The annual Platter’s by Diners Club Wine Guide has revealed their prestigious list of wines earning the maximum rating of five stars in the new 2022 edition.

I’m extremely proud and satisfied with yet another stellar result coming our way – our Pinotage 2019 is officially a Platter’s 5-star winner!

Wines receiving the sought-after five-star rating in Platter’s must undergo a rigorous process of sighted and blind assessment (i.e. with and without sight of the label) by a team of experienced experts. Bottlings that are judged to be “Superlative, a South African classic” are given the highest ranking of five stars, equal to 95 points or better on the 100-point rating scale.

Of the 234 wines that received the 5-star rating, only 7 were from the Pinotage category.

It is a tremendous honour for me to receive this acknowledgement of quality, which is arguably the cherry on the cake following all the other successes this wine has achieved over the past year.
