Beyerskloof Wine IWSC Pinotage Trophy

To London’s Guildhall to present winemaker Anri Truter with the Abraham Perold Pinotage Trophy at the International Wine and Spirits Competition 2018 awards ceremony held on Wednesday 14 November.

The Pinotage Trophy was presented to Anri by Peter May representing The Pinotage Association, sponsors of the Trophy, and IWSC President Facundo L Bacardi, for the Beyerskloof ‘Diesel’ Pinotage 2014.

Anri Truter was called back to the stage again later that evening to collect the Blended Red Wine Trophy for Beyerskloof ‘Faith’ 2014. There cannot be a wine producing country that doesn’t produce a red blend, yet again South African wine makers confidence in the Pinotage based Cape Blend concept was rewarded by beating all comers. Faith 2-14 is a blend of 34% Pinotage, 33% Cabernet Sauvignon and 33% Merlot.

Applauding Anri’s triumph in the Guildhall was Beyerskloof owner Beyers Truter and Managing Director Barnie van Straten.

  • Bartinney for Hourglass Chardonnay 2017 (Chardonnay Trophy)
  • Oldenburg for Oldenburg Merlot 2015 (Merlot Trophy)
  • Spier for 21 Gables Chenin Blanc 2018 (Chenin Blanc Trophy)
