Queensland Wine Week (May 30 -June 7) will kick off on May 30th to join in the celebrations for Aussie Wine Month (May), the country’s biggest annual celebration of Australian wine.
There’s a bit of change going on at Clovely Estate. Former winemaker and CEO Luke Fitzpatrick has moved on and taking his place is Sarah Boyce and Stefano Radici. The change doesn’t stop there with the label and logo getting a little shake up here, and I like it!
Here’s another textural delight from Ray Costanzo. Small white flowers and citrus aromas spill from the glass. There’s a sprinkle of spice with a wash of lemon juice at the death, but that lingering textural thing Ray has perfected with some of his white wines sits pretty well.
In a major first for a Queensland winery, Symphony Hill Wines on the Granite Belt has been awarded a national trophy for its 2014 Gewurztraminer at the 2014 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. Their 2014 Gewurztraminer was awarded Best Single Varietal White Wine.
Golden Grove winemaker Ray Castanzo says the winery’s impressive haul at the 2014 Queensland Wine Awards is due to the hard work the whole team put in year after year. This year on top of picking up three golds, three silvers and eight bronzes at the annual awards, Golden Grove were also named Queensland Winery of the Year.
