Hosted by tastingbook.com, the BWW Competition is open for voting until 30th October 2017 for the Top 1000 most voted wines in the world and Sirromet is calling for support from their customers to vote for their 2013 Le Sauvage Chardonnay and Syrah Viognier. “We are having a fantastic year winning medals overseas but to be voted by our customers for having one of the top wines in the world, would be a wonderful accomplishment.” said Chief Winemaker Adam Chapman.
