2017 Top 100 Results Released!

Rustenberg Wines has once again featured prominently in the National Wine Challenge’s Top 100 South African Wines, with 5 wines on the list, and coming third overall in the rankings.

The wines making the Top 100 and being awarded Double Platinum Status are:

Top 100 / Double Platinum:

  • Peter Barlow 2013
  • Five Soldiers 2015
  • John X Merriman 2014
  • John X Merriman 2015
  • Red Muscadel 2015

We are especially pleased to have our top wines featured in the Top 100, and two vintages of the John X, but especially pleased for the newest wine in our line-up, the Red Muscadel, to have made the list.

The John X Merriman has also been awarded one of the coveted Wine Consistency Awards, for being featured on the Top 100 list for 4 years. It is a wonderful achievement for our John X Merriman to receive this award, as we have always felt that this is the wine that best represents the estate and Rustenberg’s red wine-making style as a whole.

Several of our wines were also awarded Double Gold status, and we are very pleased to have so many of our wines rated so highly:

Double Gold:

  • Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2015
  • Stellenbosch Chardonnay 2016
