Platinum for the 3rd Consecutive Year
The 16th annual Muskadel SA Awards function, sponsored by Enartis SA, was held at Noop, Paarl on 24 May. Amongst 31 entries, seven more than in 2017, Du Toitskloof Wines took home a Platinum award for the 3rd consecutive year.
"Du Toitskloof Wine Cellar in the Breede River Valley has been a constant performer over the past three years at the Muskadel SA Awards and this year was no exception with their Du Toitskloof Red Muscadel 2015 winning well deserved platinum. This 100% Muscat de Frontignan with a plain, yet striking label and excellent aging potential is a definite must for the cold winter nights ahead.
With an impressive assortment of past and present awards in their trophy case, winemaker Shawn Thomson believes that their secret to success is the single vineyard Muscat de Frontignan from Peet Smith’s farm, Dagbreek.
“Low yield, high concentration, top quality grapes combined with passion and patience in the cellar is the key word. Good team = great wine,” says Thomson.
