New Talent and timeless stars

The presentation of trophies and gold m
edals for The 2023 Trophy Wine Show brought to you by Investe c
was hosted at Delaire Graff on 8 th June. This was the first of the competition’s 22 awards functions to be
hosted in the Winelands rather than in the Mother City.

The judging took place in the week of 15
th May where the judges (including Jancis Robins on MW OBE,
Anne Krebiehl MW and Benjamin Roffet, who were flown to South Africa especially for the event) and
associate judges reviewed 688 wines . Their deliberations yielded 19 best in class trophies including 4
Museum C lass trophies, from 32 gold medals, 86 silver medals and 320 bronze awards. With 36 % of wines
receiving no medal at all the show continues to remain true to its objective which is to be the most rigorous
wine competition in the world. As many of South Africa’s producers have ruefully admitt ed “a medal, any
medal, at the Trophy Wine Show is an achievement to be proud of.”

This is the second year the show has enjoyed headline sponsorship by Investec
whose private bank has
been judged the Best Private Bank and Wealth Manager in South Afric a at the Financial Times of London’s
Global Private Banking awards. The partnership unites Investec’s visionary “Out of the Ordinary” approach
with the competition’s commitment to identifying South Africa’s best wines.

The silver and gold medal and trophy winning wines will be available for public tasting for a single night only
in Johannesburg on 14 th June and Cape Town on 21 st June. Wines will be available for sale via the Show’s
online fulfilment partner, Port2Port, which will also be represented at th e two tastings. Winning wines will
also be offered at a series of Masterclass® tastings hosted by Investec for the banks’ corporate and high
net worth clients over the course of 2023 at a number of venues around South Africa. (The winning wines
from the 20 22 competition were shown as Masterclasses® in Cape Town, Pretoria, Johannesburg, East
London, Plettenberg Bay , George and at Wine on Water in St Francis Bay
