Silverstream Wines of Denmark, Western Australia has received a gold medal for their 2010 Sparkling Chardonnay.
The WA Wine Show, now in its 40th year, has never awarded a gold medal in the history of the show – only ever awarding silver as the highest medal reached in previous years.
Silverstream Wines owner, Tony Ruse, stated “We knew we were onto something good when the Sparkling won a silver medal in 2014 with the judges’ commenting – A disappointing class with one stand out exception – that being Silverstream Wines”.
Persistence has paid off with the Silverstream Sparkling Chardonnay topping the class and making it into the Top 50 Wines of WA.
The recently released 2011 Sparkling has further ageing on lees which is the key success to the cool climate Sparkling.
Just in time for the festive season, the Sparkling is available online.
