The Sakura Japan Women’s Wine Awards is Japan’s largest international wine competition. Recognizing the importance of women working as sommeliers, wine experts, and household buyers, the competition is judged entirely by women.
This year marked the best result so for South African winery Noble Hill, with Gold Medals for the estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon, Viognier, and Mourvèdre Rosé. Noble Hill’s small-batch Blanc de Blancs also won a Silver Medal. More than 2,900 wines were entered into the competition. Proprietor and winemaker Kristopher Tillery commented on the estate’s performance, saying “Noble Hill wines are about fresh, fruitful flavours and a balance of strength and elegance. We are greatly honoured to be awarded at the Sakura competition, because I think the competition is seeking to reward wines in the style that we love to make.”
Noble Hill’s estate wines are made with pride in provenance and humility in craftsmanship. Noble Hill is located in the Simonsberg-Paarl appellation of origin, which has made some of South Africa’s finest wines dating back to the late 17th century.
