2015 Vineyard Collection Merlot
2015 Vineyard Collection Shiraz
2015 Vineyard Collection Cape Fusion (Cape blend)
2013 Speciality Collection Avalon (Amarone style)

For the Vineyard Collection Cape Fusion 2015 the Michelangelo gold medal caps a remarkable string of significant awards this year, including gold medals at the 2018 Frankfurt International Wine Trophy and the 2018 AWC Vienna International Wine Challenge, a Double Platinum / Top 100 award at the National Wine Challenge / Top 100 SA Wines competition for 2018, and a gold medal at Vitis Vinifera 2018. Cape Fusion is Asara’s unique Cape blend comprised of equal parts Pinotage, Malbec and Shiraz, and has been a consistent award-winner vintage by vintage.
