We are excited and proud to announce that the 2017 Basso Garnacha has taken out multiple trophies in the Royal Queensland Wine show!
Grenache extends its winning streak and moment in the sun as the hottest grape variety in Australia by winning the following trophies at the 2018 Royal Queensland Wine Show.
Best Grenache, Best Rhone Varietal or Rhone blend
Best Red Wine at Show
Stodart Trophy for Best Young Red Table Wine.
This is the first time the Stodart Trophy has been won by a Grenache and Steve couldn’t be prouder. Grenache as a variety has now won the major trophy at the Melbourne, Mclaren Vale, Barossa and Queensland wine shows. Further and possibly even more exciting, it’s probably the first low sulphur, non-filtered red wine to win any major trophy in Australia!
“I am proud of my part in furthering Grenache’s cause and believe that this wine represents a modern take on Australian red wine from a warm climate. Basso Garnacha is made for our way of life: medium-bodied, flavoursome and utilitarian”
