An assessment of the  wines to be sold at this year’s Cape Winemakers Guild auction was completed yesterday, the first time ever that local commentators have had the opportunity to do this in a blind tasting. WINE magazine coordinated the exercise and those participating included Michael Fridjhon of Business Day, Tim James of The Mail & Guardian and Grape.co.za, Neil Pendock of the Sunday Times, Christine Rudman of Die Burger and Beeld and me.

Whereas WINE magazine normally arrives on a rating underpinned by an arithmetic average but also taking into account post-tasting discussion, in this case the five judges operated independently. Each will be reporting on his or her findings in due course, Pendock having already uploaded a post on his blog (see here). Look out for my scores which will coincide with delivery of the WINE magazine newsletter on Wednesday next week (subscribe here).
