The Danger Zone is the only trophy in the awards that goes to a wine: with the criteria being around wild originality, risk and reward – the best, most daring wine.
“Dangerously delicious!” declared awards panellist Nick Stock. “A riot of aromas, flavours and uplifting juicy fruit. Effortless enjoyment in a guise we’d not ever seen; drinking this you wonder why it’s taken this long to discover. We were so seduced by the wine and also by the idea of the wine. There’s genius in playing the inherent qualities of the variety to deliver such great impact.”
“Gorgeous aromatics of Turkish delight and roses, this is a brave endeavour that will delight fans of pét-nat, even though traditionally made,” said panellist Abby Moret. “This is such a wildcard of a wine… Somehow, Cavedon have managed to capture the inherent weight of gewürztraminer, while retaining a freshness and drive that is crucial for this to work. Perfectly balanced, impeccably crafted, this sings in the glass and provides a new, much needed revamp of a classic but out-of-vogue variety – a really exciting wine that calls for friends, picnics and another bottle.”
