A Trio of Trophies For Groot Constantia
Groot Constantia has scooped three awards at the prestigious 2015 Taj Classic Wine Trophy awards in Cape Town.
South Africa’s oldest surviving wine producing farm won a coveted Bacchus Trophy for its 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, the newly released 2013 Pinotage and the newly released 2013 Merlot. Groot Constantia and its winemaker Boela Gerber was awarded the prize for the Most Iconic Entry of 2015.
As a recent recipient of a 5-Star Platter Wine Award, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, which is already sold out, is no stranger to accolades - while the 2013 Merlot is unique as a re-introduced vintage.
“We are very excited and pleased to have won these awards in what is the first big competition of the year,” says Grant Newton, Marketing and Sales Manager for Groot Constantia.
“These latest accolades prove that Groot Constantia is the leading red wine producer in the Constantia region and back up everything that we have been doing in the vineyards to produce premium, award winning wines. Our wines, which are exported, have become an international brand ambassador for South Africa.”
Boela Gerber adds: “Central to the success of Groot Constantia is its terroir, enabling it to consistently produce wines of impressive quality over the years. People and their influences come and go but the terroir has remained the same and has allowed Groot Constantia to produce wine of exceptional quality over centuries, even though major changes in wine styles have been introduced over time.”
Groot Constantia’s wines continue to achieve outstanding results and these latest accolades put the total number of awards won by Groot Constantia since 2003 at an impressive 85.
