Recommended wine: Pinotage, Chenin Blanc, Riesling

Pinotage, Chenin Blanc, and Riesling are my top picks for African. The best wine for African dishes will depend on the dish, but a fruity, aromatic white wine is a safe bet for spicy dishes while pinotage would be a traditional match for South African cuisine. The Beeslaar Pinotage with a 4.8 out of 5 star rating seems like a good match. It costs about 50 dollars per bottle.

Offering lifted aromatics with notions of incense and a floral component, there’s a touch of spice and earthiness to the dark cherry and dark plum notes on the nose. Medium fuller bodied this has engaging fruit purity and concentration with a sleek texture and finer tuned tannins to the juicy dark berry fruit flavors. Weighing in at 14.5% alcohol by volume this maintains its freshness and vibrancy and fleshes out with aeration suggesting that this will age beautifully over a good number of years.
