The International Wine & Spirit Competition Awards Banquet took place at Guildhall, City of London last night and we are delighted to have been named the IWSC On-trade Supplier 2019.

It was an award-winning evening for Piper-Heidsieck too, as they scooped the Vintage Champagne Trophy for their 2012 Vintage. The judges commented:
"Bright lemon straw colour. Beautiful persistent thread of moonlight silver tiny bubbles. Gorgeous scents of rising dough, roast lemon, baked figs, toasting almonds, chalky flinty smoky scents riding on a sea breeze. The palate is complex, vivid and sustained, gorgeous froth with scented cream. The palate exhibits great harmony, flows wonderfully and majestically to a long, sustained finish. A true gold."
A Gold medal was awarded earlier to the Bride Valley Rosé 'Bella' 2014:
"Salmon pink; sophisticated smoky and raspberry notes. This is classy and complex, with a nutty, smoky and creamy character. Lovely autolysis and a palate that excites througout. Elegant, regal and a classic wine. Stylish, with a good future."
Now in its 50th year and judged by over 400 global experts, the IWSC recognises and rewards the very best wines and spirits in the world. Please see tasting notes below for our Trophy and Gold winning wines. For the full results and more details on the competition, please visit the IWSC website.
