We are proud to announce that we have been awarded the Courier-Mail Best Queensland Wine of the show at the prestigious 2017 Royal Queensland Wine Show.
We knew our 2015 Shiraz Viognier was pretty good and weren’t surprised that it received a gold medal. But to gain the trophy for the best Queensland Wine was a pleasant surprise and is icing on the cake.
Another great result for Just Red Wines at the 2017 RASQ wine show in Toowoomba. We were awarded two silver medals: one for our latest release of 2016 Tannat and another for our 2016 Daily Red Shiraz. Our 2015 Shiraz Viognier was also awarded a bronze medal.
Our 2015 Tannat has won yet another trophy. This time it was the Champion Alternative Variety Red Wine at the 2016 Queensland Wine Awards. As well as a gold medal for the Tannat, our Shiraz Viognier 2015 and Cabernet Merlot 2015 also were awarded bronze medals at this event.
A silver medal for our 2015 Shiraz Viognier at the 2016 Royal Queensland Wine show is a fantastic result. We believe that Shiraz Viognier has great potential here in the Granite Belt. Our first two vintages of this great wine have both done well at the shows and have been well received by our customers.
Our 2015 Tannat has received a second trophy. This time for the best Queensland Red in Show at the Cairns Wine Show.
We are excited that both our 2015 Tannat and our 2015 Cabernet Merlot have been awarded gold medals at the 2016 RASQ wine show. Our 2015 Tannat was also awarded the trophy for the best non Mediterranean Red.
Its especially pleasing to get gold for our Tannat when it was only our second vintage of the variety and our first Tannat in 2014 also did very well for us including 94 points from James Halliday.
The gold medal for our Cabernet Merlot 2015 was also fantastic. It was our first Cabernet Sauvignon vintage and we decided to blend it with Merlot which has resulted in an elegant and complex wine.
It was great to see a silver medal awarded to our 2014 Shiraz Viognier at the 2015 Queensland Wine awards. It was also awarded four stars in the subsequent Winestate magazine tasting as well as being top in its category. Our very reasonably priced 2014 Daily Red Shiraz also received a bronze medal at these Queensland Wine Awards.
Snow fell throughout the Granite Belt on 17th July 2015 and we had our fair share. About 10 cm fell in the early hours of Friday morning turning the vineyard into a winter wonderland.
James Halliday has awarded our 2014 Tannat with 94 points meaning “Outstanding. Wines of the highest quality….”
We knew we had a great wine with our Tannat, but its nice to get praise from the highest respected commentators.
Our 2014 Tannat has been awarded a silver medal in the 2015 RASQ Toowoomba Wine Show. It was also awarded the trophy for best Queensland non Mediterranean Red. Bronze medals also went to our popular 2014 Shiraz Viognier and our very reasonably priced 2014 Daily Red Shiraz.
