Platter launch of 2017 at Table Bay Hotel
The Platter guide for 2017 was launched at the Table Bay hotel on Monday 31 Oct 2016.  It really was a night for the big producers to show that they can make not just volume but great quality too. The Winery of the Year was won by a big producer making 3 000 000 cases a year - Nederburg, and this was the 2nd time they have won this prestigious title.  The White Wine of the year also went to a largish producer - Stellenrust - for their 51 Barrel Fermented Chenin Blanc 2015 and Red Wine of the year to The Winery of Good Hope for their Radford Dale Black Rock 2014, and the Dessert Wine again to Mullineux and Leeu Family Wines - for their Straw Wine 2015; There were lots of newcomers to the 5-star list this year, and another big producer Kleine Zalze winning 3 Five Star awards.  Hamilton Russell must be the only winery to have ALL (2) of their wines achieving 5-star status!/p
