Tamburlaine Organic Wines was the most successful recipient at the 2019 Australian Highlands Wine Show ceremony held on the 20th September, winning 9 of the 15 trophies awarded on the night. Their 2019 On The Grapevine Riesling from Orange in NSW stole the show, winning Best Wine in Show, Best White Wine and Best Riesling. The Tamburlaine reds made a clean sweep, being awarded Best Red Wine, Best Merlot, Best Cabernet Sauvignon, Best Other Red Variety, Best Red Blend and Best Shiraz.
These awards came shortly after the three trophies awarded to Tamburlaine Wines at the Australian Cool Climate Wine Show for the Best Pinot Gris, Best Merlot and Best Alternate Red.
For Aaron Mercer, Senior Winemaker at Tamburlaine Organic Wines, receiving these awards was an incredibly humbling experience. He thanks the vineyard and winery teams for their constant efforts to improve quality and consistency across wines and vintages.
These are fantastic shows with excellent judging panels, chaired respectively this year by Toni Paterson MW (Australian Highlands Wine Show) and Greer Carland (Australian Cool Climate Wine Show).
