Patriot wins Best Bordeaux Blend Trophy


15 October 2012

At the annual Wine of the Month Club Winemakers Awards lunch, Welbedacht Wine Estate’s newly released Patriot flagship blend was awarded the trophy for the Best Bordeaux Blend of the year.

The Wine of the Month Club awarded trophies to the wine farms for this years top cultivar and blended wines.

Trophy winners are chosen in a blind tasting of the 20 highest scoring wines they tasted trough out the year.


Schalk Burger Snr had the following to say about this wonderfull achievement: “ A Patriot is someone who loves his or her country and supports it loyally, as we do as the soil we also love the terroir of our Wine Estate. In making our best Estate blend we selected the best fruit our Estate had to offer of; Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot.

Then in our ground breaking cellar we allowed the fruit to come to the fore, so that, all our loyal supporter could share this limited release blend, called – Patriot.”
