Roodeberg Red wins Double Gold in Japan
Roodeberg, the legendary South African wine that has been enjoyed the world over for more than 70 years, has brought home a Double Gold medal from the 7th SAKURA Japan Women’s Wine Awards 2020.
Judged solely by women in Japan with a tasting panel of 560 wine industry experts, and hailed the largest wine competition in Asia with over 4 300 entries, Roodeberg Red was awarded top honours for the 2018 vintage.
This famous blend of classic red varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Petit Verdot and Tannat, erupts in your glass with aromatic layers of red fruit, cassis and pencil shavings enriched by warm tones of tobacco and dark chocolate. The palate is elegant and well-rounded with nuances of cedar oak and dark plums, supported by soft tannins that linger long after the last sip.
Launched in 1949, Roodeberg is a true South African original that has stood the test of time. This contemporary classic is the heart and soul of memorable moments and is best enjoyed with friends and family over a hearty roast, around the braai or with your favourite chicken dish.
