The wine made it to the coveted 'Gold List' in the 'House Wine £5.50 and Under' category and was awarded a 'By the Glass Trophy' forming part of the 'Perfect Pub Quartet'.

The judges had some excellend feedback and praised the wine's freshness and minerality:

Gentle flinty hint with a good aftertaste of orange blossom

Mirco Giannoccaro of Luton Hoo Hotel Golf & Spa

Creamy texture with hints of tangerine peel and a refreshing acidity.'

Oscar Miller of Vinoteca King's Cross

Minerals, texture and a depth way beyond its price tag. Herbaceous notes on the nose alongside hints of tangerine peel lead to a fresh palate, more than capable of holding its own alongside quite punchy dishes. Think ‘monkfish with tomato, olives, anchovy and a touch of chilli

Peter Bagatti of Bagatti’s
