Exton Park Flies the Flag in Hong Kong!

Once again, we have scored a ‘first’ – as the only English wine producer to win awards in one of the most prestigious Far East competitions.

Announced recently at the glittering Awards Dinner for the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition, the two Exton Park wines entered – Blanc de Noirs and Pinot Meunier Rose – have both been awarded Silver medals.

Not one, not two – but a three medal tally, as Exton Park’s Blanc de Noirs NV also won Bronze in the Food Pairing class, as the ideal match to smoked pigeon with oolong tea leaves.

‘It is a tremendous honour for us to be representing England like this’ commented Head Winemaker Corinne Seely, whose philosophy on the expression of the English terroir has seen the wines win a total of seventeen Silver and three Gold medals, together with a Trophy, since Exton Park was launched eighteen months ago. ‘Now to have the commendation of so many key wine experts in the Far East is very important. Exton Park is a premium, niche brand – just right for the region’.

The rich, rounded Blanc de Noirs, specially created as an easy-drinking, easy-celebrating sparkling wine for the English palate, is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes – the majority from the more mature plots and of differing years. And all grown on our single-estate property.

Meanwhile, the 100% Pinot Meunier Rose –the first of its kind in England – is a fresh and stylish expression of the unique Exton Park terroir, and bottled in green glass to preserve the colour and quality of the sensitive Meunier grape. That’s quite a rare achievement.

Clearly, both wines are worthy winners – right across the world.
