The South African Wine Index Awards were hosted at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve and we were lucky enough to be invited to the award ceremony. We are very proud to announce that our wines showed exceptionally well.
We had two of our flagships in the line-up – the Shiraz and the Viognier.
Our Shiraz achieved Top Shiraz in the Category Awards with a 100 point rating as well as Highest Score Achieved for a Noble Red produced in South Africa whilst our Viognier won Top Viognier in the Category Awards with 96.6 rating.
Our Merlot fell into the “Excellent Wine of Distinction” or “Exceptionally Outstanding” with a score of 93.1 whilst the Shiraz and Viognier, scoring above 95, fell into the “Superlative Top Class Masterpiece”.
The South African Wine Index was established with the main aim of independently identifying South Africa’s best wines. They use an “Algorithm of excellence” to measure the performance of each wine in each category – this takes awards, listings, reviews and any other accolades bestowed on a wine and express this as a single value out of 100.
We are very proud to have featured so highly.
