Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 Announced

Once again the Breedekloof Wine Valley is proud to announce that two of our wineries are in the Top 10 Sauvignon Blanc awards:

  • Du Toitskloof Land’s End Sauvignon Blanc 2018 (Wooded)
  • Merwida Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Sauvignon Blanc South Africa and FNB have revealed the winners of the 2019 FNB Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 competition with no less than eight out of the 10 victors being from the 2019 vintage. This exciting result for South Africa’s only competition exclusively devoted to Sauvignon Blanc emerged at a gala awards dinner on Wednesday 9 October, held at the FNB Portside building in Cape Town.

The Top 10 were drawn from a broad collection of entries this year, with 107 producers submitting 183 wines. The country’s diverse wine growing regions were well represented with five out of the six regions in the Western Cape delivering at least one wine in the top 20. A total of 12 of the top 20 wines were from the 2019 vintage, confirming the industry consensus that this year was an outstanding year for Sauvignon Blanc.
