Gold Outstanding Win for Jenkyn Place in 2017 International Wine & Spirits Competition

Jenkyn Place’s Blanc de Noirs 2010 has won the coveted Gold Outstanding in this year’s IWSC.

Now in its 47th year, the original aim of the Competition was to award excellence to wines and spirits worldwide and this aim remains the same today, encouraging recognition for quality products.  Entries into the Competition are received from nearly 90 countries worldwide and each sample is judged according to its class and treated with the same care and consideration in the Competition’s dedicated tasting premises.

Camilla Bladon, Marketing Director comments, “We are so proud of this wine and are thrilled with our Gold Outstanding in the IWSC 2017, which will hopefully tempt more people to come and try something new and a bit different to a classic cuvée.  Quality has always been the centre of every decision that we make here at Jenkyn Place so this is great recognition of that.”

Jenkyn Place’s winemaker Dermot Sugrue decided to leave the wine on the lees for four years instead of the usual three for the rest of their range, and the result is a wine that is refreshing yet complex with bright fruit flavours alongside rich toasty notes.
