Lyme Bay Winery wins treble at the Sommelier Wine Awards
Imbibe Live exhibitor, Lyme Bay Winery, has recently been awarded three medals in the prestigious Sommelier Wine Awards (SWA).
A Gold Medal was awarded for their Shoreline (2014), a Bronze Medal for their Pinot Noir rosé (2014) and a Commended Medal for their Bacchus Fumé (2014).
This small West Country company is passionate about producing delicious, award-winning English Wines, Country Wines, ciders, meads and liqueurs from their home in Devon’s beautiful Axe Valley.
The judges said of their Gold Medal Winner:
Wonderfully expressive, this cool fermented Bacchus/Seyval Blanc/Pinot Noir blend caught the panel's imagination. 'Peach and stone fruit on the nose, with a good, zesty palate attack,' said The Clove Club's Sam Heathcote, adding: 'The slightly saline finish makes it a great food wine.'
Meanwhile, Tomasz Kuszneruk of Plateau Restaurant found the 'jasmine, grassy, citrusy, white chalk' aromas of this wine attractive, also noting an 'almost spritzy palate of good minerality and fresh, summertime character'.
