Spring is a time of renewal and innovation. The vines are awakening from their winter sleep and starting to bud. With wonderful winter rain we're optimistic for the new season approaching.
With the changing of the seasons I'm also excited  to introduce my newest range, Sondagskloof, which will be released in October.  The range consists of a skin fermented Sauvignon blanc and Syrah from the Sondagskloof ward in Stanford. Reason for mentioning it slightly earlier than planned is due to the wonderful Tim Atkin report and score this specific wine received. It has been named amongst 5 other Sauvignon Blancs  'wine of the year' under the Sauvignon Blanc category. 
Tim's tasting notes were as follows: "This is a wonderful Sauvignon Blanc, right up there with the most complex examples of the variety in South Africa. Combining skin and barrel-fermented components, with wild yeasts adding another dimension, this has notes of hay, aromatic spices, grapefruit, fresh toast and impressive palate length."
Watch this space for the first release of this wine. I'll be pouring this wine next Friday the 13th at the Tim Atkin 95+ tasting in CPT.

Tim Atkin – a British Master of Wine, an award-winning wine journalist, broadcaster and commentator, and an impartial expert on South African wines – has released his seventh report on South African wines. 
Tim, who regularly visits South Africa, is an incredible taster who has ingrained himself in our industry. In his 2019 report alone he has tasted over 2 115 wines in three weeks  and he  only awarded 160 with a prestigious 95 points.
Tim wrote:
"This is my seventh annual report about the South African wine scene and I remain as enthusiastic and positive as ever. I’m convinced that the best Cape wines are world class and represent outstanding value for money. Ever creative, ever evolving, the wine industry continues to surprise and delight me. I tasted wines from at least 20 new producers this year and the quality was mostly good to excellent."
*All wines will be released by the end of the year.
I entered the Winemag Shiraz 2019 report this year and was thrilled that my TSW Syrah 2017 placed amongst the top 10 out of the 83 entries scoring 94 points. A big thank you to Winemag and the team and to Winecellar for the great review on the wine. 
Trizanne Signature Wines Syrah 2017
"Matured for 12 months in 500-litre barrels. An enticing nose with top notes of rose, musk and fynbos before red fruit and white pepper. The palate is light bodied with vibrant acidity and fine tannins, the finish long and saline. Elegant and understated. Abv: 13.67%." – Winemag Shiraz Report 2019, 94/100 (Blind panel tasting)
"Vintage upon vintage, it’s simply one of our absolute favourites here at Wine Cellar. It offers a beautiful nose of poised fruit, mingled with savoury notes that lead on to a precise and focused, yet juicy, dry finish. This is our ‘value pick’ from the Winemag Shiraz Report top 10 selection."

On 16 August, I competed in the 20th edition of the local wine industry’s biggest annual surfing competition, the Vintner's Surf Classic. It was another epic event - and a huge congratulations to all the winners and a massive thank you to all the sponsors, event organisers, and fellow winemakers for making it the best event in the calendar again. I didn't come first this year - but amped for next year.
