Harry and Pip looked rather like movie stars when they went up to receive their gold medal from Decanter for the Rosé 2011. It was great to meet Stephen Spurrier, who has now planted his own vineyard in Dorset. For those keen to know the stats: 102 UK wines entered - 3 were awarded gold medals and internationally 15,007 wines entered - 454 were awarded gold medals.
*Competitions are strange things when it comes to wine and it's always hard not to like the ones you do well in and raise an eyebrow when the judges don't see things the way you do. Obviously we think Decanter is the best of the best.
