The 46th annual Mudgee Wine Show results were released at the annual wine show dinner on Friday 15th September,

Wine consultant Mike DeGaris chaired the Show along with fellow judges Sue Hodder from Wynns Coonawarra and Stephen Doyle from Bloodwood wines in Orange.

“The Mudgee Wine Show continues to grow in numbers and quality,” commented Mike DeGaris. “This year saw 340 entries judged over the three days.  Of these entries, there was an impressive 203 medals awarded, including 12 Top Gold, 28 Gold, 50 Silver and 113 Bronze medals.”

“The Riesling classes were particularly strong,” continued Mike. “Every wine in the aged Riesling class was a winner. It’s pleasing to see some very strong styles.

“The winemakers are paying detailed attention to their winemaking with very well grown fruit. It revealed a hallmark of the region that these wines can age so gracefully. Westcourt Wines, Robert Stein, Moothi, Bunnamagoo and Lowe are all championing the variety with fantastic results.”

In the red wine classes, Mudgee’s Shiraz continues to shine. “This is a consistently awarded class. The top wines showcased the different regional styles. The 2016 Huntington Estate Special Reserve Shiraz was one of the top scoring wines of the show and a real flagship for the region.”

As well as the trophies for best varietals and champion wines, the Mudgee Wine Show has introduced a new award, The Winemaker of the Year. The inaugural winner of this prestigious award is Robert Stein winemaker, Jacob Stein.
