The Blends of Waverley Hills

October 25, 2019

The year is almost at its end, but it is still not the end at Waverley Hills for achieving awards. Most recently it was our Rhône style and Bordeaux style blends receiving awards! It seems as if our cellar master, Johan Delport, has mastered the art of blending. At the Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge 2019, our De Huijsbosch 2017 won a gold award. And it is not all for our Cabernet Sauvignon / Cabernet Franc / Merlot Blend, because it also received a Veritas 2019 Silver award, as well being selected by the Sommeliers Selection 2019 Wine List.

However, it wasn’t just our De Huijsbosch blend that made us proud. Waverley Hills’ well-known Rhone-style Blend also reeled in three more awards – A gold from Gilbert & Gaillard International Challenge, a gold from Michelangelo International Wine & Spirits Competition and lastly a third gold from Veritas.

This SMV 2014 (Shiraz / Mourvèdre / Viognier) is doing its predecessors proud and now have a total of eight top International awards from 3 different countries since its release eleven months ago.
