Signal Gun
Signal Gun Sea Smoke Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2012 was awarded a prestigious gold award at the 17th Michelangelo International Awards luncheon, held at the Lord Charles Hotel on Friday, 6 September 2013.
A panel of 16 wine and brandy specialists from 15 countries judged the entries from the 12th to the 17th of August at Romond Vineyards in Somerset West. 

Since the competition's inception in 1997 more than 160 international wine experts from 37 countries have served on the judging panels, which is why this competition is unique in South Africa - judges are unbiased, professional experts with international experience in wine adjudication. "The Michelangelo competition offers value to their entrants," says Lorraine Immelman, founder and owner of the Michelangelo International Wine Awards, adding, "The competition provides a platform for local wines to be judged by a panel of international judges on local soil."

The Sauvignon Blanc class received the most entries, namely a record number of 173; awarded seven Gran D'Or, 20 gold and 33 silver medals.

Signal Gun, a family run winery, is situated in the Durbanville region. As the shot of the Signal Gun echoes through the vineyards of our picturesque farm it signals the start of a new generation of wine making. We pride ourselves in making small quantities of fine wine from our carefully chosen grapes. 

The Sea Smoke Sauvignon Blanc Reserve 2012 is an intensely flavoured, terroir driven Sauvignon Blanc with hints of ripe spanspek, asparagus and flint on the nose.
