The countdown to the announcement of the 2016 FNB Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 winning wines has begun. A panel of wine experts are gathered at the Vrede en Lust Estate this week to scrutinize 169 contestants for top honours.
The Top 10 jury, convened by seasoned winemaker and family estate proprietor Neil Ellis, includes wine journalist, Christian Eedes, winemakers, Wilhelm Pienaar and Narina Cloete as well as Cape Wine Master, Winnie Bowman. Two protégé tasters, Chandré Petersen and Sacha Muller, have joined the panel to gain invaluable tasting and judging experience.
A total of 20 carefully-selected finalists will be revealed after the judging has been concluded. The highly-anticipated Top 10 will be unveiled during an awards luncheon at Nooitgedacht Estate in Stellenbosch on 14 October.
The Sauvignon Blanc Top 10 competition is proudly sponsored by FNB, which has supported the competition since its inception in 2007.
