Absa 2020 Top 10 Pinotage Award Ceremony

The Absa Top 10 Pinotage competition is now in its 24th year and attracted 149 entries from all the wine regions of South Africa. Despite the challenges imposed by a temporary alcohol ban and mandatory lockdown, it’s encouraging to see the continued interest and support for this uniquely South African varietal and the sought-after accolade which the competition awards.

We welcome you as we celebrate South Africa’s finest pinotages with a hybrid offline/online, interactive awards ceremony. We will identify the ten new wines which will serve as the benchmark for the development of distinctive South African Pinotage.
