Another year is drawing to a close with the characteristic mix of challenges and triumphs from growing a product of the land. The drought has been concerning, however we are always pleasantly surprised by the robust and forgiving nature of the vines, especially our Portuguese varieties.
We have had a fantastic year with awards for many of our wines, with highlights including:
2019 Arinto - Top Gold, Victorian Wines Show
2018 Reserve Tinta Roriz - Best Alternative Variety Trophy, Victorian Wines Show
2018 Fortitude Durif - Gold, Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show
NV Rare Muscat - Champion Fortified Trophy, Australian Small Winemakers Show
NV Classic Topaque - Best Fortified Trophy, Boutique Wine Awards
With limited production of the 2019 Arinto, we have reserved the majority for our members with a three bottle limit per person. This wine will sell fast so please contact us if you would like your allocation.
In 2020, we will celebrate our 145th anniversary. Our new Sales & Marketing Manager, Monique Smith, has put together a fantastic calendar of events throughout the year. We're holding a family-friendly outdoor cinema over Easter, the Festa de Portugal returns in May with Feast High Country and there will be a gala dinner later in the year with some very special wines from our museum. We hope to see you in Rutherglen and wish you a very happy festive season. Safe travels!
Cheers, Natasha Killeen and the S&K team.
