LEVIN wins 2 GOLD MEDALS at SOMMELIER WINE AWARDS

2012s LEVIN Sauvignon Blanc & MISTER L judged top tier in premier trade driven awards

SOMMELIER WINE AWARDS

Media release 
EMBARGOED until 11:00am GMT, Tuesday 26 April 2016
London, United Kingdom

LEVIN Wines is very pleased to announce their double gold medal success at the 2016 Sommelier Wine Awards, Britain’s only on-trade wine competition, judged blind by a panel of sommeliers and wine buyers from the UK’s top hotels, bars and restaurants.

‘Our wines have always been made to match with complex menus, originally for our own restaurants and hotels and today many other beautifully curated wine lists around the world, so it’s really very gratifying to have them recognised by London’s top sommeliers,’ enthused LEVIN Wines director, Lynne Levin.

The premium cuvée MISTER L Sauvignon Blanc 2012 (which is certified organic, handpicked from a single vineyard in Choussy, barrel fermented and matured on lees for nine months in new French oak) and the flagship LEVIN Sauvignon Blanc 2012 (also certified organic, handpicked blend of 18 vineyards across Bourré, Choussy and Oisly, before low temperature fermentation and maturation in stainless steel) were both included in the Gold List – the SWA competition’s ‘ultimate wine list’, chosen from the 2,500 wines submitted.

Both wines were provided with tasting notes from the judges:

LEVIN Sauvignon Blanc 2012 GOLD MEDALLEVIN Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Competition category: France Loire Sauvignon Menetou/Pouilly

Judges’ Tasting notes:

Truly fresh varietal characteristics took this well priced wine to the Gold podium. ‘Elegant and mineral, with gooseberry and herbaceous style and decent acidity,’ began Dario Barbato of Individual Restaurants, while Sara Bacchiori of Chez Bruce highlighted its ‘asparagus, gooseberry and greengage, quince with some pear notes on a ripe, fruity palate with some length’.

MISTER L Sauvignon Blanc 2012 GOLD MEDALMISTER L Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Competition category: France Loire Sauvignon Menetou/Pouilly

Judges’ Tasting notes:

Barrel fermentation gives depth and creaminess to this Gold Lister. Gustavo Medina of Tate Britain found this ‘complex with great concentration’, finding ‘gooseberry blossom notes on the nose, lime and lemon freshness with a touch of tropical fruit and a rich midpalate’. ‘Rich and complex, with some honeyed development,’ added team leader Natasha Hughes MW.
