Roxton Black 2017 Maiden Release Receives 90 Points From Acclaimed British Master of Wine, Tim Atkin

Staying true to its bold and powerful persona, the Roxton Black 2017 vintage has recently been awarded 90 points in the much-anticipated 2020 South Africa report by British Wine Master, Tim Atkin. 

Now in its 8th edition, the annual report covers everything from climatic impact, political influence, and of course, the devastating effects COVID-19 has had on the South African Wine Industry, and has become a valuable benchmark for growers, producers and consumers alike. Brampton is therefore thrilled to have received this score on the maiden release of Roxton Black.
