Heifer Station Best Wine Of Orange Show

By Thursday 25 November 2021No Comments

Heifer Station 2019 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir has been named Best Wine of the Show at the 2021 Orange Wine Show.

The wine also won Best Red Wine of the Show, Best Single Vineyard and Best Pinot Noir.

Entries were down about 30 percent due to a difficult 2020 vintage.

Highlights came from the Sparkling, Pinot Nor, Chardonnay and Shiraz classes.

“This year has a nice spread of producers being awarded trophies, showing that there are a number of wine businesses pushing for high quality wines in Orange, which is terrific for the region,” show judge Jeff Byrne says.

Tom Ward, president of the Orange Region Vigneron Association says, “The last 12 months have been interesting with Covid seeing further restrictions at our cellar doors.

“The vintage of 2021 is small but extremely high quality, we’ve seen that with the aromatic whites in this year’s show and we’re excited about the wines being released for vintage 2021.

“Overall, we’re very pleased with the results and the feedback from the wine show judges.

“We’re lucky to have judges recognise that Orange as a wine region is going from strength to strength.

“The region’s vignerons, viticulturists and winemakers are focused on quality first and making sure Orange wine continues to represent some of the best wine in Australia.”
