The University of Stellenbosch assisted with the development of a special judging system used for the Shiraz Challenge. It is a tasting format which eliminates any inter-session discussion of wines and presents each judge with his/her unique tasting order to combat palate fatigue and ensure that each wine is judged fairly and without bias. Twenty Shiraz and six Shiraz Blend finalists are finally selected.
In its continued commitment to industry skills development, a protégée under mentorship of the esteemed Cape Winemakers Guild is invited every year to join the panel.
