Prescient Rosé Report 2023: Rules and entry form

  • Only still wines are eligible.
  • All types of rosé are eligible, “rosé” defined as a wine incorporating some colour but not enough to qualify it as a red wine. Production methods allowed include: 1) direct pressing of red wine grapes; 2) short maceration of red wine grapes; 3) saignée – bleeding off of juice; 3) blending of juice from red and white wine grapes; and 4) white wine aged in vessels previously used to mature red wine. Wines labelled as “Blanc de Noir” are automatically allowed.
  • Wines must be certified as South African.
  • Wines entered must be current release or soon to be released (minimum stock requirement: 100 x 6 bottles). Producers may enter as many different wines as they see fit.
  • Entries close Wednesday 15 November.
  • An entry sample takes the form of two bottles plus a fact sheet. Samples must be delivered to 44 Liesbeek Road, Rosebank, Cape Town between 08h30 and 15h00 on Thursday 16 November. LATE SUBMISSIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED.
  • In the event a wine achieves Top 10 status, 18 bottles must be set aside at no charge, these to be served at promotional events.

An entry fee of R1250 including VAT per wine applies and you will be directed to our online shop to make payment after you have completed the entry form below. Please note that if you want to enter multiple wines, each will require a separate form although payment can be made all at once.
