The International Wine Challenge, the world's most influential and rigorously judged wine competition, has announced its 30 best wines from around the world. Winners from fourteen countries were named the top wines having proven themselves to be the absolute finest in their categories following an intensive blind-tasting.
Six of these outstanding wines have been named Champion winners by the International Wine Challenge Co-Chairs, a group of six of the very best wine tasters in the world.
Groot Constantia Wine Estate's Sauvignon Blanc 2019 won the International Sauvignon Blanc Trophy, the first time in ten years that the award hasn't been won by either the Loire or New Zealand.
Awarding a Gold Medal, the judges wrote "Zesty, green and lively, with capsicum, pea shoots, wax and grass aromas. The palate is fresh, elegant and juicy, yet poised and pristine. Savoury on the finish. Quietly complex and very elegant. - Panel Chair: Susan Hulme MW | Co-Chair: Helen McGinn"
