Additionally, the Villiera Monro Brut 2012 is listed in the ‘Wines of the Year’ which reflects the highest-scoring Five Star wine in its category.
The 5-Star rated Villiera Monro Brut 2012 bears a Grier family name and is Villiera’s Prestige Cuvee. ‘Achieving a Five Star rating for our flagship Cap Classique is an accomplishment we are very proud of as it recognises the craftsmanship we put into this flagship MCC, from our environmentally-friendly vineyard practices to the finesse in the winemaking process’, says Jeff Grier, Villiera Cellarmaster. ‘Also, these 5-Star ratings heighten awareness of the distinct quality of our super-premium Cap Classiques, enhancing our brand perception.’
Other accolades achieved this year for the 2012 Monro Brut include an IWSC Gold Outstanding Award and a 94-rating in the Tim Atkins South African Special Report for 2018, suggesting its potential as a noteworthy vintage for Villiera Cap Classique.
