To commemorate the event, the estate prepared a limited-edition wine exclusively available from Diemersfontein’s tasting room, PROE deli and online store.
The birthday wine is a Shiraz-dominant blend called TWENTYO
“It has been a talented team that shaped Diemersfontein’s evolution in wine” declares David Sonnenberg, who launched the enterprise with his wife, Susan, on their return from London in 2000.
Cellarmaster Francois Roode is joined in the cellar by Lauren Hulsman, whose first attempt at “flying solo” saw her Thokozani Cabernet Franc take top honours in its category at the 2021 National Wine Challenge/Top 100 SA Wines followed by a remarkable performance at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show, winning the Trophy for Best Cabernet Franc, Old Mutual Trophy for Discovery of the Show/Best Value Gold Medallist, and Old Mutual Trophy for Best Red Wine Overall.
The new Diemersfontein TWENTYONE, a Shiraz-dominant blend that commemorates the Wellington estate’s coming-of-age vintage this year, has sold out within just two months of release. How incredible is that?! The winery has decided however to bottle an additional number of this limited edition wine. It is anticipated to be available mid-September this year.
