IEWA 2024 Sparkling Trophy Winner

This was one of the wines in my own tasting flight in the competition this year, and to say that it made an impression would be an understatement. Indeed, upon tasting, I turned to my fellow judges and exclaimed, “this has got to have a shot at the trophy”. And indeed, it took the trophy.

It’s a brilliant wine that goes well beyond your lightly fruity stereotypical image of a sparkling rosé. The nose immediately exudes complexity, with toasted sourdough, flaky pastry and super pronounced red fruit.

The palate delivers even more – it’s packed full of pure and punchy red berries up-front. There are lots of raspberry and cranberry flavours, a layer of creamy richness,a hint of orange zest and salted pretzel on the finish. A rosé with true character, this is already one of my favourites of the year.

What the judges thought: “The nose is very complex with lovely pastry notes and still fruit freshness with subtle complexity.”
