Peregrine Ridge Wins Trophy for Best Sparkling Red at the 2014 Australian Sparkling Wine Show

Peregrine Ridge has won the trophy for the Best Sparkling Red at the 2014 Australian Sparkling Wine Show.

The winning wine was the 2006 Winemaker’s Reserve Sparkling Shiraz Late Disgorge.  Matured in 100% new French oak for 18 months and then bottle fermented for a further 81 months, it is a fine example of the style.

Peregrine Ridge has now won this trophy for successive vintages of this wine, with the 2005 Winemaker’s Reserve Sparkling Shiraz Late Disgorge scooping up the trophy in 2011.

The judges were all sparkling wine experts and included:

  • Greg Melick (Chairman of Judges - respected national and international wine judge)
  • Ian McKenzie (Seppelts chief sparkling winemaker for many years)
  • Glenn Thompson (Domain Chandon chief sparkling winemaker)
  • David Cowburn (Managing Director, Kilchurn Wines - sparkling wine specialists)

So, according to the judges, Heathcote is once again, the home of the best Sparkling Red in Australia!!

The Winemaker’s Reserve Sparkling Shiraz is well suited to terrines, duck and Christmas fare.  This wine is being released in early December, in time for the festive celebrations.

Peregrine Ridge Wins Two Trophies and Gold at the 2014 Le Concours des Vins de Victoria

Peregrine Ridge’s 2006 Limited Release Heathcote Shiraz shone at the 2014 Le Concours des Vins de Victoria, taking out the trophy for the Best Open Class Shiraz and then topping that by winning the trophy for the Best Red Wine in Show.

Le Concours des Vins started 24 years ago in 1990.  Run by the French-Australian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, it is a meeting of two proud wine-producing cultures - French and Australian.  It is a place ‘where Victorian terroirs and aromas meet with the French palate’.  In 2014 Le Concours des Vins de Victoria once again welcomed Bernard Burtschy, wine writer for popular French daily newspaper Le Figaro as the Chair of the panel of French judges.

The 2014 Le Concours des Vins de Victoria showcased a fabulous line-up of more than 475 Victorian wines from over 100 wineries.  The award ceremony and tasting extravaganza saw a large crowd of wine and food connoisseurs enjoying their favourite Victorian wines with beautiful French cheese, traditional French pâtés and charcuterie.

Our 2006 "Limited Release" is a single vineyard, barrel selected wine based on the use of French oak barrels.  The wine was matured in 50% new and 50% second use barrels for 23 months prior to bottling.  It is just starting to express its full potential as a fine, elegant, complex and savoury wine.  It will continue to develop for many years to come but in the meantime, if you want something special to enjoy during the festive season it is Graeme's choice with the Christmas fare!
