As a rule, we don’t enter wine competitions, but every now and then our wines end up at random tasting events (entered by our agents). On 21 September, a group of five UK wine writers (all Cinsault enthusiasts) gathered in North London for a blind tasting of 37 Cinsaults from five countries. South Africa was the most represented country followed by Chile, France, the US and Lebanon. The wines were scored individually with scores averaged out to give an overall ranking.
