GOLD for both our 2015 Shiraz & 2020 Pinot Blanc
SILVER for 2019 Riesling
BRONZE for 2018 Grüner V5, 2016 Malbec, 2013 Somerville and A Trio of Pinot Sparkling Rosè
That makes an awesome tally of seven medals in what is regarded as the most prestigious wine show in Australia.
We are proud on so many levels. Proud of Paracombe Wines, for our family, team, growers and the Adelaide Hills Wine Region. Great credit to the 2020 Adelaide Wine Show Committee who made the decision to go ahead with the show this year despite Covid-19. This year 396 exhibitors entered 2,834 wines, the highest number of entries since 2012.
We are absolutely thrilled with this result.
2013 Cellar Reserve Blue Gold Winner
2020 Sydney International Wine Competition
Paracombe 2013 Cellar Reserve was awarded Blue Gold in the Fuller Bodied Dry Reds Category and our 2015 Cabernet Franc, Gold in the Medium Bodied Dry Reds Category in the 2020 Sydney International Wine Competition.
The SIWC is one of the most prestigious wine competitions in Australia. Limited to 2,000 entries from producers around the world, the wines undergo a rigorous judging process where they are judged with food by an International Judging panel.
Here are some of the judges’ comments about our 2013 Cellar Reserve –
“The palate is bright and fruity, medium-to-full in body with fruit brightness, softness and freshness. I do enjoy the energy in this wine. The wine matches the food beautifully due to its moderate intensity of flavour, fruit brightness and freshness.” Toni Patterson
“Spiced oak, fruit forward style, dark choc mint slice, medium firm tannins, stand up well, food really brings forward the integration of fruit and oak.” Stuart James Halliday.
Our new A Trio of Pinot, Sparkling Rosè featured in Gourmet Traveller magazine with a lovely little write up by Max Allen. This is what he had to say…
‘Here’s something different: three varieties form the same grape family – pinot noir, blanc and grid blended together to produce a superb sparkling rosè that’s floral, fruity and creamy on the tongue. Perfect picnic wine.’
We’re excited Paracombe features in The Producers, a wonderful book showcasing the stories of 100 South Australia food, wine and spirit producers. It’s a real privilege to be included and recognized as one of SA’s finest producers.
This gorgeous book is available at our online shop and cellar door for $34.95 each and makes the perfect coffee table accompaniment or gift for that someone special.
