Double Gold Medal + 96 Points!

Our single vineyard, barrel fermented aged riesling was awarded a double gold medal with 96 points last week, and it was also named Wine of the Year by country at the Sommeliers Choice Awards in San Francisco.

 The Sommeliers Choice Awards attracted hundreds of international entries, and were judged by top sommeliers, wine buyers and directors from some of the USA’s most acclaimed restaurants.

The McNicol Riesling 2008 was one of only four wines to be awarded a double gold at the 2019 event, while the McNicol Shiraz 2008 was awarded a gold medal and 94 points.

The grapes for McNicol Riesling are grown without irrigation nor exposure to herbicides or pesticides. The wine is fermented with natural, indigenous yeasts in a 3000 litre French oak foudre and aged on its lees in the barrel for 12 months. After 10 years of bottle age, the wine shows intense spice, citrus fruit with a long lingering mineral palate.

 While the McNicol Riesling 2008 has sold out in Australia, the 2009 vintage is currently available and has been awarded 96 points by James Halliday.
