Another year has gone by at one of UK’s largest and most prestigious blind tastings. On the 26th version of the event, a top quality judging panel – with Tim Atkin, Charles Metcalfe, Sam Harrop, and Derek Smedley as Chairmen – spent two weeks tasting more than 9,500 wines from 41 countries. Undoubtedly this is one of the most important events of the year in the wine industry.
Cono Sur Vineyards & Winery was awarded a gold medal for Cono Sur 20 Barrels Limited Edition Sauvignon Blanc 2008, which was described by the judges as: “Very aromatic, pronounced nettle nose, with grapefruit, grass and green peas. Ripe gooseberry followed by crisp long lemon and lime. Very well-balanced acid and good weight and very refreshing.”
