Avontuur Dominion Royale Shiraz awarded Top 100 medal

The whole Avontuur team was celebrating last night as we were awarded a Top 100 win for the 2011 Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve.  With this varietal leading the pack on the red wine side, 15 Shiraz’s were highlighted as good enough to sport the Top 100 award sticker!

Two years ago, the same wine, albeit an earlier vintage also made this impressive line-up, which seems to prove the point that South African Shiraz can hold it’s own anywhere in the world.

Avontuur’s premiere range of wines is named after some of their famous race horses and this wine proudly carries the name of our previous sire, who for many years represented the thoroughbred section of the Estate.  The wine itself is elegant rather than overbearingly alcoholic and spicy and although released only recently, already has a devoted following.

Winemaker Jan van Rooyen is thrilled with the award and would like to thank the cellar and vineyard teams for their hard work, as well as management for giving him the opportunity to produce this world-class wine.
