The annual Singapore Airlines Swan Valley Wine Show was recently held in which we entered several wines. We are pleased to have received Gold medals for our 2012 bottle aged Chenin Blanc and the 2013 bottle aged Chenin Blanc. We also received silver medals for our 2016 Swan Valley Chardonnay and 2017 Verdelho.
The awards dinner was held on Friday 24th August where we were extremely proud and happy to be presented with the Alan Dinneen Memorial trophy for the 2013 Chenin Blanc.
The trophy is named in honour of Alan, a stalwart of the Swan and the trophy is awarded by the Chief Judge at the show for the wine of their choice that they believe is a standout at the show, exhibiting a style, complexity, vibrancy and quality that makes a statement and most represents the Swan Valley region.
One week later judging was held at the Perth Royal Wine Show where our 2012 Chenin Blanc received a Silver Medal and bronze for the 2013 Chenin Blanc and 2016 Petit Verdot. The 2012 Chenin will be released in early October.
It is always pleasing to receive industry acknowledgement for the hard work carried out in the vineyard and winery.
