One of my favourite wino blogs is Christian Eedes’ What I Drank Last Night. In case you’re not aware, Christian was editor of Wine magazine and is a wine judge for the Veritas awards (amongst numerous others) as well as serving on the panel of John Platter’s Wine Guide. Well-respected, one might say.
These are his top dozen wines for 2011. “To appear on the list, they had to be from South Africa and in general circulation,” says Christian. “Some are established benchmarks, others are relative newcomers that I think show the way forward.”
