Barossa Wine Show 2018: the winners!

Riesling has secured its place in the heart of Barossa’s winemaking industry, with an impressive 7 wins at this year’s Barossa Wine Show. Peter Lehmann Wines 2015 Riesling swept the pool, taking out 5 trophies, including the Hahn Corporation Trophy for Most Outstanding Barossa White Wine, The Seguin Moreau Trophy for Most Outstanding Barossa Single Vineyard Wine and Wine of Show – The MTA- Mobile Travel Agents / Qatar Airways Trophy for Most Outstanding Barossa Wine. On accepting the Wine of Show Trophy, Peter Lehmann Wines Senior Winemaker (and 2018 Len Evans Scholar) Tim Dolan dedicated the win to the wine’s namesake, Andrew Wigan.

The Best 2018 Riesling went to Rieslingfreak No. 4 Eden Valley Riesling.

Unsurprisingly, the judging panel were particularly taken with the varietal, noting “it’s classes like this (2017 Riesling) that keep us coming back to judge wine shows. Some truly beautiful examples of one of the region’s true treasures.” 

The awards also shone a light on the quality of the region’s small winemakers. Quin Wines are celebrating 4 wins in their first year of entry, including Best 2016 Shiraz, Best 2017 Shiraz, Best Shiraz (classes 9, 10 & 11) and Most Successful Exhibitor – Small Producer.  Winemaker and owner, Andrew Quin humbly commenting “the 2016 Shiraz class in particular was amazing and it was a nice surprise to come out on top.”

Barossa Grenache continued its charge with St John’s Road awarded the Rod Schubert Most Outstanding Barossa Red Table Wine for their 2017 The Resilient Grenache.
