    It’s hardly a list of what one would think of as the better Cape wines… This competition, more than most, doesn’t attract anything except the desperate, on the whole, does it? It is noticeable that KWV seems to enter just about every competition that is going, important or not which is surely more a sign of cynicism than of confidence in quality. In fact, is there anything more depressing in the wine world than these ghastly lists of medal winners? While the organisers walk away with the loot and the producers are left with hefty bills and a handfuls of stickers, confused winelovers are left with what? Nothing of any value whatsoever.

      After his Concourse Mondial rant I can’t wait to hear Tim’s thoughts about KWV’s successes at the Decanter World Wine Awards. I’m sure he won’t disappoint.
      And surely he has something profound to add about the Australian passing the baton back to a South African as the chief winemaker at KWV.
      Come on Tim, don’t disappoint.
