Sommelier Gold List

The Sommelier Wine Awards is a challenge with a difference. As Britain’s only on-trade wine competition, it's judged by top sommeliers, wine buyers and leading consultants, with special awards for value and food-friendliness.

This is the defining feature of the SWA. The objective is not simply to hand out medals, but to put together the ultimate wine list for the UK on-trade - the Gold List  - from around 3,000 wines sent in. So achieving gold is a big deal!

Kim Crawford have always focused on flavour, and Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc is no exception. The judges' said of the 2017 vintage, "This Gold winner ticked all the boxes, with a lovely grapefruit nose and some tropical notes, good texture on the palate, bright fruits and a fresh finish".

We're delighted to have "Limited Offers" on both Spitfire Sauvignon Blanc and Kim Crawford Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc - for one week only (or while stocks last).
