The judges’ task was unusually arduous with most places hotly contested. The selection process was thorough and rigorous, as it always is. Greater numbers of fine-wine entries intensify pressure for the limited category wines.  Each and every wine was objectively and independently assessed with great care and professional diligence.  The process was gruelling and from the stellar line-up of great South African wines, Flagstone’s fine wine reached the podium. 

Hats off to Flagstone’s ongoing success story and well done to the winemaking team!
