South Africa's first and still best-selling wine annual, Platter's Guide, is the comprehensive, up-to-date, and authoritative go-to regarding who's who and what's what in the winelands.

Being on the Platter’s annual five-star wine list is regarded as one of the greatest achievements in the industry for wine lovers, as well as the wine industry. 

Star ratings are determined by a points system ranging from 0 to 100. 

Kleine Zalze Wine Estate scooped the award for 'Winery of the Year'. A remarkable seven of their wines achieved top honours of #FiveStars, which saw them rise to the top against a very strong field of contenders.

The following wines scooped top honours:

  • Chenin Blanc (Vineyard Selection) 2019 
  • Chenin Blanc Amphora 2018
  • Chenin Blanc (Family Reserve) 2019
  • Whole Bunch Shiraz 2017
  • Cabernet Sauvignon (Family Reserve) 2017
  • Sauvignon Blanc (Family Reserve) 2019
  • Grenache Amphora 2017

One other win was for Bonang Matheba! The TV presenter and celeb shared the rating of her House of BNG's prestige reserve, Méthode Cap Classiques!
