Absa Top 10 Pinotage 2019 Winners

Congratulations to the three producers in our portfolio who made the Top 10.

Beyerskloof claimed their 9th trophy in the competition with their Beyerskloof Winemaker's Reserve Pinotage 2017. Simonsig achieved the 7th trophy for Simonsig Redhill Pinotage 2017. Diemersdal Pinotage Reserve 2018 is the only wine from Durbanville and it's their 8th trophy for this wine.

The Absa Top 10 Pinotage winners represent the best of South African Pinotage and also serve as a reminder of the quality of South African wine as a whole.

Coming Soon: The Haute Collection

Haute Cabrière will be launching a new range.

The maiden release of The Haute Collection incorporates two wines for the 2017 vintage - Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. The word “Haute” is a denotation of the highest culmination of an art form. It has more than one meaning for Haute Cabrière; high-quality wines produced high up on the Franschhoek Pass and renowned specialists in the art of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Second generation Cellar Master Takuan von Arnim says “With this range I truly want to express terroir.”
