The only South African wine to feature in this year's *Top Ten Muscats du Monde is Nederburg's 2011 Eminence, a limited edition, specialty sweet wine made for exclusive sale on the annual Nederburg Auction. Earlier this year, the same vintage won the trophy for best natural sweet dessert wine at the Old Mutual Trophy Wine Show.
The 2011 vintage joins its predecessors in earning wide acclaim. The 2010 vintage was a Veritas double gold winner and ranked five stars by the Platter's South African Wine Guide.
The 2009 vintage was judged South Africa's best sweet wine retailing for over £15 to win the 2013 Decanter World Wine Awards category trophy and was declared wine of the show at the 2011 Five Nations Wine Trophy Challenge in Sydney.
*This year, given the closeness of the scores, there were 12 wines to share the honours on the list.
