We've won awards before but today's news from the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2015 tops the lot!
Carmelita Cabernet Franc 2012 has received a Gold medal and Carmelita Malbec 2012 a Silver Outstanding medal at the IWSC 2015 putting our wines up there with the very best Argentine wines in this year's competition. Only 13 wines from Argentina achieved Gold or Silver Outstanding medals in this years competition. To say we're thrilled is an understatement!
With 46 years heritage, an IWSC award is accepted internationally as a badge of quality. Judging is by blind tasting with panels selected from over 300 fully qualified industry judges and extensive chemical analysis.
2012 was our first Cabernet Franc vintage. We've always thought it was pretty special but it looks like the experts agree!
