The Beachhouse Sauvignon Blanc Makes Waves at Michelangelo Awards 2019

The Beachhouse Sauvignon Blanc, produced by South Africa’s foremost independent wine & spirits producer DGB (Pty) Ltd, joined the cream of the crop at the recently announced Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits Awards by winning a much coveted Gran d’Or or double-gold medal, an honour reserved for this prestigious competition’s top-performing wines.

The Beachhouse is a brand that is synonymous with a lifestyle of relaxation and enjoyment. Wine Marketing Director Jacques Roux says, “The Beachhouse is a ‘mood wine’ that evokes the carefree  feeling of being on a summer holiday, even if you are not on the beach, and we all know that soothing setting one longs to escape to when life’s pressures get too much.” 

Winemaker Jaco Potgieter says the Sauvignon Blanc is blended from stand-out vineyard sites in the Breedekloof/Worcester, Robertson and Bonnievale regions. Each vineyard brings its own distinctive flavour profile to the eventual wine, and this creates a balanced, well-rounded wine that merges all the typical characteristics lovers of Sauvignon Blanc associate with and adore about the variety – a crisp, lively acidity, succulent tropical fruit, and greener grassy notes. A dash of Semillon adds further richness to the mouthfeel and impressive length on the finish.

Potgieter notes that the winning 2019 vintage served up healthy, expressive grapes with a balanced technical make-up. The 2019 vintage was an early harvest, preceded by ideal moderate weather conditions during the growth cycle. He attributes The Beachhouse ’s appeal to its outstanding drinkability and all-round refinement. “For us The Beachhouse is all about joy and recreating that relaxed “frame of mind”. Whether you enjoy this Sauvignon Blanc nicely chilled by itself or with food, especially seafood, it will offer you sheer drinking pleasure. It is the perfect wine for summer and al-fresco entertaining.”

A wine that has consistency been a favourite among local and international wine consumers, The Beachhouse Sauvignon Blanc has with this magnificent achievement underscored its quality and exceptional value for money proposition. The Beachhouse Sauvignon Blanc is currently the best-selling South African Sauvignon Blanc in the USA, the biggest wine market in the world but also a particularly challenging one for foreign brands to break into. This feat also shows that you can make fine wine in large quantities, something Potgieter says he and the entire team behind The Beachhouse is incredibly proud of.

The Michelangelo double-gold winning The Beachhouse Sauvignon Blanc is available at leading wine retailers countrywide. Get it now – it is going to be the ultimate wine to chill with this summer.
