Christmas Has Come Early As Our Grand Rosé Wins An IWC 2019 Bronze Medal
We’ve had an early Christmas present at Premier Estates Wine and are extremely proud to announce that our Sparkling Italian Grand Rosé has just been awarded a Bronze Medal at the International Wine Challenge 2019 - Tranche 1.
The International Wine Challenge (IWC) is now in its 36th year. Each year the IWC receives entries from more than 80 countries worldwide. The awards presented at the competition are very much revered throughout the wine industry and are much coveted by the world’s biggest wine brands. The judging process takes place in two stages; a blind tasting, conducted by some of the wine industry’s most highly regarded experts, and a detailed analysis of the liquid by an independent laboratory. The competition has a particularly rigorous judging process and each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 12 different judges. Many of these judges are Masters of Wine or professional sommeliers, some are winemakers and others are trade experts, each judging in their particular field of expertise.
Budge Dhariwal, Managing Director, says, ‘I was very pleased indeed when the IWC awards were announced and we received the bronze medals for our Grand Rosé, as I know first hand, the amount of work that goes into the refining of our sparkling wines and the production process for each. To win a Bronze Medals for this wine is absolutely fantastic news, it’s been a commended medal winner in the past but winning an IWC Bronze medal is a very satisfying achievement as it demonstrates the continually improving quality of our wines. The run of award wins over the last few years for the Premier Estates range has certainly brought our wines to the attention of a wider spectrum of the wine buying public and proves our point that award winning wines can be purchased at an everyday price level.’
