Your wine shopping list from the Old Mutual Trophy Tasting

In no particular order, here are the SuperFAN Picks from the 2014 Old Mutual Trophy Tasting.

SuperFAN Linda Kemp

  • De Grendel Shiraz (in my opinion better than the trophy-winning Super Single Vineyards Mount Sutherland Syrah – try saying that 4 times quickly)
  • De Krans 2011 Vintage Reserve Port (absolutely amazing stuff)
  • Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon
  • Nederburg Brew Master Bordeaux Blend
  • Nederburg Eminence Dessert Wine
  • Saronsberg Provenance Shiraz
  • Spier 21 Gables Pinotage
  • Delaire Graff Sauvignon Blanc
  • Highlands Road Sauvignon Blanc (oaked museum class, really interesting flavours)
  • Noble Hill Viognier
  • Woolworths The Hutton (I think this is a Spier wine made for Woolworths)

Splurge:

  • Steenberg Magna Carta (Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend, absolutely amazing but at more than R400 per bottle)
  • Nederburg Private Bin R172 Pinotage 2010 (this only won silver but I absolutely loved it. R249 per bottle)

 

SuperFAN Stephen Brierly

  • Stellenrust Chenin Blanc
  • Delaire Graaf Sauvignon Blanc

 

SuperFAN Brian Arentsen (Bargainstein)

  • Baleia Bay Chardonnay (Gold Medal winning , judiciously wooded, undoubted find of the show and at just R49 a bottle through Makro – Bargainstein filled his boots!)

 

There you have it, get shopping!
