London gold for Strandveld Adamastor at IWSC 2015
Strandveld Vineyards’ signature cool climate white Bordeaux blend, Adamastor 2013, has triumphed with a gold medal at the London based International Wine & Spirit Competition 2015.
The judges singled out this Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon gem for its “freshly cut grass” notes that open up a “complex nose”, its “crisp character” from the “fresh acidity”, and the wine’s ability to mature further for another five to six years.
The 2013 vintage is without doubt basking in the spotlight, having been listed as one of UK Master of Wine Tim Atkin’s Best Bordeaux-style White Blends in his 2015 South African Wine Report with a 94 point rating. On the local wine front, it clinched 90 points in the 3rd RisCura White Hot Wine Awards, with the 2012 vintage securing 91 points.
The Strandveld Adamastor 2013 is available at top end wine outlets and boutique wine shops, selling for R145 at the cellar door. The wine can be purchased online at www.strandveld.co.za.
Open for wine tastings with the option of extending your stay in one of the welcoming guest cottages.
