Announced: Platter’s 5-star wines for 2020
The Platter’s by Diners Club South African Wine Guide 2020 was launched at Cape Town’s Table Bay Hotel on 8 November 2019. Since its inception in 1980, Platter’s has offered information on most of the wineries and individual wines produced in South Africa, as well as useful information for learning about wine and travelling in the winelands. This makes it a book that appeals to wine experts as much as anyone wanting to uncover more about our country’s great wines, wine cellars and regions. In the 2020 edition, a total of 125 wines and one brandy achieved the coveted 5-star (95+ point) rating.
Publisher of Platter’s by Diners Club, Jean-Pierre Rossouw, says: “Our warm congratulations to all! These represent the pinnacle of South Africa’s wines, as all were highly rated in the initial sighted review and then went into a second round of tasting where they were assessed against their peers. Since this second round was conducted blind (without sight of the label), the stringency of this model means that our 5-star wines truly proved themselves as being best-of-best.”
