MUDGEE WINE SHOW RESULTS

MUDGEE WINE SHOW Wine Show Committee: Robert Black, Peter Wormald, David Bennett and Jason Chreck. As with any successful event the sponsors and the behind the scenes personnel play a major part in the success. The 2015 CCL Labels Mudgee Wine Show is no different, without the stewards preparing the record number of exhibits, delivering them to the judges and washing and polishing the Reidel glasses, the show would not go on. Also the sponsors who provide the support in supplying trophies and assisting with the costs of presenting the 2015 CCL Labels Mudgee Wine Show without them a wine show would be a dull and clinical event.

I would like to acknowledge the sponsors: CCL Labels, Robert Oatley Vineyards, The Winning Post Inn, Hahn Corporation, Plasdene Glass Pak, Landmark, Orora/Stelvin, Robert Stein Winery & Vineyard, Global Packaging, Bunnamagoo Wines, Define Wine Marketing & Communications & First National Real Estate. Thank you to all the hard working stewards who volunteered their time again at this years show. Once again catering during judging was provided by Shiralee Archer and the trophy dinner was organised by Bettina James. Regards Peter Wormald Chief Steward

JUDGES SAMANTHA CONNEW - CHIEF JUDGE amantha Connew was the Winemaker/Manager of the boutique Hunter Valley winery, Tower Estate, after working in the McLaren Vale for ten years as the Senior Winemaker at Wirra Wirra Vineyards.

SIMON CURKOVIC In 2008, Simon attended the Len Evans Tutorial and aced the DRC bracket at the end of the week. He has also been an associate judge at the Sydney Royal and and judge at Hunter Valley wine shows. Making my own wines I simply want to produce wines of purity, reflecting their origin with incredible attention to detail. As Sommelier at Marque, Simon has free reign to re- invent the wine program and match wine to some of the most inventive and progressive menus. He won the coveted Australian Gourmet Traveller ‘2008 Australia Sommelier of the Year’ as well as wine list of year at Restaurant and Catering NSW.
