RisCura logo-smallAnnouncing the third annual White Hot Wine Awards featuring Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon blends, convened by and sponsored by RisCura, a global financial services provider.

A tasting is proposed to identify the best in the country and producers are invited to submit. Conditions of participation are: 1) wines submitted must be current release or soon to be released (minimum stock requirement: 100 x 6 bottles) and 2) must be specifically labelled as blends (no wines labelled as “Sauvignon Blanc” but containing a fraction of Semillon to be accepted).

There is no entry fee and producers are welcome to enter more than one vintage – last year there were 41 wines from 33 different cellars.

Wines will be tasted blind by a three-person panel consisting of Christian Eedes as chairman as well as Roland Peens and James Pietersen, both of Wine Cellar, merchants and cellarers.

The results will be announced at an awards function on Thursday, 3 September and will appear on the website which attracts around 8 250 users a month.

Samples (two bottles per submission) to be delivered to 7 Clarendon Road, Mowbray between 08h30 and 15h30 on Wednesday 12 August.
