Winemag.co.za is pleased to announce the sixth annual Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Blend/Wooded Sauvignon Blanc Report
There are two sub-classes of entry: a) wines specifically labelled as blends and b) wines labelled as single-variety Sauvignon Blanc, barrels used at some point during vinification and permitted to contain up to 15% Semillon in line with official legislation.
Wines will be tasted blind by a three-person panel consisting of Christian Eedes as chairman as well as Roland Peens and James Pietersen, both of Wine Cellar, Cape Town merchants and cellarers of fine wine. An entry fee of R862.50 including VAT per wine applies and entries close on Wednesday 17 October. Results will be made public on Tuesday 13 November.
The producer of the wine judged best overall will win a new 225-litre Sylvain Blanc barrel worth €829 (equivalent to R13 625 at the current exchange rate) from Tonnellerie Sylvain.
