Creation The Art of Chardonnay 2016 among 2017 Sommeliers Selection Winners


Creation The Art of Chardonnay 2016 was recently selected as one of the winners in the 2017 Sommeliers Selection Wine Competition in the category ‘Elegant & Classy Whites’. This unique competition is judged solely by a panel of top South African sommeliers.

“Freshness, expression and elegance were attributes that stood out amongst this year’s winners at the Sommeliers Selection. The competition, now in its third year, has become one the most relevant and exciting competitions on the yearly calendar with its unique angle and approach. Lengthy and passionate discussions took place between the experienced sommeliers on the panel pertaining to the wines’ age worthiness, suitability to food, and the overall value for money. At the end, all wines awarded and selected for the wine list was ratified by one final re-tasting by the chair and the two heads of panel. The resulting selection of awarded wines are truly some of the best in the country, and something we can all proudly stand behind. Bravo!” –  Joakim Blackadder, chairman of the judging panel.
