Top Ten South African Red Wine Values Under $20

As we noted in our recent Special Report on South African Value Wines, South Africa produces inexpensive wines of very good quality. Here we list our favorite red wine values—wines priced under $20 showing an especially high ratio of quality to price.  Perhaps not surprisingly, South Africa’s unique red wine grape—Pinotage—accounts for fully half of the list, including a spectacular specimen from Warwick. As we noted in an earlier article, the producer Citrusdale appears to be an up and coming star in South African value wines.  Also, see our earlier article on South African White Wine Values Under $20.
