The Platter’s by Diners Club South African Wine Guide 2015 was launched at a gathering of the who’s who of the wine industry at Cape Town’s Mount Nelson Hotel last night. Diners Club and Platter’s are delighted to announce that the Swartland-based Sadie Family Wines is the Guide’s Winery of the Year for a historic second time. The winery first took the honour in 2010 and it is the only winery to emerge from this year’s stringent judging process with three maximum five star ratings for the 2015 edition of Platter’s. Congratulations further go to De Trafford Blueprint Syrah 2012, hailed as Red Wine of the Year, and DeMorgenzon Reserve Chardonnay 2013, celebrated as the White Wine of the Year. The 2015 guide features 50 five star wines and one new five star brandy.
