Quality Drink Award for Pinotage

Pinotage won the £5-£9.99 category in the UK 2008 Quality Drinks Awards. The winning wine is Morrison's ‘The Best’ South African Pinotage. This is an own-label for Morrison's supermarkets, made by Bellevue Estate where it is available as part of their new empowerment project wine range under the Sizanani label.

Judges commented on the wine “This is something of a ‘love it’ or ‘hate it’ style of wine – but this one’s a winner”, “It is lovely, smooth and fruity”, and “the acceptable face of Pinotage.”

The annual Quality Drink Awards are dedicated to promoting and rewarding excellence and innovation in the UK alcoholic drinks market. This year's event once again recognised outstanding products within the industry and acknowledged the top performers across 21 hotly contested categories.
