Sommelier Wine Awards, by the on trade for the on trade: double gold mendals for Losada and Losada Godello

Losada Godello 2015

Timothy Connor of Bread Street Kitchen liked this Gold-winning Godello’s ‘fresh lemon and jasmine, well-rounded character’, while Portland Restaurant’s James Fryer highlighted ‘smoke and hazelnuts, under-ripe guava aromas with flavours of almond milk, peach skin and baking spices’. For Chez Bruce’s Sarah Bachiorri, this was reminiscent of ‘a baked apple pie, with a salty finish – nice texture and richness’. £12.99 Matthew Clark

Losada, Crianza, Bierzo, 2011,

A red Gold to complement Losada’s equivalent white win, this was ‘revealing a bit of age, with tobacco leaf, mushroom and mature leather notes on the nose, perfect for a steak house’, began The Sign of the Don’s Carlos Ferreira, with Robert Mason of Cheese at Leadenhall finding: ‘Lots of sweet spices, earthy cigar box and pipe tobacco notes, a meaty nose then lots of brooding, dark fruits with ripe, grippy tannins on a balanced, complex palate.’ A match for ox cheek, thought team leader Sarah Jane Evans MW. £10.98 Matthew Clark
The Sommelier Wine Awards is a wine competition with a difference. As Britain’s only on-trade wine competition, it focuses entirely on wines aimed at the on-trade. Since it started in 2007 it has grown to become the first point of reference for the UK's on-trade wine buyers as well as the key competition for wines trying to increase their presence in hotels, pubs, bars and restaurants across the world. The SWA judges all serve or buy wine for their venues in the on-trade, or are leading consultants. Wines with general distribution in the ?high street are not permitted to enter, except for sparkling and fortified wines, or merchants' online-exclusive wines.
