Inaugural Hallo Merlot Top 10 awards ceremony at Vondeling Wines in Paarl

The awards ceremony of the inaugural Hallo Merlot Top 10 Competition took place on Wednesday 22 June. Hosted by Vondeling Wines, guests were able to taste the best 26 Merlot wines out of the total of 71 entries from wineries spread throughout the Cape.

Merlot wines from the Paarl region, however, led the way. From the 10 top-scoring wines, four originated from Paarl wineries, followed by three from Stellenbosch, with Merlot producers in Elgin, the Swartland and Constantia making up the balance.
