KWV The Mentors Chenin Blanc

KWV The Mentors range has turned in a stellar performance, nationally and internationally, over the last 12 months.

2014 has produced an avalanche of trophies, platinums, double golds and golds for KWV The Mentors range. In addition, the wines have secured top ranking positions in seven competitions including the FNB Top 10 Sauvignon blanc, the Standard Bank Chenin Top 10, the Shiraz SA Wine Challenge and the 6 Nations Wine Challenge.

Some of the year’s highlights include an International Trophy and Gold at the Decanter World Wine Awards. Three trophies were picked up at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show, including the
Fairbairn Capital Trophy for the Most Successful Overall Producer.

But perhaps the pinnacle of recognition in 2014 has been three Double Golds for KWV The
Mentors at Veritas, in addition to KWV winning the Best Producer Award for a fourth year in a row.

These performances have demonstrated the ranges ability to score well against it’s peers, and also to demonstrate that KWV is not only helping define the stylistic evolution of South African winemaking, but also leading it.

The successes in 2014 come against the recent Drinks International report on the World’s 50 Most Admired Wine Brands which announced that KWV has moved from 35th to 32nd place in the rankings, leading all other South African wine brands.

“The success of our wines is mirrored by a continual stylistic evolution and the overall significance of terroir in our winemaking approach. We are delighted that our work is being recognised globally, and we will continue to refine our styles, focusing on vineyards that produce outstanding quality and reflect regionality. Our philosophy is to produce wines that show greater fruit purity, better structure, elegance and finesse,” says Johann Fourie, Chief Winemaker.

“Getting awards like these has been great, and is proof that KWV is moving in the right direction. Our success is due to the hard work and attention to detail by the entire team, from grape growers and viticulturists right through to the winemakers. We are looking forward to the new vintage releases of 2015, which are currently being bottled. We believe that they suit our philosophy perfectly and will once again be embraced by consumers and the industry,” he adds.
