Fermoy Takes the Crown For World's Best Cabernet

We're thrilled to announce that Fermoy Estate has been crowned with the supreme award for World’s Best Cabernet in France, the birthplace of Cabernet Sauvignon, at the 2015 Concours International des Cabernets for its Fermoy Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

The  sommeliers met on a Bateau Parisien, an exceptional site at the foot of the Eiffel Tower, to taste 230 wines and decide which wine would receive the award for World’s Best Cabernet, the highest honour awarded at the International Competition of Cabernets.

Cabernets are so diverse that their tasting requires a high level of expertise and specialised knowledge. This is why the tasting was performed by a jury made up exclusively of sommeliers who are members of the UDSF (Union de la Sommellerie Française). This years competition had the honour of being presided over by a highly renowned sommelier, Jean-Luc Jamrozik, President of the Sommeliers de Paris.

Fermoy's Reserve 100% Cabernet Sauvignon from Margaret River was taken for a second tasting by an expert jury. Tasters were torn between the Australian wine and a Swiss wine with a Valais PDO, 100% Cabernet Franc from Gregor Kuonen, Caveau De Salquenen. The two wines were both superb, each in its own category, in the end it was Fermoy's Cabernet Sauvignon that earned the ‘World’s Best Cabernet’ title.
