The Absa Top 10 Pinotage wines are from 6 different wine regions, with the Stellenbosch and Paarl regions boasting the highest amount of winning wines with three and two wines respectively.
Beyers Truter, chairman and founder of the Pinotage Association, highlighted that Pinotage’s quality continues its upward curve and that the market for wines made from this cultivar continues to grow – locally and abroad. “The exceptional quality of the wines we’re seeing year after year shows us that producers, viticulturists and winemakers are pulling together,” says Truter. “In the end it’s all about being in touch with one’s terroir. Absa shares this opinion and has been a partner of the Pinotage Association for more than two decades. They also share our long term vision, which is one of Pinotage prospering worldwide.
