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 ….

It is always good to hear from people about our wine, it is important to us that you share our enthusiasm for She-Oak Hill wines and that you let us know that you do. Below are some recent comments:

….it does seem a bit crazy shipping wine from elsewhere when we live in the heart of the Margaret River region, but we had a couple of bottles of your wine with our friends in Daylesford recently and were just blown away by it. You should be feeling very proud of what you’ve created. SG

Thanks again, it (the ’08 Shiraz) is a really lovely wine. NM

Had to really restrain myself from overdoing my intake of the ‘08 on the last three visits to … the Farmer’s Arms Hotel in Daylesford. RT

Thank you very much for bringing the wine the other day. It was lovely to see you. We opened the Chardonnay (’09) last night and really enjoyed it. JB
