The 2009 edition of John Platter Wine Guide has been released and more importantly, the 5 star wines have been announced!

A record 33 wines were chosen for the highest accolade – an indication that the quality of South African is improving in leaps and bounds.
There are some usual suspects on the list but some notable newcomers in vilafonte, Eagles Nest and Sterhuis.
I am particularly excited at vilafonte’s inclusion in the 5 star lineup as it represents a successful partnership between South African winegrowers and American winemakers – global partnership at it’s best.
Get your hands on one of the winners as soon as you can because soon they will be sold out – if not already!
