MUDGEE WINE SHOW RESULTS

MUDGEE WINE SHOW Wine Show Committee: Peter Wormald, Robert Black, Jacob Stein, David Bennett, Jason Chreck, Carol Cook, Ian MacRae, Stephanie Ross, Shiralee Archer. As with any successful event the sponsors and the behind the scenes personnel play a major part of the success. The 2016 CCL 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 Riedel glasses, the show would not go on. This year has been a challenge with an increase in the number of entries but handled well with our small enthusiastic team of volunteer stewards. I would like to acknowledge the sponsors who provide the support in supplying trophies and assisting with the cost of presenting the 2016 CCL Mudgee Wine Show. Without them a wine show would be a dull and clinical event. I would like to acknowledge the sponsors: CCL, Robert Oatley Vineyards, The Winning Post Inn, Hahn Corporation,Plasdene Glass Pak, Orora/Stelvin, Robert Oatley Winery & Vineyard, Global Packaging, Bunnamagoo Estate Wines, Define Wine Marketing & Communications, PB Ag & Cudgegong Rural Supplies, Multi-color Corporation & First National Real Estate. We would also like to thank Dougald Saunders for providing his time to be our Master of Ceremonies at the Trophy Dinner. Once again, catering during judging was provided by Shiralee Archer and the Trophy Dinner was organised by Carol Cook. The results database for the Wine Show was compiled by Marc Mearing. Regards Peter Wormald Wine Show Chairman

In 2-3yo wines top awarded wines showed good volume of fruit intensity, well balanced, seamless fruit/toasty age/oak/tannin profiles. 2014 obviously was a v.good vintage. 4 yo wines should be moved on and sold while still fresh.

Judges Notes

2-3yo wines - an unimpressive class with most wines not aging gracefully. Brett an overriding issue. 4 year old wines and older - age doesn’t necessarily equate to quality!! Maturation characters haven’t made the wines more palatable. Need core of fruit.

Judges Notes

Tannin profiles on most wines were too drying. Is this a function of overextraction or spending too long in oak before bottling? Too many wines lacked any vibrancy in colour - 2 & 3 year old wines shouldn’t be brown and prematurely aged!

No.
