That wine won five trophies: Best Wine of Show, Best White Table Wine, Best Chardonnay, Best Western Australian Table Wine and Best Western Australian White Table Wine.
It also won three trophies at the same awards last year including for Best White Table Wine, Best Chardonnay and Best Western Australian White Table Wine.
“To be singled out as one of the best wines in Australia and to also win back-to-back trophies is an incredible achievement, and something the whole Evans & Tate team should be proud of,” Evans & Tate winemaker Feleasha Prendergast says.
“It’s an amazing and epic result for Margaret River, especially to win against the Margaret River Cabernets which are amongst the best in the world.”
Fogarty Wine Group chief winemaker Julian Langworthy says, “There are few Chardonnay wines that have such an incredible and consistent history of excellence.
“The 2020 Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay is another in a very long line of highly awarded wines from the Evans & Tate stable.
“To win five trophies in a single show is almost unheard of, and a huge feat.
“This win is especially epic following the recent trophy wins for the 2021 Redbrook Estate Chardonnay at the Sydney Royal Wine Show last month.”
In the six years since the Evans & Tate Redbrook ranges were released, the wines have won 19 trophies and 138 gold medals across national and international wine shows.
Fogarty Wine Group’s Dalwhinnie 2022 LDR Shiraz was awarded a trophy and crowned Best Shiraz at the Perth Royal Wine Awards.
“The LDR Shiraz is an exciting wine and to have won a trophy on its release speaks to the immense quality of the Dalwhinnie ‘The Eagle’ vineyard site,” Julian says.
“Whilst this is a contemporary, new look wine, this award is recognition that we have maintained the traditions of the iconic, award-winning Dalwhinnie wines.”
