Trophies for Inniskillin, Capezzana & Domaine du Chêne at DWWA 2014

We are delighted to announce that Inniskillin has been awarded a coveted International Trophy at this year’s Decanter World Wine Awards. The trophy winners were revealed at a special ceremony held last night at Decanter’s London headquarters.

Sixteen wines were in the running for the International Trophy for Sweet over £15 RRP but it was the Inniskillin Gold Vidal Icewine 2012 that triumphed, with the judges praising its “lifted aromas of white flowers, tropical fruit and peach…rich and full palate…lively spine of acidity…(and) intriguingly long finish…”

The Regional Trophy for Sweet Tuscany over £15 RRP was awarded to the Capezzana Vin Santo di Carmignano Riserva 2007 (“archetypal Vin Santo with toffee walnuts and an unctuously sweet yet savoury character”), while the Regional Trophy for White Rhône over £15 RRP went to the Domaine du Chêne Condrieu 2012, a “wine of definition and character – this is a great statement for Viognier”.

A further six wines from our portfolio were awarded Gold Medals, as follows:

Altos Las Hormigas ‘Vista Flores’ Single Vineyard Malbec 2012
Amalaya Torrontés Riesling 2013
Amalaya Red 2013
Amalaya Gran Corte 2012
David Reynaud Crozes Hermitage ‘Georges Reynaud’ 2012
Hattingley Valley Brut Rosé 2011
