• Tim Atkin Master of Wine 2021 Special Report Scores

    Tim Atkin is an award-winning wine writer and Master of Wine, with over 30 years’ experience and a strong international following.

    He has just published his 9th report on South African’s wine scene with over 1200 tasting notes of wines he rates as the very best that South Africa offers, and this is what he had to say:-

    What South Africa has achieved, not just since 1994, but in the nine years that I have been writing this report is truly remarkable. No other wine industry has made such strides, no other wine industry possesses such energy or excitement. Right now, and in the face of the huge challenges the country faces on many fronts, it’s important not to lose sight of that achievement.

    Wildekrans submitted 2 wines for this edition, and we are extremely proud that both received such high ratings and praise. It’s a testament to the hard work, dedication, and talent of our team, even in the most challenging of times.

    Wildekrans Cape Blend Barrel Select Reserve 2019

    90 points

    “This is an appealingly unusual blend of Pinotage with 42% Cabernet Franc, Tempranillo, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah, all sourced from Bot River. Rosemary and tangerine aromas segue into a palate that’s savoury and meaty with sinewy tannins and subtle oak. 2022-25”

    Wildekrans Chenin Blanc Barrel Select Reserve 2020

    92 points

    “Something of a below-the-radar property in Bot River, with very good vineyards and the wine quality to match, Wildekrans is worth seeking out. Rich, wild and exotic, this has grapefruit and peach fruit, stylish oak and a tangy, stony, mouth-watering finish. 2021-25”

    We are really grateful for this recognition.
