SWC charity wine tasting at JDX


We had an inspiring evening with the City’s rising stars at the young and dynamic company JDX. Not surprisingly they are one of the fastest growing in Financial markets as they supply quality young graduates on a project basis to many of the leading banks in the world. They were delighted to take a time out to sample some of Schalk Burger’s wines at their Help for Heroes charity fundraising event, the result being an evening of fun and serious tasting.

While it would be invidious to pick out winners when so many featured  strongly, our stars of tomorrow flagged a few names, The Mon Rene sparkling was universally liked and the Meerkat Pinotage ran the Welbedacht Hat Trick quite close which was quite surprising but understandable. Meantime the Meerkat Chenin Blanc was a firm favourite.

“We are very grateful to be hosting the Sporting Wine Club this evening. They have brought along some wonderful wines with a great story and I am sure that our relationship will grow into a strong one. We look forward to meeting Schalk Burger when he next comes over.”
