There was a conversation over the weekend with a group of wine enthusiasts visiting us for a tasting about wine competitions. It centered around how does one find the light through the sea of competitions and awards out there. Some rather sage advice from a Cape Wine Master who was also at the tasting was to find a like minded commentator or judge and follow their commentary. As this might help in your wine decision making process.
At the moment we are in the midst of the awards and judging season. With a couple more awards to be announced in October, we are thrilled with the results achieved so far and are excited to share these with you. Along with some exclusive and very limited wine club online offerings.
The superlative 2017 Glen Carlou Collection Red Blend was awarded the National Red Blend Trophy at the Novare Terroir Wine Awards last month. These awards honour the wines which truly portray South Africa’s different wine growing areas.
With only 2660 bottles of The Red Blend made, we are delighted to announce that a limited number of cases have been released exclusively to our wine club members online only. A maximum of 6 bottles per member is available. Get online and order now!
Furthermore, Glen Carlou was amongst the Top 3 producers awarded at the Terroir Wine Awards after winning 5 district awards. These top district wine awards were for the following wines all made from Simonsberg-Paarl fruit:
