On 18 June 2016, the 2016 SAWi Wine Excellence Awards, at Grootbos Private Nature Reserve, will reveal which are South Africa’s consistently best performing MMCs.
Writing for BDLive, 6 May, Sue Blain quotes, among others, Peter Short, wine manager at Norman Goodfellows in Illovo, Johannesburg. According to Short there are “around 80 different French Champagne brands in the Norman Goodfellows stock range, and around 100 MCC or SA sparking wines”. Of the local bubblies, 20-odd have achieved a SAWi rating of 93+, allowing them to bear the coveted SAWi ‘Grand Wines Collection‘ label. In a first of its kind, and in the Methode Cap Classique sector, this full list will be unveiled on 18 June.
