Shifting bounds reaps awards

Benguela Cove recently won five regional trophies at the 2019 SA National Young Wine Awards.

It took home the Boland Bank Trophy for the best red blend (wooded), the PJ Carinus Trophy for the best chardonnay, The Allan Bell Trophy for the best cabernet sauvignon (wooded), the Denel Trophy for best merlot (wooded) and, finally, the Vinfruco Trophy for the best overall red wine

The estate’s consistency and focus also earned it four gold medals and 13 silver. With healthy vineyards, a special terroir, a cellar that encourages creativity and a passionate winemaking team, one is headed for success.

Regarded as the new kid on the block, with a solid performance in 2018 and a proper warm-up to its newly built cellar in 2017, Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate did it again.

This diverse Walker Bay winery does not shy away from pushing the boundaries to showcase cool climate wines. The 2019 SA National Young Wine Show, now in its 187th year, offers a platform to test this ambition across board before the wine is in its final form.

Penny Streeter, owner of Benguela Cove, is overwhelmed by her winery’s success, and is super proud of her winemaking team.

“These awards are a huge accolade for our talented team, led by cellar master Johann Fourie, building a reputation for superb South African wine,” she said.

Fourie congratulated his team and explained that doing well for the third time around, following the success of the estate’s maiden vintage, is a huge feather in their cap. “Given our state-of-the-art winery and the estate’s amazing fruit source, I always knew the property was capable of producing outstanding wine, and we are very pleased this has been recognised.”
