2022 was an eventful year for Lisse Garnett with her Top 10 wines of the year largely picked from her travels to Argentina, Hungary, South Africa, Greece, Portugal, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Colombia and Chile. Garnett writes here about events of the year which included the Real Wine Fair and Nedbank Cape Winemakers Guild Auction, as well as the mourning of a lost friend in the influential English restaurateur Andrew Edmunds.

As I write reeking and surrounded by fetid teens on our sixth day without water, I can honestly say that 2022 was a year of pain, some gain and what the ancient Greeks called anagnorisis. My first-year solo in twenty, I travelled to Argentina, Hungary, South Africa, Greece, Portugal, Denmark, France, Netherlands, Colombia and Chile and tried some mighty vini. As requested, I’ve whittled those wines down to ten. Ten wines that made me stop and think, ten wines that made me stop and drink.

Now to South Africa and a fantastic chance to compare the superb Savennières Les Vieux Clos 2019 – Nicolas Joly with several South African offerings which were shown at the Loire Valley Wines, Chenin Blanc tasting in London. This kind of open-minded, cross-cultural, single varietal tasting should be applauded and applaud I will – of the several South African examples shown, Radford Dale Vinum 2021, held its territory and at a miniscule fraction of the price of the sublimely sensual and impossible-to-source Joly.
Weighty, savoury and heady with herbs, this salted peach of a wine brings pear, citrus, even lychee fruit to a mineral-laden, precise, crystal-clear palate.
