I've decided to take a look at the results on the 2019 Houston based wine competition & list all the results of South African wines. To make sure everyone understands the results I've also edited the results from gold, silver & bronze medals, etc to Vivino Style Ratings. Double Gold would be 5 stars, Gold 4.5, Silver 4 stars and bronze 3.5.
Here are the overall best of show results first.
