The Viognier was the only gold medal winner in the Wooded Viognier category. A number of other wines mostly from highly regarded cellars won silver and bronze medals.

It is one of the best wines we have made, and a fitting tribute to Penny Hughes who sadly passed away last year. It was recently selected as the top wine from 162 South African wines which were presented by Wine of South Africa at a tasting in Hong Kong hosted by Eddie McDougall, one of the cities top wine personalities  www.flyingwinemaker.asia/events.  Penny 2014 was also commended by Decanter magazine earlier this year."
