Triple Platinum for De Krans wines
De Krans Wine Cellar in Calitzdorp received three Platinum Awards at the 2017 South African Wine Index (SAWi) Awards, which took place in June at the Grootbos Private Nature Reserve. The awards were received for the cellar’s Cape Vintage Reserve, Cape Tawny and Touriga Nacional.
The SAWi was established in 2009 with the aim of independently identifying South Africa’s best wines. The competition measures the performance of individual wines, across multiple vintages, and compares and condenses the results from more than 100 multinational competitions, reviews and listings.
Earlier this year the Cape Vintage Reserve and Touriga Nacional received recognition at the National Wine Challenge / Top 100 SA Wines competition, with both wines earning a spot on the coveted Top 100 SA Wines list as well as each being awarded Double Platinum.
