Fleur du Cap wins Regional Trophy at 2013 Decanter Asia

Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest 2011 has been crowned the best South African sweet wine in Asia after winning the Regional Trophy at the 2013 Decanter Asia Wine Awards (DAWA).

Sister to the famed Decanter World Wine Awards, the DAWA is Asia’s largest wine competition and received more than 2,300 entries in this year. The 2013 DAWA judging panel comprised 40 leading wine commentators from across Asia.

Undeniably one of South Africa’s top dessert wines, the much lauded Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest has stood up to critical acclaim in numerous prestigious international and South African wine competitions.

The line-up of international awards range from a trophy from the Decanter World Wine Awards in London earlier this year for Best South African Sweet Wine under £15 to a Gold Outstanding medal at the 2012 International Wine &Spirits Competition.

A gorgeous blend of Chenin blanc (76%), Sauvignon blanc (13%) and Chardonnay (11%), Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest 2011 shows beautiful aromas of raisins and marmalade with whiffs of typical dusty botrytis. Dried apricots and peaches meld with well-balanced acidity on the palate ending in a perfectly gorgeous aftertaste.

Fleur du Cap Noble Late Harvest 2011 is available at boutique wine stores and the Fleur du Cap cellar door at Die Bergkelder in Stellenbosch at around R119 per bottle.
