It’s not every day you win Gold, but on October 7th at the 39th Annual Wine Show of Western Australia Exhibitors Lunch Silverstream did exactly that with our 2012 Riesling in the aged Riesling category.
Still revelling in the gold medal we then went on to pick up not one but two trophies at the Awards dinner held on the 29th October at the Hyatt, Perth WA.
Pam McGregor Trophy
Best Aged Riesling
Silverstream 2012 Riesling
HLB Mann Judd Trophy
Best Single Vineyard Wine
Silverstream Wines Silverstream
The fruit for this Riesling comes from the original Chardonnay root stock planted on the property in 1996 which was grafted over to Riesling that produced this superb drop. Our careful attention to microbiology and viticulture are attributed to this award winning fruit. Handpicked at 11Be, whole bunch pressed and made with cool fermentation and a German selected yeast clone carefully crafted by wine maker Mike Garland.
The award was accepted by Pippa Ruse on behalf of her family “Super proud to be representing Silverstream Wines. Very unexpected and humbled to accept the Pam McGregor and Mann Judd Trophy”
The 2012 Riesling is currently selling, pick up a dozen or 6 pack online through our website or head down to Mosman Park Liquor Barons to pick up a bottle today.
