What's New at Rosehall Run

 

Awards announced at the 2014 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC):

SILVER OUTSTANDING            2011 Chardonnay JCR

SILVER                                         2011 Pinot Noir JCR

Founded in 1969, the IWSC is considered to be the most prestigious competition of its kind in the world, and this year is celebrating its 45th anniversary.

The Northern Hemisphere results were announced on Wednesday 4th June, when wines from these regions were showcased at the London Wine Fair at Olympia.

The awards given by the competition are believed to be among some of the highest honours in the industry. Judging for the Competition is unique in that it has two stages; first, the products are tasted blind by expert panels, selected from over 300 fully experienced and qualified industry judges. Then, products which receive the top medals are subject to technical analysis before results are released; this crucial stage ensures winners receive complete validation.

This is the second of two international awards for the 2011 Chardonnay. The 2011 Chardonnay JCR was honoured earlier this year with a Bronze showing at UK’s the drink business, the world’s leading drinks trade publication, in their 2013 Global Masters of Chardonnay.

Both wines are now available in our online store for home delivery.
