Winemakers who specialise in Pinotage will concur that there is no bigger prize in the South African wine landscape than an ABSA Top 10 Pinotage Award.
On Tuesday 31 August, the winners were revealed at a prestigious event at the Grande Roche Hotel in Paarl.
The Pinotage Association, with loyal support from sponsors ABSA since the competition’s inception in 1997, organises this showcase on an annual basis with one goal in mind – the advancement and promotion of wines made from Pinotage grapes. The aim is to identify ten wines which will serve as a benchmark for the development of distinctive South African Pinotage, and to illustrate the uniqueness of our pride and joy in the international wine world.
After a few attempts, with our best result to date being a runner-up (one of the 20 finalists) with our 2013 vintage, we can finally say that the Beeslaar 2018 is an ABSA Top 10 winner!
This result is yet another jewel in the crown of the 2018 vintage, and we are very pleased to share the limelight with other legendary Pinotage producers.
