Cabernet Cleans Up...Consistently

Media Release

Blue Pyrenees have had to clear the shelves to make room for the countless accolades they have accumulated throughout the 2010 Wine Show season.

At the 2010 Victorian Wine Show on Friday 22nd October, the Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 was the star, winning Trophy for Best Cabernet in Show and a gold medal in its class. Although there was stiff competition in it's field, this prestigous award did not come as a huge surprise after also winning gold at the recent Adelaide Wine Show, Ballarat Wine Show and National Cool Climate Wine Show.

The Blue Pyrenees Sparkling Shiraz NV was another big hit at the Victorian Wine Show, picking up the trophy for Best Sparkling Wine in show and a gold medal. This trophy has been known predominately to go to sparkling white wines, demonstrating that the Blue Pyrenees Sparkling Shiraz is a versatile wine of exceptional quality.

At this same show, the Blue Pyrenees Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 also won the Top Gold in it's class after a very succesful year, most notably being recognised as Best Commercial Dry Red (classes 9 to 14) at the Macquarie Bank Sydney Wine Show earlier this year.

And the list continues with more top gold, gold, silver and bronze medals being awarded to Blue Pyrenees from a range of wine shows across Australia, and they aren't expected to lose momentum anytime soon.

Andrew Koerner, Senior Winemaker at Blue Pyrenees couldn't be happier with the results and commends his team on the all the hard work and commitment to creating wines of outstanding quality which have caught the attention of wine show judges, critics and consumers alike.

"Again our Cabernet has managed to dominate wine shows across Australia and this has been no mean feat as the quality of our competitors is as tough as ever, " says Andrew of the recent accomplishments. "It just goes to show that this is a very strong variety for our region, and I maintain that very few Australian wine regions can make cabernet so consistently well".
