The Carrol Boyes Sketchbook Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 won a gold award at the 2018 Michelangelo International Wine and Spirits Awards. The awards, which took place on Saturday, 29 September 2018 in Cape Town, give local and foreign wines the opportunity of being judged by a panel of acclaimed wine experts from around the globe.
The award-winning Carrol Boyes Sketchbook Cabernet Sauvignon 2014 has a deep purple hue and a youthful palate that is delicate and complex, denoting tones of blackcurrant, violet and cedar aromas with touches of mint. Every bottle will now bear a gold sticker in recognition of the award.
The wine forms part of a range from Carrol Boyes Wines. Moving into winemaking was a logical evolution for Carrol Boyes as it lent a natural complement to the elegant and occasion-worthy offerings under the brand’s banner.
The Carrol Boyes Wines collection bears exclusive Carrol Boyes labeling, while each individual bottle embodies the lifestyle embraced by the brand.
The wines are the result of a joint venture between the renowned South African designer, Carrol Boyes and her brother, John Boyes, together with his business partner, Neels Barnardt and resident winemaker Hendrik Snyman, both of Barnardt Boyes.
Over the years, Snyman has gained a plethora of experience, working in USA, South Africa, France and New Zealand. He puts his considerable talents to work in creating the wines and has been the recipient of a number of awards.
