The 2015 SAWi Wine Excellence Awards recognises wines that have stood the test of time, based on the combined results a particular wine has achieved over a few vintages covering a minimum of three years in any of 84 different local and international wine competitions, including reviews and listings.

Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest was rated Platinum with a score of 95,8 out of 100 in this year’s index.

This golden nectar with its beautiful botrytis character and sweetness tempered in perfect balance by the subtle acidity, also boasts numerous international awards.
