Le Pommier Wines — Platter Awards Results

It’s that time of the year where our Le Pommier Wines had to strut their stuff against the competition. We’re referring to the annual Platter Awards of course! This being a big year with our new Olivia Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, which is a very special wine and was dedicated to the Le Pommier Wines Owner’s grandmother, making its appearance to be judged.

And while it was agonising holding our breath — the results and feedback was extremely positive and made us very proud!

So without any further ado, see the results for the 2015 Platter Awards:

Jonathan’s Malbec 2013 3 ½ Stars

“Named after a bull that once decimated the grape harvest, whose photo takes pride of place on 13’s label! This is a big wine, with scrub, blackberries, some cocoa & a nice savoury tannin grip.”

Red Blend 2012 (New) 3 Stars

“Merlot-dominant 4-part Bordeaux blend, ripe 12 has expressive dark fruit, vanilla spicing adding to the richness, the firm tannins showing its serious side.”

Olivia 2014 (New) 3 ½ Stars

“Semillon/Sauvignon gives 14 its minerality, wet pebble flintiness, the 9 months in barrel adding a biscuit tone. Finishes clean, fresh & long.”

Rosé 2014 2 ½ Stars

Sauvignon Blanc 2014 3 ½ Stars
