Every year in April a panel of local and international judges convene to adjudicate the Shiraz wines entered for this prestigious competition. A second category, Shiraz Blends, was added in the second year. Entries are tasted blind with twenty five Shiraz and six Shiraz Blend finalists being finally selected.  The twelve winning Shiraz wines and three Shiraz Blends are announced at an illustrious Awards Function that is preceded by a tasting of all the finalists.

The competition is sponsored by Vinventions South Africa who has been a partner of Shiraz SA since the inception of the Challenge in 2013.

All producers of Shiraz are invited to enter their wines irrespective whether they are members of the association or not.
