By Christian Eedes, 1 October 2018
Winemag.co.za is pleased to announce the sixth annual Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Blend/Wooded Sauvignon Blanc Report now sponsored by precision agriculture service provider Aerobotics.
There are two sub-classes of entry: a) wines specifically labelled as blends and b) wines labelled as single-variety Sauvignon Blanc, barrels used at some point during vinification and permitted to contain up to 15% Semillon in line with official legislation.
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 are now closed. Results will be made public on Tuesday 13 November.
