GOLD - National Wine Show of Australia

Congratulations to our Winemakers on another Gold Medal awarded to our Limited Release 2018 Vintage Touriga at the recent National Wine Show of Australia (postponed from 2021).

This is one of our really special and most highly awarded wines. Don't take just our word for it, see what the reviewers have to say...

"...the ever reliable multi-tasker, makes for a fabulous vintage fortified retaining its juicy blueberry, black cherry, licorice, violet aromatics and intensity of flavour elevated by attractive brandy spirit." 93 Points, 2022 Halliday Wine Companion

“I often overlook the beauty of fortified wines in Australia, but this was one that turned my head. I loved the volume of perfume, the exuberance of spice, the dark, caramel-molasses-like flavours. While very rich and showing thickness of texture, there’s an innate freshness that lifts and brightens. Indeed, this feels quite youthful, despite all the concentration and intensity of dark, dried fruits, nuts and spice. A fantastic winter warmer. Long may the fortified wines of Australia reign”. Mike Bennie, Gourmet Traveller Wine

“Fantastic nose full of floral spirit, dark chocolate and licorice. Great length and intensity of sweet varietal fruit flavours with balancing tannins and dry finish.” 98 points, Winestate Magazine

So if you haven't tried this unique and delicious fortified yet, now is the perfect time!
