    Kanonkop won two Gold Outstandings, for their Black Label Pinotage vintages 2010 AND 2012.

    Interesting to note that in the Pinotage category there was a winner from Canada. :)

    Oh, oh. The spam catcha asks me to name the object in the image, and there’s a chicken in a red circle. But what’s the correct answer? Chicken, Hen, Cock, Fowl, Gallus gallus domesticus, or do we have to identify the type? Bantam, Rhode Island Red ….?
