Showstopping moment for La Cave at Veritas and Platter’s

It has been an impressive year for our La Cave range. It has been reigning in the awards at all the major wine competitions! It would seem that our flagship range is simply not done taking centre stage.

At the 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide the range achieved no less than three 4 ½ stars and five 4 stars, and at the recent Veritas Wine Awards, one double gold, four gold and one silver outstanding medals.

Winemaker Francois van Niekerk says that feeling overjoyed is an understatement:

“We are rather speechless at just how recognised and awarded our wines have become. Especially the La Cave range, our flagship and our most precious. The range pays tribute to the early years of winemaking when wines were stored in underground chambers during maturation and the recent discovery of a series of chambers below our very own cellar. The grapes for the wines are meticulously hand-selected from the very best vineyards and handled with extreme care in the cellar. The wines are made with structure, balance, and complexity in mind and the ageability of these wines are evident when achieving awards for vertical vintages – an outstanding testament to the terroir of the Wellington Wine Valley.”
