Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz wins Trophy and Gold at the 2017 Australian National Single Vineyard Wine Show

Peregrine Ridge has won the trophy for the Best Single Vineyard Sparkling White or Pink Bottle Fermented Dry Wine at the 2017 Australian National Single Vineyard Wine Show, which is judged in conjunction with the Cowra Wine Show.

The winning wine was the Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz – Cuvee C3-D2.  This wine won Gold in the Sparkling Red/Rose class before taking out the trophy.  This is the second national trophy awarded to this cuvee, the first being the Trophy for Champion Sparkling Wine at the 2016 Australian Small Winemaker’s Show.  It has also received three gold medals.

C3-D2 is a blend of 2012 and 2013 fruit and it follows in the footsteps of the earlier cuvees which have won in aggregate 4 trophies and 8 gold awards.  It has been dosaged with a small quantity of estate grown fortified Shiraz, which adds richness and complexity.  The cuvee was matured in 15% new and 85% seasoned (predominately 1 year old) French and American oak for 20 months prior to bottling and then bottle fermented for a further 36 months, to enable the cuvee to fully develop its rich and complex bottle fermentation characteristics.

Cuvee C3-D2 has a wonderful bouquet of sweet blackberries and raspberries, which follow through to the palate.  Try serving this wine with a rich brie, pate, terrine or duck and if you’re thinking about Christmas in July already, the turkey and ham!




Next Major Event

Heathcote Wine & Food Festival – 6 & 7 October 2018

Peregrine Ridge is proud to be presenting its wines at the Heathcote Wine and Food Festival. The event is being held at the Heathcote Showgrounds, Chauncey Street, Heathcote from 10.30am each day.

The Heathcote Wine and Food Festival is one of the flagship events of Heathcote where around 40 of Heathcote’s wine producers showcase some of Australia’s best Shiraz and exciting alternative varieties in one place over one great weekend. This year we will be releasing our 2012 “Limited Release” Heathcote Shiraz.

Rob Hicks will be hosting tasting seminars throughout the festival. These are complimentary with the platinum ticket and you can select your session time when you book your ticket.

Tickets start at $40 Sat / $30 Sun / $65 Weekend (with a tasting glass) if you purchase online.

If you fancy a platinum ticket, tickets start at $65 Sat / $55 Sun or you can make a weekend of it from $80. There are plenty of options available, so pop online and have a look. You can even book a bus from Melbourne or Bendigo at the same time!

We will be having our own little “Masterclass” too, with tastings of a museum release from our French oak matured “Limited Release” Shiraz range. We will be tasting our 2005 “Limited Release” again due to popular demand.  Last year we sold out early Sunday, so if you want to taste a beautifully integrated 13 year old Heathcote Shiraz, don’t leave it to the last minute!

As always, there will be fabulous food and regional produce, live music and entertainment for the children.

We look forward to seeing you at the festival. It must be Shiraz Heaven!
