We’ve had some good success with our wines at various shows over the years and it’s always nice to receive accolades. With some wines though it’s particularly rewarding. One example is our 2013 Limited Release Lynedoch which has recently won the Top 100/Blue Gold award at the Sydney International Wine Competition.
The reason I’m so pleased about this is twofold; firstly, this competition is judged with food, so the judges taste all the wines entered and the top 20% are taken to the next stage where they are judged alongside food. This is a big logistical job but what a great idea to ascertain the quality of a wine in its appropriate setting! The second reason this award is so pleasing is that it shows the rewards of patience! As our top Bordeaux blend (Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot) this wine is a pretty serious one and needs time in bottle to develop and show its true potential, it’s just starting to hit it’s straps now and we’re pleased to see that development being recognised.
