Terroir Triumphs: Recognition for Robertson Wine Valley Cellars11 Aug 2017
The Novare SA Terroir Wine Awards, now in their 12th year, have grown to become a competition that is keenly contested. More than 320 wines were entered this year to be judged on how well they reflect their terroir or portray their wine-growing area. Entries are limited to wines from a single vineyard, estate, ward or small district.
"The Novare SA Terroir Wine Awards honours the wines which truly portray South Africa´s different wine growing areas. South Africa´s strict Wine of Origin rules for those producers who want to produce the terrain where the grapes come from on the label, made it possible to create this unique wine competition. Most entries are from the cellars´ boutique, reserve and ultra premium ranges...”
