Wine Show Public Tasting, 18 October 2013

Of course, I had to man the Shiraz table, along with Michelle from Heifer Station and Ben from Angullong, and were we ever busy! We went through 6 bottles of Moodys and 3 or 4 of each of the others.  My neighbour Badger has made a very good Shiraz this year too.  Must be the Emu Swamp TERROIR!

Angela Owens of the local ABC station came for a taste, and so did a lot of medical students who are working in Orange.



BEST RED IN ORANGE, and Best Shiraz, at the Orange Wine Show 2013

Moody’s 2013 Shiraz won the trophy this year for the best Shiraz in Orange. The judges said “it was a clear stand out”.  Having secured that, the wine went on to be chosen as the BEST RED overall in the 2013 Wine Show. After winning the Trophy last year for the 2012 Sauvignon Blanc,  Tony feels he “got there”. No more “getting there…”

Tony and Chris with the trophies!


Chris Derrez building a new winery

Chris Derrez, my winemaker, is building a new winery near Mt Canobolas, only 10km from town.  Big job but it is going to be so much easier for us, his customers, delivering grapes. Good luck Chris!
