Krisemma Elgin Chardonnay wins Gold Medal

wineJohn Lodge visited Handford Wines in London for two very special reasons... First they are now the exclusive stockists of his Krisemma Elgin Chardonnay, and second we heard that the wine has been awarded a Gold Medal in the prestigious International Wine Challenge Awards! To see the wine both on the shelf, and to win the award in the same day was rather wonderful. Handford is a fabulous shop, full of knowledgeable staff and great wines and we are honoured to be on their shelves, and we're also very proud that the IWC have recognised the wine in this way. More details about the IWC Award to follow, but in the meantime here are some tasting notes that Greg Sherwood, MW, at Handford provided to us! 12316530_10153826539505972_7876154746753722900_n Krisemma Chardonnay 2014 expertly marries the elegant restrained classicism of Burgundy with the vibrancy and energy of the cool climate Western Cape. Shows superb balance, wonderful white blossom and lemon zest purity and the most detailed, mineral-laden Meursault like finish. A very classy wine indeed.
