Paarl-Simonsberg varietals honoured

Four wineries from Paarl-Simonsberg produced national winners to secure top terroir accolades at the annual Novare SA Terroir Wine awards.

Paarl-Simonsberg was recently announced as the SA Terroir Top Area.

Wines from 14 different wine terroirs in the Cape Winelands were reviewed during this prestigious competition.

The four wineries include Anura, Babylonstoren, Glen Carlou and Mitre’s Edge.

Annelize Stroebel of the Drakenstein Local Tourism Association says the accolade is a tremendous achievement for the town.

“To be crowned as the top terroir in the country is a really exciting development and will mean so much for our local producers,” she said.

“Paarl has long been renowned for its award-winning wines, but this will definitely cement our reputation as a top quality wine producing region in the South African wine industry.”

According to Stroebel, it is especially significant that all four of the trophy winners are different wine varietals, including Chardonnay, Malbec, Petit Verdot and Viognier.

“Over the years Paarl has almost become synonymous with world-class Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, so it is great to see that other varietals are also starting to show their class,” she says.

“This accolade is the perfect opportunity to showcase that Paarl can hold its own against other wine regions.”

The Novare Terroir Wine Awards were established 13 years ago to assist in developing South Africa’s globally recognised wine industry.
