Just Released: Results for 2019 International Eastern Wine Competition, Santa Rosa, California:
Our 2017 Chambourcin Ice Wine was just voted best “Best of Show”, "Best of Class”, and Best of Dessert/Late Harvest. Yes, that means that the Competition's group of wine judges, who come from around the world, voted unanimously to award this wine these accolades. This garnet-colored red ice wine, which pairs famously with any dark chocolate, was also awarded 98 points. And yes, this is a score out of a possible 100 points - in which the judges are assessing all of the elements of the wine, including color, aromas, acidity, balance, and flavors which contribute to overall drinkability. Johnson Estate's team is delighted with this recognition!
