2009 She-Oak Hill Wins Winewise Gold Medal

Posted by Jane Leckie. Filed under Awards, Releases

The recently released 2009 She-Oak Hill Estate Shiraz has been awarded a score of 55.5 /60  in the Winewise Small Vigneron Awards. This wine has maintained a proud tradition of gold medals in these awards for small wineries which crush less than 250 tonnes of fruit.  She-Oak Hill crushes around 20 tonnes. The judges’ comments published in the August edition of  Winewise are:

Highly Recommended: ‘The combination of perfectly ripe fruit and spiciness is very appealing, as is the nicely textured, long, balanced palate. ‘

This great result is supported by a rating of 92 in the 2011 Wine Companion and the comment - ’Solid red-purple; the generosity of the fruit is immediately evident on the bouquet and palate alike ….

    Had our first ever She-Oak, the Estate Shiraz ’09, tonight here in Dunolly. It was bought at La Piazza in Bendigo.

    Great stuff.

    Cheers from the bush,
