Platters 2014 - launch at Vineyard Hotel
A fairly emotional last awards evening for Andrew McDowall, retiring as publisher and handing over the reins to JP Rossouw. Dave Hughes gave a wonderful tribute to him. Winery of the year went to Mullineux Family Wines (Chris and Andrea were busy at the Swartland Revolution, so not present, sadly). The White Blend went to a a very excited Wendy Appelbaum at DeMorgenzon for their Maestro 2012, the Red Wine of the Year to Newton Johnson's Windansea 2012, and Superquaffer of the year to Boland Kelder's Five Climates 2013.
