27 Aug Gold Medal – Barossa’s Marananga Wine Show
A yet to be released wine from Roenfeldt Hill, gained a mighty 56.5 points out of max 60 at last weekend’s Marananga Wine Show. Our 2011 Ironstone Blend ZSGM took the fancy of the judging panel, which was headed by internationally acclaimed wine journalist Nick Stock, author of The Good Wine Guide and winner of the Best Drinks Journalist for the 2007 Cordon Bleu World Food Media Awards.
Judge’s comments: “Big zin style, ripe and bright, lush, lovely drink, long, clean, fruit driven, aromatic, juicy, bright” GOLD
Around 200 people attended the tastings and award night, the show having a record number of entries. An Australian first, and possibly a world first, the wine is a unique blend of Zinfandel, Shiraz, Grenache and Mataro, but as this is our first year of adding value to our grapes, only approximately 250 cases will be available.
