RisCura Red Hot Wine Awards 2016: Call for entries
By Christian Eedes, 25 April 2016
In conjunction with RisCura, a global financial services provider, winemag.co.za is pleased to announce the second annual Red Hot Wine Awards featuring Bordeaux-style red blends, 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.
An entry fee of R450 per wine applies and entries close on Wednesday 11 May. Results will be made public on Wednesday 15 June.
The producer of the wine judged best overall will win a new 300-litre Selection barrel worth €843 (equivalent to R13 730 at the current exchange rate) from Tonnellerie Sylvain.
