Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report 2019: Call for entries
By Christian Eedes, 27 May 2019
Entries for the fifth annual Cape Bordeaux Red Blend Report are now open – the style defined as wines made from two or more of the following varieties: Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot (no other varieties permitted).
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, Cape Town merchants and cellarers of fine wine.
Entries close on Wednesday 12 June and results will be made public on 9 July. For the rules and entry form, click here.
The producer of the wine judged best overall will win a new 300-litre Selection barrel worth €903 (equivalent to R14 600 at the current exchange rate) from Tonnellerie Sylvain.
