The 2019 KPMG Sydney Royal Wine Show recently announced its results, and amongst the great wines highlighted with awards was the 2013 McGuigan Bin 9000 Semillon, which received the 2019 NSW Department of Primary Industries James Busby Perpetual Trophy for Best NSW Wine.
This is an extremely impressive title to hold as the James Busby Perpetual Trophy is awarded to the wine from NSW that has achieved the highest total medal score in NSW-based wine shows over the previous 12 months. To be eligible, the wine must have received a gold medal at a regional wine show as well as at the Sydney Royal Wine Show, and have received a bronze, silver or gold medal at the NSW Wine Awards.
“Our 2013 McGuigan Bin 9000 Semillon has put in an outstanding performance at the 2019 wine shows, winning eight trophies at Australia’s four leading wine competitions this year already,” said Neil McGuigan, Chief Winemaker at McGuigan Wines.
“To also be recognised with the James Busby Perpetual Trophy is a truly great honour. It is a privilege to follow in the footsteps of the man considered to be the 'father' of the Australian wine industry, and we are incredibly proud to represent the Hunter Valley on the global stage.”
