The Bali-based Indonesian wine producer Cape Discovery has just returned from London and the prestigious International Wine and Spirits Competition (IWSC) with a bronze metal for their Sauvignon Blanc made from Margaret River Valley grapes vinified in Indonesia.

The IWSC traces its roots to the Club Oenologique launched in 1969 by Anton Massel who pioneered the idea of creating a competition that weighed both organoleptic judgment (evaluation by the senses: taste, sight, smell, and touch) together with an exacting chemical analysis of the competing wines.

In 1978 the name of the competition was changed to the International Wine and Spirit Competition but retained the same strict technical controls to ensure quality of production remains central to the IWSC.

All wines and spirits seeking honors in London at IWSC must undergo a two-stage judging involving blind tastings and detailed chemical and microbiological analysis. With the devil in the detail, tastings of all wines is done by the glass (not the bottle) in temperature-controlled cellars and three dedicated tasting rooms.

All products tested and tasted must come from commercial stocks and meet EU legal requirements or risk losing points.

Cape Discovery Sauvignon Blanc
Bronze Medal for Best Dry White Wine

The 2011 vintage of Cape Discovery Sauvignon Blanc earned Bronze in the dry white wine class at IWSC, sharing honors with Penfolds, Jacob Creek and Oyster Bay wines who also secured Bronze medals in the same category.

The award marks the first time that an Indonesian made wine has won honors in this category at IWSC in London.

Cape Discovery’s unique approach to producing wine in Bali sees grapes that are carefully cultivated under the Indonesian wine company’s control in Margaret River, Western Australia. Using an innovative natural technique, the grapes are carefully transported to Indonesia where traditional wine making is undertaken.

A justifiably proud Richard Irving of Cape Discovery Wine said: “Cape Discovery has pioneered a truly novel concept with clearly outstanding results. Cape Discovery has already found many fans in Indonesia and are quickly becoming the wines of choice among locals and tourists due to their outstanding international quality at affordable prices.”

The Cape Discovery Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc has been crafted to pair with Asian cuisine. The color is pale green with lifted aromas of mouth-watering lime and asparagus. Fresh and flavorsome, the palate is bursting with tropical fresh zingy fruit with a fine persistent finish.
