Cellarmaster Hagen Viljoen and Winemaker Charles Lorens were thrilled to receive the 2022 FNB Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10 Blanc Award for our Z Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021. Winners were announced on Thursday 13 October at a special awards function.
The announcement coincides with the release of the new Z Collection labels inspired by the gable of our iconic manor house. Sauvignon Blanc SA’s Chairman RJ Botha noted that this year’s Top 10 wines were particularly striking and exciting. Following the recent Winemag review where the Z Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2021 was rated 94 points, the team is extremely proud of its performance thus far. This wine will be available to purchase later in the year.
In addition, our Estate Sauvignon Blanc 2022 and 7even Sauvignon Blanc 2022 were included in the top 20 finalists in the 2022 FNB Sauvignon Blanc SA Top 10 competition, giving us an unprecedented 3 wines in the running for this competition.
