Ghost Corner wins International Sauvignon award in the Decanter World Wine Awards!

It was the Decanter World Wine Awards last night, a much anticipated event in the wine trades' calendar and the wine trade was out in force. Alex and Neb represented Bancroft and our wineries who had won an award. Alex was representing Ghost Corner and Neb represented Marjan Simcic. These producers had both won gold and regional medals in their categories. However Alex had the great honour of also collecting the International Award for Sauvignon over £15 for the Ghost Corner Sauvignon 2012.

Ghost Corner Sauvignon Blanc 2012 (Elim, South Africa): Best In Show International Sauvignon over £15
"Delicate, cool aromas of nettle, pea pod and artichoke with saline notes over a citrus fruit-packed palate. Complex and multi-layered with a juicy mid-palate, a mineral quality and fresh grass wrapped in a silky texture."

Leonardo 2006, Marjan Simcic (Slovenia): Best In Show Regional Trophy Slovenian Sweet over £15:
"Very distinctive and almost tawny in appearance. Intense, complex aromas of apricot marmalade, Christmas pudding and spice over a rich, nutty palate of lifted caramely fruit with orange peel, coffee and nutmeg. Long toffee and butterscotch finish." 

Congratulations to both wineries on this fantastic achievement!

  1. To professionals and enthusiasts, the Vinturi wine aerator helps red wine, white wine, and spirits achieve their intended flavors, feel, and aromas. We know that wine needs air to reach its full potential, which takes time. Even though decanters help wine breathe, they provide a cumbersome and time-consuming solution. Vinturi offers a hand-help, travel-sized, and countertop wine aerators to help achieve your absolute best results in faster time.
