Celebrating Wine Week

Posted by Jane Leckie. Filed under Community, Events

To celebrate Melbourne Wine Week, in the aftermath of the Royal Melbourne Show judging, Regional medalists were invited to join RMWA  medal and Trophy winners at the annual Uncorked event at Collins Place and to show their medal winning wines.

Promoted as ‘every wine lovers’ excuse to sip and savour over 300 medal and trophy winning wines from this year’s Royal Melbourne Wine Awards and regional Victorian wine shows’  it drew a big crowd.

The crowd at the Heathcote table was amazing and the feedback was fantastic. We had on tasting Peregrine Ridge Wine Makers Reserve  2005 Sparkling Shiraz,   McIvor Estate 2008 & 9 Shiraz,  Sanguine ’12 Progeny,  Heathcote Winery The Wilkins Shiraz 2010 and their Mailcoach Shiraz 2008 ,  She Oak Hill 2012  Shiraz and St Michael’s Fortified Shiraz.

The crowd loved the wines and the opportunity to talk to the people behind the wines, frequently commenting that a sales person just did not have the same insight, stories or passion for their product. I came back feeling so proud of  Heathcote and the point of difference we offer. I am sure we won plenty of new Heathcote enthusiasts on the night and it was a great experience to share the pouring with our fellow wine makers.
