The results of the 2021 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show were announced on a special edition of Dan Really Likes Wine at midday on 30th June. Broadcast from The Houghton in Johannesburg. In total there were 673 wines entered. There were 32 gold medals – of which 16 won trophies – 111 took home silver and 355 won bronze.
The Berrio Sauvignon Blanc 2006 is a great example of how wines, carefully crafted, can age gracefully. As the oldest wine entered into the Museum Class, we are thrilled that it was awarded the Best of Museum Class Trophy.
