A few years ago I had a South African sparkling wine at the now-defunct wine bar Hayes and Vine, here in San Francisco. It was the one they were pouring by the glass that day and all I noticed of the name was that it included "Stellenbosch," which I'm told is sort of like seeing "Napa" on a California red--it doesn't narrow it down much. It was very dry and yeasty, absolutely delicious, and I've never seen it again--I don't think South African wines have great distribution in the SF Bay Area. Anybody have any thoughts on what I should try that might match that vague memory?
