Donovan Rall: six new releases from this South African star

Large-scale in height and talent but small-scale in production, Donovan Rall is a South African name to know. Tina Gellie caught up with the Swartland-based winemaker in a virtual tasting of his latest releases.

Donovan Rall burst on to the Cape wine scene just over a decade ago, when the inaugural 2008 vintage of his Rall White blend earned a five-star rating in South Africa’s Platter Guide wine bible.

He followed the feat up with two more five-star ratings in 2009 and 2010, firmly cementing this BFG (blond friendly giant) as one of the country’s new winemaking stars.
