Wine that’s just begging to be shared!

Any good bottle of wine begs to be shared, so we’re sharing our new faves, a string of Robertson Winery beauties that triumphed at the 6th annual Gold Wine Awards, Winemag.co.za’s Best Value Shiraz Tasting, and the 2018/19 Ultra Value Wine Challenge.

Validating Robertson’s reputation as a producer of excellent wines at affordable prices, these successes included walking off with five Gold medals at the 2019 Gold Wine Awards: for: Robertson Winery Chenin Blanc 2019, Sauvignon Blanc 2018, Chardonnay 2018, Beaukett 2018 and Merlot 2018. Robertson’s Shiraz 2018 was placed in the Top 5 and joint second at the Winemag.co.za’s Best Value Shiraz Tasting; and their Beaukett 2018 was placed in the Top 14 highest-scoring wines at the 2018/19 Ultra Value Wine Challenge.
