De Grendel’s unique Elim Shiraz 2019 has made history with the highest score ever achieved in the Veritas Awards, South Africa’s highly respected and longest-running wine competition.
De Grendel capped its 300th anniversary year with the achievement of a new milestone – a remarkable four five-star ratings in the 2021 Platter’s South African Wine Guide.
We’re celebrating! De Grendel wines raked in a fantastic five 90-plus scores from respected wine commentator Tim Atkin MW in his 2020 South Africa Special Report, including an outstanding 93 points for our flagship Amandelboord Pinotage 2019.
Unique in its cool-climate origin and unique in character, De Grendel Elim Shiraz 2018 has been named in the Top 10 in the Prescient Shiraz Report 2020 by Winemag.co.za – adding to its Top 12 status in the 2020 Shiraz SA Challenge recently.
De Grendel Elim Shiraz 2018 is a Top 12 champion in the 2020 Shiraz SA Challenge, maintaining the impressive track record of a distinctive wine that continues to attract accolades.
De Grendel has earned its first Platter’s five-star rating with the 2017 Elim Shiraz, reaping the rewards of a near-perfect vintage and the wine-growing potential that cellar master Charles Hopkins saw more than 20 years ago in the cool maritime climate close to Africa’s southern tip of Cape Agulhas.
