Congrats to all the star-studded wineries at Platter 2017
published on:

Big and small, far and wide... with 94 Five Stars at Platter this year

The Platter guide was launched at the Table Bay hotel on Monday 31 October, and only 1 brandy achieved 5-star status - Boplaas.

The Winery of the Year went to Nederburg - wonderful to see a massive producer doing so well. They produce over 3 000 000 cases.. not too shabby to produce this quantity and quality! 

 JP Rossouw(Platters & Diners Club) with Nederburg Winery of the year winemakers Natasha Boks and Heinrich Kulsen.

 

The White Wine of the Year went to Stellenrust - congrats Tertius on his 51 Barrel-Fermented Chenin Blanc 2015 - a most delicious wine!

The Red Wine of the Year was awared to The Winery of Good Hope for the Radford Dale Black Rock 2014

The Dessert Wine of the Year again went to last year's Dessert winner - Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines - for their Straw Wine 2015.
