I was back in South Africa again. It was winter, but it didn’t feel like it as I arrived in Franschhoek on a gorgeously sunny day, with a sky that seemed bluer than it ever gets in summer. There’s a quality to winter light that’s quite special. Everything seems laser sharp and vivid.   One of the advantages of travelling to South Africa from the UK is the lack of any jet lag. Yes, an 11 hour flight is an 11 hour flight, and it’s a long time to be on a plane. But as long as you get more than just an hour or two of sleep, you can land and hit the road running, without conking out mid-evening as so often happens with jet lag.

I was recently in South Africa for Cape Wine and managed to taste several vintages of the delicious Vin de Constance from Klein Constantia. I usually opt for a sweet wine at the end of a meal instead of a pudding and The Vin de Constance is a perfect way to end a meal. It's rich and opulent with stone fruits, vanilla and a hint of spice yet it is also fresh, balanced and has a long, moreish finish. Master of Wine, Tim Atkin, highly rated both the 2011 and 2012 in his most recent report on South Africa which is available to download for £15 on timatkin.com.
