(Edited on 20 December. The Diners Club site list of winners stated that the winning wine is  Eagles Cliff ‘Arendskloof’ Pinotage 2017. Cape based wine writer Christian Eedes confirms the winning wine was the unwooded Eagles Cliff  Pinotage 2017. Eagles Cliff website says their Arendskloof Pinotage spends 48 months in barrel, so the 2017 vintage is still in barrel. Read Christian Eedes opionion of the winner at winemag.co.za )
