We always love seeing our Joburg Wine Club partners get the recognition they deserve for their exquisite wines. So, we’re super proud to see them representing so strongly among South Africa’s Top 100 Most Highly Rated Wines.
To be eligible for the Classification, updated annually since 2004, wines must have earned good to excellent reviews from one or more of the top panels of judges for at least three vintages during the 10-year period under review (in this case, 2009 – 2018). The focus is on the country’s leading outfits, those regularly on top form, their wines judged top-notch again and again, year after year.
The critics include experts appointed for the Decanter World Wine Awards (UK), the International Wine Challenge (UK) and IWSC (UK), Platter's SA Wine Guide (5 Stars and Highly Recommended), the Six Nations Wine Challenge (AU), the Trophy Wine Show (SA), the Veritas Awards (SA) and the Michelangelo awards (SA) – to mention but a few.
Among these 100 wines, no less than 13 were produced by 5 of our Joburg Wine Club partners.
Here they are:
Sauvignon Blanc category
Petit Verdot category
Red Blends category
Unfortified Dessert category
Congratulations to all five of our partners on this truly remarkable achievement!
