IWSC Bronze Awards For Our Chilean and South African Wines
We are extremely proud to announce that our Chilean Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc and our South African Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, have just been awarded Bronze Medals at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
The International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) was originally founded in 1969 and takes place on a yearly basis. Every year the IWSC 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 is judged by over 250 specialists from all over the world. Many of these judges are Masters of Wine, some are winemakers and others are trade experts, each judging in their particular field of expertise.
Budge Dhariwal, Managing Director, says, ‘I was particularly pleased when the IWSC awards were announced and we received these bronze medals for our New World Wines as I know, first hand, the amount of effort that goes into the refining of each wine and its production process. To win Bronze Medals for these wines is absolutely fantastic news, they’ve all been multi-award medal winners in the past but winning more IWSC Bronze medals is a very satisfying achievement as it proves the consistency of quality in our wines. The run of award wins over the last few years for the Premier Estates range will undoubtedly be bringing our wines to the attention of a wider spectrum of the wine buying public and demonstrates that award winning wines can be expected at a modest price level.’
