2 Trophies at the 6 Nations Wine Challenge

We have had success again, this time at the Six Nations Wine Challenge.  This is a unique wine show where the six judges, one each from Australia (Huon Hooke), NZ, South Africa, Chile, Argentina and the US, invite and judge the best representative wines from those countries.  We had 2 wines involved, the 2012 R9 and the 2010 R139.

The 2012 R9  won trophies for Best Riesling and Best White Wine of Show.

Good Food Review – 2012 Pressing Matters R9 Riesling

This is a blinder of a riesling, with a powerful fragrance of kaffir lime leaf and great intensity in the mouth, allied with great delicacy. It has nine grams per litre of sweetness, but barely tastes off-dry, thanks to vibrant acidity. The palate is juicy, energetic and very long. 10 per cent alcohol.
