Over the past few years the Cape Blend wine category has become a sort after and dynamic wine style. Winemakers strive to create exceptional combinations with Pinotage as the centrepiece. The annual Perold Absa Cape Blend Competition aspires to encourage cellar masters to reach greater heights in this uniquely South African winemaking style.
The entry deadline for this year’s competition is set at 17 July 2020 and the judging will take place on 25 and 26 of August.
Since 2011 the Perold Cape Blend Competition has done much in helping to establish a respected field of endeavour and great ambassadors for the South African winelands on the world stage. Winemakers continue to push the envelope in developing wines that include Pinotage as the major component – top quality, interesting blends with the kind of complexity, balance and ageability that make for top wines that are truly South African.
