The Warwick Trilogy 2006 has just been announced as one of the handful of GOLD medal recipients at the 2010 Classic Wine Trophy.
The 12th Santam Classic Wine Trophy took place in the first week of March, 2010. In association with leading French wine publication, La Revue du VIN de France, the competition is unique in two ways: wines are adjudicated by a panel of French judges and a limited number of only 17 medals can be won to ensure legitimacy and credibility for winners. The purpose of the competition is to recognize, reward and promote wines of elegance, balance and finesse. Wines should also show ability to age well. The Classic Wine Trophy is given to the most iconic entry, a wine made with patience and excellence.
La Revue du VIN de France will cover the event and ensure international exposure for the winners, and GQ Magazine SA will also award the GQ Choice Award to three medal- winning wines.
Amongst the panel of French wine personalities this year are Patrick Landanger of prestigious Burgundy producer, Domaine de la Pousse D’Or, as well as Laure Gasparotto, wine journalist and writer for French news magazine, Le Point.
The blind tasting of wines entered took place over four days at Mandela Rhodes Place. Winners and media are invited to an exclusive dinner and awards ceremony held on Friday, 5th March 2010 at the TAJ HOTEL, in Cape Town.
