
WineCellar.co.za have released two investment portfolios, adding 20000 bottles of fine South African wine to the future secondary market.
With high inflation and a weak rand, producer inflation is higher than consumer inflation and, therefore, the value of South African wines is being positively repositioned in the market. Under these circumstances and adding to this the appreciation of older vintages, the Wine Cellar team of expert wine judges believe annual long-term returns of 10 to 20percent are achievable.
