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 Trophy for Best Sparkling Wine at the 2015 Heathcote Wine Show

Peregrine Ridge has won the trophy for the Best Sparkling Wine at the 2015 Heathcote Wine Show.

The winning wine was the 2006 Winemaker’s Reserve Sparkling Shiraz Late Disgorge which recently won gold and trophy for the Best Sparkling Red at the Australian Sparkling Wine Show.  It is elegant, silky, fruit driven and balanced, and the perfect accompaniment to terrine, pate, duck and game meats.

The bouquet is a seductive amalgam of raspberries, cherries, plums and blackberries with a hint of yeast and spice. A finely textured palate follows, dominated by lifted raspberries, cherries and plums.

This wine was matured in 100% new French oak for 18 months and then bottle fermented for a further 81 months. The extended time on lees delivers a fine, persistent bead and creamy mousse.

Peregrine Ridge Wins Gold at the 2015 Daylesford Wine Show

Peregrine Ridge has just won a gold award for its Non-Vintage Sparkling Heathcote Shiraz at the 2015 Daylesford Wine Show.  This Sparkling Shiraz was the highest scoring sparkling red in the Sparkling Wine class.  The judges noted that this was a "good class, with top award winners showing freshness and complexity.”

This is the second cuvee of our Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz and it follows in the footsteps of our first cuvee which won 2 Trophies and 4 Gold Awards.  This cuvee has been dosaged with a small quantity of estate grown fortified Shiraz, which adds richness and complexity.  The cuvee was matured in 50% new French and 50% seasoned French and American oak for 11 months prior to bottling and then bottle fermented for a further 24 months, to enable the cuvee to fully develop its bottle fermentation characteristics.

It is the perfect accompaniment to Christmas fare including fruit mince pies, fruit cake and shortbread!

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!
