International wine critic and commentator Tim Atkin MW is upbeat about the South African wine industry and says it is “producing the greatest wines in its history” despite the prevailing economic and structural setbacks faced by many.  The reasons, he believes, are: “Better viticulture and site-selection, superior virus-free plant material and a broader palette of grape varieties.”  

In his just-released 319-page 2023 South Africa Report, now in its 11th annual edition, he contends that the country’s whites are “some of the best on the planet” and claims “the Cape has eclipsed the Loire Valley as the source of the world’s best dry Chenin Blancs”.  Meanwhile, its reds “are now a match for … its world-class whites”.

Steenberg’s signature Lady R Cap Classique and The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc, both flagship wines of this idyllic farm in the Constantia Wine Valley, garnered high acclaim once again in Tim Atkin’s South Africa 2022 Special Report.

With medals of excellence and scores of 93/100 for Steenberg Lady R Cap Classique and 92/100 for Steenberg The Black Swan Sauvignon Blanc for the last three consecutive vintages, Atkin underlines the consistency of these top tier wines.
