SA Sauvignon Blanc champions triumph again in France

TALK ABOUT the top seeds winning through time and again… At the 2013 Concours Mondial du Sauvignon held in the Loire, France, there was only one real surprise among the most successful South African entries – Totus 2009 being a few years older than most of the other gold medallists and from a Stellenbosch producer new to the podium and whose shareholders usually prefer to keep a low profile while raising funds in aid of  needy children. For the rest it was a case of familiar labels, with David Nieuwoudt of the Cederberg Private Cellar and Thys Louw of Diemersdal Estate in Durbanville performing best of all in terms of their medal hauls.
