cover 300 17The wine season has started again. It's the perfect time for the famous wine buying guide  "The best 300 wines below 10 euro in Belgium" to pop up in the market and the stores. Especially for those wine lovers out there who want to do some great picks.

Once again, overall we scored very very well with all our wines. Pity the list is limited to 300 and not 400  :-) . But we are very happy our cheapest white wine features once again in this handy book. Our 2016 Ocean White gets a great and very accurate description from the well known author and journalist Frank Vander Auwera. 

Please find the brief translation hereunder. I hope you will find the time to discover this lovely wine in your local wine shop and just try it out for yourself.

Cheers !

marsanne, sauvignon blanc 

The fact that the Flemish guy behind the brand knows the wine business and the consumer market in detail is reflected in the refined upgrades of the blends year after year. Take this white Languedoc in its 5th brand anniversary year. It saw its Sauvignon Blanc proportion rise, adding more vibes and excitement to the palate. Ultra light yellow colour with a crystal clear brightness. Floral notes, ripe apricots, nectarines and pear as far as the marsanne is concerned. The zesty and juicy touch of lime, bergamot, grapefruit and green apple blends in beautifully. A true wine to enjoy “Flemish style”, to be served around 8-9° C.











 

cover 300 beste kleinThe "Wijnkoopgids" is back. For the 29th time, this yearly overview of the best 300 wines under 10 euro in Belgium, is picking out the best bargains on the market.

Overall we scored very very well with all our wines, but as the winning list is topped off at 300, those wines just above don't get the exposure. This being said we are very happy to be in it again. Especially with our 2015 Mountain Red blend we finetuned and shows very 'yummy' as Frank Vander Auwera describes him so accurately! 

We give a brief translation and hope you will find the wine in the store and just try it out for yourself.

Cheers !

cabernet sauvignon, carignan, grenache, malbec
Time for some healthy chauvinism: this is a brand and blend designed by a Belgian and cultivates a high yummy feeling. Components from different areas and appellations allow well used freedom to create a 'Vin de France' of quality signature. This vintage saw the addition of malbec to the blend, offering more options on an even better wine than before with more depth and meatiness.

It shines deep purple red and inky, like we would be tasting straight from the tank. Fun and balanced aroma's of violet, red cherries, strawberry without sultriness. The charm of the vintage is captured in a mouthwatering fruit basket with cassis, red currant, cherry, velvety tannins, liquorice, vivid acids and a herby-peppery finish. Serve this fruit factory around 14°C, at best while it is young and playful.

Even after 28 editions, this yearly overview of the best 300 wines under 10 euro in Belgium, remains to be as exciting as ever and a firm hold on to many wine lovers.

So what can we say else than that we are delighted to be in it again with three wines and our first red wine! Frank Van der Auwera, a well known Belgian wine journalist, receives roughly 4000 samples that in a few months time gets narrowed down to a bucket list of 300.

So here they are, the three selected Sayang Wines for this 2015 year's guide:

It feels good when people enjoy your wines. And if International judges confirm the quality of your babies, then that is a nice bonus.  After the Concours Mondial in Brussels, the International Wine Challenge awarded   ::Sayang Mmuahh Brut   sparkling wine a bronze medal in May 2015.

In addition, the   ::2014 Sayang Block 22 Merlot - Malbec   got a nice "Commended". We consider this wine a little bit as our own little special darling because of the peculiar blend and the yummy stylish wine it shows in the glass.

Every year we send in just a few bottles here and there to a very small selection of wine competitions and it's great to see we are being picked up in them. International Wine Challenge is one of the major competitions recognised world wide and attracts many producers to participate as it has a global spread.

As Sayang is a world concept, we are happy with this result and encouraged to hold on to our vision and philosophy of quality, value for money and cherishing great wines and people from around world, no matter the origin of the people nor the wine.

And on that note, we can celebrate double this weekend and hand out double "mmuahh's" to all our sayangs and sayangs to come that support us by enjoying our wines.

Cheers

With around 8000 samples sent in and at its 21st edition, this wine competition has taken it's deserved place in the array of competitions organised world wide.

It is with great joy and satisfation we take our place as the only Vino Spumante rewarded with Gold.

It encourages us to maintain our style and to convey our philosophy of quality, value for money and an open vision on the world, no matter the origin of the people nor the wine.

And on that note, we celebrate with a big toast and a little 'mmuahh' to all our sayangs who follow and support us.

Cheers


 






 

shoot wijnkoopgids 2015We were in for a surprise when we inquired about the results of sending in the wines to the 27th edition of this Belgian buying guide. Three Sayang wines scored! Frank Van der Auwera, a well known Belgian wine journalist, has a scrutinizing task to select the best 300 wines on the Belgian market below 10 euro from roughly 3500 samples he gets delivered each year.

So here we go, as far as Sayang Wines are concerned, the 2014 guide features:


On top of all that, the Block 22 Sauvignon Blanc - Viognier got a special "Value" recommendation. How cool can it get?
