De Grendel takes home 13 Awards at the Veritas Awards 2016

De Grendel scooped a total of 13 Veritas Awards at the 26th Veritas Awards.

Most notably, Double Gold for De Grendel Shiraz 2015 and Gold for De Grendel Shiraz 2014.
The Veritas Awards is one of South Africa’s most prestigious consumer-oriented wine competitions run by
the industry for the industry.
“Achieving Double Gold for De Grendel Shiraz 2015 was particularly rewarding for me. This was a fantastic
vintage and we managed to produce one of the best Shirazes we have ever made,” says De Grendel
cellarmaster Charles Hopkins. “Analyses on last year’s juice indicated lower nitrogen levels. This also
reflected in the vineyards with less vigorous growth as well as smaller clusters and berries. A definite plus
for red wine colour and quality,” he says.
The Double Gold winner, De Grendel Shiraz 2015, is available online at www.degrendel.co.za, at the De
Grendel Tasting Room and at the De Grendel Restaurant.
