Heron Ridge 2006 wins Double Gold

“Finally a wine competition where the wines are judged not only by the wine professionals, but also by the wine drinkers who enjoy consuming the wines as launched by Winestyle magazine.”

THE WineStyle People’s Choice awards 2014 is this new competition which is judged by the people who drink our wine!

Six professional judges and 15 keen wine drinkers tasted the wines blind. All they knew was the varietal and the price category. Shiraz was the varietal with the most double golds and our 2006 was one of them. Well done to Pippa Orpen who was the winemaker and blender. We only bottled about 1500 bottles after 2 years in barrel. Mostly french and 30% new wood. The rest of the vintage was bottled as The Flight 2006 which won a silver.
