One wine, three trophies - HAT-TRICK FOR RIJK'S RESERVE CHENIN BLANC 2008.
We are proud to announce that Rijk's performed incredibly well at the 2013 Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show. Now in its 12th year, the competition is widely considered the country's most revered wine selection process and attracts more than 1 000 wines annually – all rigorously assessed ‘blind’ by a panel of highly regarded international and local palates.

1. The Harold Eedes Trophy* for Best Chenin Blanc
2. The Old Mutual Trophy for Best White Wine Overall
3. The Old Mutual International Judges’ Trophy.
* Rijk’s Cellar was the first ever winner of the Harold Eedes Trophy in 2010 for the Best Chenin Blanc, with our Chenin Blanc Touch of Oak 2009.
