Wine Spectator, arguably the world’s leading wine magazine, deemed it fitting that they align themselves with the oldest and most prominent award-ceremony in the world, namely the Oscars. At this year’s Oscars, Wine Spectator did what it does best: rating wines, albeit in a slightly more light-hearted manner.


The panel selected 10 wines, across 5 categories, each of which suitably “personified” the nominee, and, by implication, the role he or she played in the movie.




Left: Is it Professor Black or Matt Damon?




The magazine nominated Warwick’s Sauvignon Blanc, Professor Black 2009, for Best Supporting Actor. Spotlighted for his supporting role as François Pienaar in the film, Invictus, was the handsome, charismatic and refined Matt Damon. Wine Spectator decided that a bright South African star - Pienaar, immortalized by Damon - commanded a bright wine with the same stellar constitution. The crisp, tropicality and liveliness - coupled with a long floral finish - of Professor Black, made this luscious wine the obvious choice for the Best Supporting Actor role.


So, wherever you are - while watching the star-studded glitterati of the unparalleled-in-stature, celebrity-strewn, glittering, dazzling and extravagant Oscars - follow Wine Spectator’s suggestions, and hobnob with Professor Black, ensuring that your soirée is chic, enchantingly enticing and “all things Hollywood”.
