LA FRENZ wins!
LA FRENZ wines awarded 6 PLATINUM Awards, 3 of which were DOUBLE PLATINUMS at the 14th annual Platinum Judging
We were pleased to have learned that once again, the Tawny was awarded a DOUBLE PLATINUM along with the 2009 Grand Total Reserve and the 2012 Alexandria. Furthermore, the Tawny was chosen as #37 in the Great Northwest Wines Top 100 list!
The 2012 Sauvignon Blanc, the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon and the 2011 Reserve Pinot Noir all received PLATINUM medals.
In addition to these top medals, the following wines were recognized with a DOUBLE GOLD medal: the Liqueur Muscat, the 2011 Vivant, the 2011 Ensemble and the 2011 Riesling; and GOLD for the 2011 Reserve Chardonnay and the 2011 Viognier.
Since the beginning 14 years ago, the Wine Press Northwest magazine has invited only recently awarded gold medal wines to compete against one another. Titled the Platinum Judging, the goal of this competition is to determine the “best of the best” of the Pacific Northwest region.
This year there were 634 gold medal winners judged by an experienced panel of judges who were hand selected for their experience in judging at numerous international and regional wine competitions. The wines are tasted blind and the judges have no knowledge of producer or price. We’re honoured and proud that all our entries won such notable recognition!
We are located on the beautiful Naramata Bench in the heart of the Okanangan Valley. At LA FRENZ , we believe the quality in the bottle begins in the vineyard. Cutting edge and meticulous vineyard practices are used in combination with varieties tailored to the unique soils and micro climates of our vineyard sites to produce the vibrant and intense grape characters found only in the Okanagan Valley. The potential of the resulting fruit, using experience and careful stewardship throughout the vinification process, is maintained and enhanced to create exceptional wines that truly reflect the grape variety and vineyard site.
We welcome you to our unique wine shop overlooking Lake Okanagan. This spectacular view was featured on the $100 banknote from 1954 to 1975.
