IWC Tranche 1 2017 - The Results Are In

Award Winning Wines IWC Tranche 1 2017

More Awards For Our Amazing Wines

The team at Premier Estates Wine have been eagerly awaiting the results of the International Wine Challenge (IWC), Tranche 1 - 2017, and the results are in at last! Once more, we are extremely excited and proud to be able to announce that we have come away with 5 new awards. Although we are immensely proud of our previous award winners, this is a decidedly more satisfying result for us, because at this time of year all the big wine companies are thoroughly fine tuning their Christmas wines and the competition we all face is extremely stiff. The amount of effort that goes into producing amazing wines industry wide, for submission to the IWC is huge and the panel of wine experts are especially critical.

Yet More Awards for Our Multi Award Winning Sparkling Prosecco

It’s no good. We’re going to have to make the label on our Prosecco Sparkling wine bottles a lot smaller. We need more room on the bottle to display all our awards! This is the fourth time we have won an award for our Prosecco and this is an immense achievement given the staggering amount of competition we face in the sparkling wine arena.

Anyone with a little interest in the wine world will have heard about the explosion in worldwide Prosecco sales and the industry has stepped up to meet customer demand in a big way. This has resulted in the arrival of hundreds of different cut price brands of Prosecco on the supermarket and off licence shelves and popping up for sale online. When competition is fierce, companies need to find a way to set their products apart from the masses and what better way to do this than enter their Prosecco product into a highly regarded and enormously prestigious competition? An award from the IWC is a seriously highly coveted commendation for any wine.

Premier Estates Wine’s Cava Sparkling Wine Sensation Triumphs Once More

Our rising star sparkling Spanish Cava has once again come out on top winning its fourth award and catching up with our Prosecco. Wine consumers the world over have been avidly exploring sparkling wines other than Prosecco in an effort to find that balance between sweetness and dryness. Cava is an excellent slightly more acidic alternative to Prosecco. Whereas Cava tends to have more of a citrus taste and bouquet, Prosecco is usually more at the sweet apples and pears end of the fruit spectrum. As previously mentioned, the last few years have seen a huge rise in sales of sparkling wine and it’s Prosecco and Cava that top the list.

Another Award for Our Chilean Champ

The first of our 3 still wines to win IWC awards is our Chilean Sauvignon Blanc from this year’s International Wine and Spirits Competition and the International Wine Challenge 2016. This crisp, dry wine with its citrus and passion fruit hints is a big seller for Premier Estates Wine and there’s a very large number of regular buyers registered on our website who just can’t get enough of it. We know it’ll be a winning Christmas party aperitif and its legion of fans will undoubtedly expand as news of yet another award spreads.

South African Superstar Rosé Wins Again

Another of our wines that’s always so popular with the IWC experts is our South African Shiraz Rosé. This one tends to be an all year round best seller and not just a summer favourite as is the case with many rosés. It’s a real pleasure to see this one win an award from the IWC because it’s also a big office favourite that works on its own, with party nibbles and which really comes into its own with Boxing Day turkey curry!

Awesome Australian Red

It also makes us very proud to win an award for our amazing Australian Shiraz as our wine production team have worked tirelessly to refine this product in order to outshine the competition. Our Shiraz is an equally wonderful accompaniment to a traditional turkey Christmas dinner or a Christmas steak alternative as many of us prefer.

The IWC awards have presented us with 5 brilliant early Christmas gifts and we’d love to share our efforts with you, so visit our online wine shop and take advantage of our stunning range of award winning wines all served with a generous seasonal discount.
