Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report & Prescient Chardonnay Report Sponsorships
Prescient is proud to be associated with the “king & queen” of grapes as the headline sponsor of the Prescient Cabernet Sauvignon Report and the Prescient Chardonnay Report (previously the Christian Eedes Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay reports).
Cabernet Sauvignon is the world’s best travelled dark-skinned wine grape and in South Africa, it’s the third most widely planted variety. Chardonnay, on the other hand, is arguably the grape responsible for the greatest dry white wine in the world. In South Africa, the variety is currently the seventh most planted making up over 7% of the national vineyard.
All of the above makes the South African wine industry’s efforts worthy of scrutiny and these reports showcase the top-rated wines from both categories on an annual basis. The front-runners in each category are scrutinized and a line-up of 60 wines are selected. The top performing wines are then recognised at an awards ceremony held in conjunction with winemag.co.za.
Following the awards, public tasting events are hosted by winemag.co.za in conjunction with Prescient where the top-rated wines in each category are showcased to the interested public. These evenings are presented by winemag.co.za editor Christian Eedes along with one or two of the top winemakers within each category.
At these public tasting events, the top-rated wines in each category are presented accompanied with tasting notes & score sheets. The objective of these public tasting events are to showcase the top-rated wines to the interested public.

SA Canoe Marathon Championships 2016
Marathon canoeing is enjoying a terrific resurgence in interest in South Africa, not least of all because of South Africa’s incredible achievements in international racing in recent years.
At Prescient, our teams are encouraged to lead a balanced lifestyle and sport is a key feature within our ranks. We encourage development of sport and proudly support these initiatives within the environment within which we operate.
Peninsula Canoe Club (PCC) falls within the jurisdiction of our head office and as the 2016 organising club of the South African Canoe Marathon Champs, we were pleased to be able to offer our support to enable the club to host an event of national stature.
The South African Canoe Marathon Champs took place on 11th & 12th June 2016 and served as a team selection event for the upcoming ICF World Canoe Marathon Championship to be held in Germany in September.
Further to this, South Africa will also host the ICF Canoe World Marathon Championship at the Natal Canoe Club in Pietermaritzburg in September 2017.
We look forward to the continued resurgence of interest in this genre of sport and to our ongoing association with marathon paddling in the future.
