And as is typical for Tim Atkin, he also reveals his wine favourites.

A gold medal was awarded to 201 wines that were rated with more than 95 points. In 2023 there is a highlight of the year, because Tim Aktin rated a special wine with 100 points and in addition three other wines with 99 points. As he writes himself, the excellent results confirm that South Africa produces the best wines in its history. In particular, he highlights the 2017 and 2021 vintages.

Chenin Blanc and Syrah performed the strongest, but there are dozens of different styles among his top wines. The Cape’s diversity is one of its trump cards.
