SA’s best wines in 2020

SA’s best wines in 2020

Tokara named Winemag Winery of the Year!

Tokara’s 2017 Reserve Collection Stellenbosch Cabernet Sauvignon has just been named SA’s best red wine in 2020 and the 2018 De Morgenzon Reserve Chenin Blanc won the spot for best overall white.

During the course of 2020, the Winemag panel reviewed 927 wines across 20 categories in various reports sponsored by Prescient. Tasted blind over multiple days, these are some of the most rigorous tastings in SA.

Of the winners, one of our highlights is the B Vintners 2018 Liberté Pinotage. This wine is redefining the Pinotage narrative and is a revelation with its elegance and energy. Another wine which must be mentioned is the unique Flying Cloud 2018 Sovereign of the Seas. This vibrant, spicy and lively Pinot is from a well-established vineyard in the amazing high-altitude wine region of Outeniqua. For something different these are well worth seeking out.
