CC Jentsch Wines Gold and Silver
There were two more awards added to the CC Jentsch collection recently. The winery won a gold for their 2012 Syrah and a silver for their 2013 The Chase, from the recent 2014 BC Wine awards.
This makes six awards this year for the Syrah which won silver medals at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2014 in England, the Pacific Rim International Wine Competition 2014 in California, and the National Wine Awards of Canada 2014 in Ontario. It also won the silver and judges choice award at the World Wine Awards of Canada 2014 in Ontario as well as a bronze at the International Wine Challenge 2014 in England.
The Chase, a claret coloured five varietal Bordeaux style blend, is no stranger to winning. The 2012 The Chase won bronze from the Decanter World Wine Awards of 2014 and the Pacific Rim International Wine Competition as well as being a finalist in the BC Best of Varietal Awards for 2014.
"Our Syrah is a full bodied wine which was co-fermented with 6% Viognier," explains Chris Jentsch, who was thrilled with the awards his wine has won. "The Chase is a mixture of Cab Sav, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot."
Chris Jentsch grew up in the Okanagan and was a fruit farmer for most of his life. In 2002 he switched from cherries to grapes and in 2012 he turned his fruit packing warehouse into a cellar and tasting room. Their winemaker, Amber Pratt, moved to the Okanagan in 2009 and is highly knowledgeable on the grapes and conditions in the south Okanagan.
"We are honoured to be acknowledged for our work in the wine industry," said Jentsch. "Our entire team works very hard, and it is great to see that hard work rewarded at the BC Wine Awards.
