Friday the 10th of October, saw the results of the 29th Veritas Awards being revealed. Synonymous with excellence in wine and brandy, the Veritas Awards is the longest running and one of the most prestigious wine and brandy competitions in South Africa, dating back to 1991. 

This year, we are delighted to share that not only did Backsberg bag a gold medal for the flagship Family Reserve White 2018 – a Roussanne, Chardonnay and Viognier blend –  but the estate’s potstill Sydney Back Brandy 15 Year was similarly awarded. Additional awards include the following:

*Pumphouse Shiraz 2017 – Silver Outstanding
*Klein Babylons Toren Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot 2016 – Silver
*Family Reserve Red 2016 – Silver

These wines truly epitomise Backsberg’s 103 year heritage of formidable winemaking and we look forward to our loyal patrons, and a few new ones too, sipping and swirling on these robust and aromatic wines at the Veritas Deloitte private and public tastings across the country later this month.
