The 15th annual Muskadel SA Awards function, sponsored by Enartis SA, was held at Noop, Paarl on 25 May. Amongst 23 entries, five more than in 2016, Orange River Cellars from the Northern Cape was triumphant for the third consecutive year winning two platinum awards.
The Breederivier Valley was well represented by Du Toitskloof Cellar with their Du Toitskloof Cellar Red Muscadel 2014 being awarded platinum a second year running. 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.
Alvi’s Drift Wines from Worcester was the fourth wine to be awarded platinum at this year’s awards for their Alvi’s Drift Premium 2014.
