Peregrine Ridge Wins Gold at the 2013 Ballarat Wine Show

Trophy and Gold Medals Awarded to the 09 American Oak Blend

Peregrine Ridge has just won another gold medal for its 2009 American Oak Blend Heathcote Shiraz, this time at the 2013 Ballarat Wine Show where it was the highest scoring wine in its class - Class 45, Dry Red Wine - Shiraz, Victorian Section.  The judges noted that this was "a good class with three strong wines, but with others lacking fruit or showing weedy characters".  Now, you wouldn't find those characters in a Peregrine Ridge wine!

This award complements the trophy our 2009 American Oak Blend won last year for the Best Shiraz or Shiraz Blend at the 2012 Daylesford Wine Show.  It has also won gold medals at the 2012 Daylesford Wine Show and the 2012 Riverina Wine Show.  We will be releasing this wine at the Heathcote Wine and Food Festival next weekend so make sure you pop in and say hello and have a taste!

Our American Oak Blend showcases the use of fine grain American Oak and is a really delightful wine with great cellaring potential.  It is intense, refined and elegant.  Matured in 58% new and 42% second use American oak barriques for 21 months prior to bottling, it is definitely going to appeal to those lovers of our American Oak Blend.

The Heathcote Wine and Food Festival is one of the flagship events of Heathcote where around 50 of Heathcote's wine producers showcase some of Australia's best Shiraz (and other varieties) in one place over one great weekend.  This year we will be releasing our 2012 Shearstone Heathcote Shiraz.

As in previous years, there will be tasting seminars hosted by Rob Hicks and for the budding wine enthusiast there will be in depth Masterclasses with Nick Stock!

Tickets start at $40 Sat / $35 Sun (with a standard tasting glass) and if you purchase on-line at www.heathcotewinegrowers.com.au/festival you receive a discount.

If you fancy a premium Shiraz glass, tickets start at $55 Sat / $50 Sun.  There are plenty of options available, so pop onto www.heathcotewinegrowers.com.au/festival and have a look.  You can even book a bus from Melbourne or Bendigo at the same time.

We will be having our own little "Masterclass" too, with a tasting of a museum release from our French oak matured "Limited Release" Shiraz range.

As always, there will be delicious food and regional produce, live music and entertainment for the children.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival.  It must be Shiraz Heaven!

Vintage Chart

From time to time, customers, who have had the patience to lay down some of our wines, contact us to find out when they should be starting to enjoy them.

We have put together this chart to assist with all of our vintage wines.  We have also put together a drinking guide for those fans of our Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz which can be accessed here.

As you can see, if you’re lucky enough to have some of our older vintages, they’re ready to go.  Cheers!

Event Wrap - Picnic with The Mad Hatter - March 2014

Tuked away in the Bendigo Botanical Gardens in mid March we had a Picnic with the Mad Hatter with all the characters you would expect...  Alice, The Mad Hatter himself in triplicate, Rabbit, the Cheshire Cat, The Queen of Hearts in quadruplicate and more!  Now, that’s a Picnic with the Mad Hatter!

Below are some snaps of the day, and what a magical picnic its was...  We all survived but "OFF with his head..." was heard bellowing around the grounds from time to time!
