The Six Nations Wine Challenge announced the results of its most recent competition, which included the participation of the finest wines from the New World: Australia, Chile, New Zealand, South Africa, and the United States.
The Subercaseaux Grande Cuvée earned a gold medal and a place among the best sparkling wines in the world in this year’s competition. This blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from the Limarí Valley is elegant in its style, freshness, and minerality as well as its good character and balance.
The Six Nations Wine Challenge, with an award ceremony held in Sydney, Australia in October 11, is the only competition in the world in which the judges select and invite the wines that participate. This year’s judges—Eduardo Brethauer of Chile, Huon Hooke of Australia, Bob Campbell MW of New Zealand, Michael Fridjhon of South Africa, Christopher Waters of Canada, and Patrick Comiskey of the USA—chose the winners from among the participating 600 wines.
