Hold the press people! After 3 yrs of hard work we have finally pulled off our first gold medal since Dad died! I am supa proud and amongst some heavy weight winemakers with 10-20 yrs more experience. A very promising start!
We are a tad excited!!
Gold for our 2014 Reserve Riesling!
So Happy. Basically I have been involved in the Qantas Wine show for 3 years now. And have only been entering this show for those years. Every year I talk to the wine judges about our Riesling. Every Year I try all the Rieslings and look at styles. Then I take this knowledge back to the vineyard and lab and look at our Riesling and where we can improve. Improvement was seen last year when i just miss out on gold. But This year we have come throu with the goods and I couldn't be happier.......and I am telling everyone!
Silver for our 2012 Merlot.
So there I was putting stickers on wines at the wine show as part of my stewards duties and..........Snap! Silver & best in class for our Merlot. Merlot never show well do to a few politics of clones in Aust but this Silver is well worth being proud of!! This is a great wine. Juicy sweet fruit with fine tannins and structure, smooth and well balanced.
Bronze for our 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon
We also received a bronze for our 2012 Cab Sauv but was very close to a silver. After having a chat with the judges 2 judges gave me silver and the other a bronze so I was a little unlucky not to get a silver but thats how shows work. I am still really happy with that!
