De Wetshof honoured at SAA Wine Awards

Nov 14 2014 16:43

Robertson - De Wetshof Estate from Robertson flew high at this year’s SAA Wine Awards – not only were three of its wines selected or listing in the national airline’s premier class, but De Wetshof was also named Producer of the Year, winning the CEO trophy.

The three wines selected were the De Wetshof Méthode Cap Classique Brut 2008, De Wetshof Finesse Chardonnay 2014 and the Naissance Cabernet Sauvignon 2013.

For the 2015 SAA Wine Selection year, more than 800 wines were submitted by South African wine producers. A panel of the most distinguished, independent, local and international judges assessed the wines over a period of three days of blind tasting sessions.
According to De Wetshof wine maker Peter de Wet, the awards showed the Estate’s diversity – not only in the location of vineyard sites, but also in the wine styles it is making today.

“Having three wines selected by a panel of experts for the SAA wine list is a great achievement for the De Wetshof team,” he said. “But winning the CEO trophy for best producer is a wonderful accolade to receive, especially in light of the overall high standard of wine making the country is currently offering the world."

He said the inclusion of the De Wetshof Finesse underscores its reputation for Chardonnay.

“It was, however, a real honour to see our Méthode Cap Classique selected as we have only been producing this style since 2007 and it is an immensely competitive category at a time South African wine makers are making their best Cap Classiques ever,” he said.
