The Sommeliers Selection offers a different perspective to other wine competitions and ratings. The wines are assessed exclusively by professionally trained sommeliers who evaluate entries as they would consider wines for designing a wine list.
Entries are judged for their food appropriateness and their gastronomical relevance. The judges look at stylistic approach to wines, regionality and price points. The South African Sommeliers on the panel all have extensive local and international judging and work experience. Their in-depth knowledge of international and local markets, and what the public is looking for in their drinking wines or pairing with food wines is considerable.
Glen Carlou has once again been listed on The Sommeliers Selection List 2019 with our 2019 Cape Town Sauvignon Blanc and 2018 Chardonnay. Since The Sommeliers Selection List inception in 2015, Glen Carlou Chardonnay has made the list every year. This year, the Glen Carlou Chardonnay 2018 was further marked as a ‘Stand Out Wine’– a wine which really wowed the judges.
