While there may have been an old notion that house wines were perhaps a little below par, this is certainly not the case today with winemakers producing some stunning wines across varying price points, and our range is no exception.
Following on from our success at last year’s Decanter World Wine Awards where our entry-level Pais de Poetas Merlot
scooped a Platinum medal, we are delighted to have continued to add to our top medal tally this year, scooping three further golds at the Sommelier Awards 2017. The only competition to be aimed solely at the On Trade, the Sommelier Wine Awards is judged by a panel of top sommeliers and On Trade drinks buyers. Rewarding the best house wines available to the On Trade, every entry is tasted both blind and by category.
Judges’ comments: “Bright, with a dose of residual sugar, tropical fruits with good acidity and a long candied finish. Cheap and cheerful.” “Very good value, and suitable for a range of establishments.”
Judges’ comments: “Bright red berry fruit on the nose, with soft juice fruit on the palate, a very quaffable red.” “Great with steak in the pub.”
Judges’ comments: “Fresh with good acidity, good value for this quality, great for selling in pubs.”
In addition to our entry level offer, we were incredibly proud to be awarded another Platinum Decanter medal for our premium Te Pā Chardonnay
which was honoured with the Platinum ‘Best in Category’ award for the best value New Zealand Chardonnay, achieving 95 points from the esteemed judging panel. Judged in a blind tasting the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is considered one of the most authoritative sources of wine recommendations for wine lovers worldwide, with over 17,000 entries in 2017 alone, making this mouth-watering white a perfect addition to any premium wine list.
Judges’ comments: "Opens with a glorious bouquet of white peach, cream, toast, lemon and lime. Flavours of melon and fresh honey on buttered toast with lime marmalade. Complex with a fantastic structure and laudable freshness. Form an orderly queue please!"
With wines to suit a range of different price points, each of our wines is carefully selected by Dr. Arabella Woodrow M.W.at Broadland Wineries in association with our global wine partners, producing a dedicated channel-specific portfolio of products exclusively available to the On Trade
