2021 Riverland Wine Show

This week, team RT made our way up to Barmera for the 2021 Riverland Wine Show. Of course, we had to get the most out of the trip and have a bit of fun, so we cruised on the speed boat down to the Woolshed Brewery for lunch first. Ash was the only crazy one that braved the cold water on a 19º day!

Wine shows are wonderful things! We enter our wines in four or five shows a year. They are a great way to assess the quality of the grapes that we grow and the wines made, by independent parties. The cost of entering can be substantial and the return on investment can, at times, be disappointing. Some argue that the results are very subjective as the perception of quality is deemed by a person’s palate (a wine judge), which can be influenced by many variables. 

 This year, exceeded our expectations, with three trophies, five gold and three silver medals.
