Gold for English wines in the International Wine Challenge
This year’s International Wine Challenge has awarded Gold medals to four English wineries.
The awards recognised three sparking wines and one white wine curated from Kent, Sussex, Dorset and Surrey respectively, for their excellence.
The International Wine Challenge is the most influential annual wine competition, which judges a vast selection of wines and chooses its winners based on a voting system.
The Gold winners from England were a 2008 sparkling Chardonnay Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs produced in Kent, a 2008 sparkling Chardonnay and Pinot Noir blend for Nyetimber Rosé from West Sussex, and a 2009 sparkling Classic Cuvée from Furleigh Estate in Bridport, Dorset. The Cassic Cuvée is the first commercial vintage year for the Dorset vineyard. The final Gold was awarded to Denbies, based in Surrey for its sweet white wine.
