Another fantastic week has passed here at Highlands Road Estate, made sweeter with the news of our title win at the 2014 RisCura White Hot Wine Awards last week Thursday, for our Sine Cera 2012 white blend (Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc). Highlands Road was one of three estates to win the award with a 5/5 star rating, alongside Morgenster and Nitida
This was the second annual run of the event, which focuses on highlighting and awarding Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc blends in South Africa. This year, 41 entries were made by 33 different producers, and all underwent a blind tasting, from which three winners were chosen. Michael White proudly represented Highlands Road Estate at the awards, held at Tintswalo Lodge in Hout Bay, where guests were treated to a gourmet food and wine pairing created by Chef Franck Dangereux (The Foodbarn). All who attended agreed that it was a "top-class" event, and we look forward to attending them again.
