The Adelaide Hills Wine Show is the most prestigious wine show of the region and represents hundreds of producers and winemakers alike. It’s a great chance to see what’s going on in the region and sample a variety of vintages from a large cross section of varietals.
I was pleased that we received medals for all three of our entered wines: a silver medal for the 2015 ‘Uley Vineyard’ Pinot Noir while the 2015 Piccadilly Valley Chardonnay & 2017 Sauvignon Blanc were both awarded Bronze. The competition was stiff, but I was happy with the result and to be recognised by my peers throughout the region.
The award winning 2015 Pinot Noir is currently only available through the cellar door or our online store. So now the weather has become more accommodating to scenic drives through the wonderful Adelaide Hills, drop through the cellar door and enjoy the garden, the platters, the company and of course the real star of the show – the wine. Else click on the bottle and explore the options of having it delivered directly to you.
Uley Vineyard Piccadilly Valley Pinot Noir 2015
“32 year old vines, destemmed, 35% whole bunches, open ferment, cultured yeast after 5 days cold soak, 12 days on skins, matured in barriques (22% new) for 10 months. The highly fragrant and flowery bouquet is a Siamese twin with the lively, juicy palate complexity and length from the whole-bunch component. A seductive wine that grew and grew on retasting”. – James Halliday’s 2017 Wine Companion
