The judges for this competition are a small team of sparkling wine specialists who blind taste every single wine entered. Only 75 Best in Class awards are presented and 9 National Trophies. No.1 Family Estate is very proud to be among these world-class producers.

Judge Essi Avellans said “For me, learning what our Best in Classes are is only second to the excitement of the World Champion Trophies. I truly enjoyed the Best in Class selection process this year, when we put our heads and palates together to select ‘the one’ amongst all the very good Gold Medal quality contenders within every region and category. These Best In Class are world-class wines.”

Ellie Vincent, Marketing Manager No.1 Family Estate said “We have been eagerly awaiting the results of this competition after it was originally delayed due to COVID-19. Thank you to the judges and organisers who pulled this competition together and executed safely despite the COVID level restrictions in the UK.

This award-winning sparkling Rosé is made in the traditional method using 100% Pinot Noir. It celebrates the superb climate of Marlborough and has a fresh, youthful and precise bouquet of flowers, cherry and strawberries. Delicate salmon-pink in colour with a mass of tiny bubbles. The palate is dry and elegant with a fine and silky mousse.
