Huon Hooke and all judges were delighted with the high standard of wines and the general comment was that this show contained the highest winemaking standards in the history of the show.

Toni Paterson MW wrote to me as follows: “Quality was at an all time high at this years’ Boutique Wine Show. The gold medal and trophy winning wines were outstanding - testament to the high calibre winemakers and viticulturists of Australia. We discovered many wines with poise, restraint, subtle complexity and harmony. My thanks and appreciations go to the talented and experienced team of judges and stewards. Many congratulations to all of the deserving medalists and trophy winners”. This is high praise indeed from one of Australia’s most experienced wine judges. When I commenced this show 18 years ago the intention was to create an umbrella for the ‘small winemakers’ as they were all named then. My winemaker brother pointed out that the very small producers were unable to enter wine shows due to large quantity requirements for entries. I am delighted to see that the majority of trophy winners this year are very small producers indeed crushing less than 100 ton and in the case of the Cabernet trophy less than 10 ton. Companies of this size won the following trophies: Wine of Show, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Fortified, Sauvignon Blanc, White

Blend, White Wine of Show, Red Wine of Show and Estate Grown and Produced – a triumph for the very small producers, genuinely Boutique! A special mention must go to Western Australia with a total of nine trophies covering Margaret River, further north to Geographe and South to Denmark for the winning Pinot Noir!. Quite a haul for the West! Huon Hooke’s teams of Judges and the supporting Stewards delivered a smooth and successful week which yet again has exposed standards of excellence at the ‘boutique’ end of Australia’s wine industry. On the winners’ pages you will read food matching comments from the Sommeliers following the Judges’ comments – adding ‘flavour’ to the pages. I hope you enjoy the read.

As chairman, I love nothing better at trophy time, than to see a lineup of very strong top-of-class gold-medal wines. Quixotically, the harder it is to judge the trophies for best white and red wine, and best wine of show, the better the show has been. We are happy to be tested!

This year, I think many people will be surprised by the results. It is rare for a sweet or fortified or sparkling wine to give the top trophies a shake, but we saw that happen, with a simply outstanding sparkling wine doing battle with a gorgeous sweet white and a glorious old fortified wine. A delicious off-dry riesling, a complex pinot noir, a refined yet multi-faceted chardonnay, a profound shiraz and a remarkable merlot were among the excellent table wines that rose to the top of their respective categories. There were fewer entries this year, probably because of the difficult 2011 harvest in many eastern regions. The upshot was two judging panels instead of the usual three. All the same, I felt the standard was higher this year. Perhaps winemakers were more selective with their entries, because at the end of the day, we were impressed.

Chardonnay was glorious and an absolute pleasure to judge, and shiraz again provided plenty of highlights. One of the classes that I felt jumped into a higher gear this year was the ‘other red varieties’. We found very good examples of several varieties: malbec was outstanding, followed by tempranillo, and also montepulciano, nebbiolo and grenache. The result was eight silver medals and seven bronze from 34 entries. Alas, no gold medal, but this class bodes well for the future.

Dan Murphy’s Wine of Show Trophy

A ‘ jewel in the crown’

of Gralyn fortified wines from the pioneers (first vintage 1978) of port styles in the Margaret River region. This luscious fortified dessert wine is predominantly muscat; vibrant, amber-brown with a green rim. The bouquet is lifted and layered with spice, butterscotch and fruit cake. Seventeen years maturation in old oak casks has produced richness and rancio complexity. Intense flavours of raisin and toffee sustain a long, clean finish. Aptly labelled, this limited release has the stamp of a true Artizan – hand crafted and unique. These qualities are also reflected in the label with original artwork by Merilyn Hutton.

Sparkling White Wine COMMENT

A wine with great drive and persistence, quite textured and complex mid palate and amazing power with long succulent acidity. Wine judge Sue Bell bellwetherwines.com.au

FOOD MATCH

Lemon curd tart, Italian toasted meringue, fresh blueberries and lemon zest. The flavour profile of this sparkling will compliment the flavours of the tart and the acid will cut through the sugar marrying the two together, and who doesn’t like a glass of bubbles at the end of a meal? Senior Steward Shaun Lau Sommelier blackbyezard.com.au


9 class 3

Semillon comment

A superb example of Semillon at its sweet-spot of development. It has gentle smokiness and nuttiness with inherent brightness and freshness. It was the highlight in what was a very strong class. Panel Chair, Master of Wine Toni Paterson

Food match

Marinated green Spencer Gulf prawns with chilli, garlic, lemon and Thai basil. Grilled with a salad of green papaya baby herbs, sprouts and Vietnamese dressing. Semillon and seafood is a classic match – the acid and lemon citrus palate balances the fresh spicy salad dressing against the slightly toasty notes of this 2009 vintage. Senior Steward, Shaun Lau Sommelier blackbyezard.com.au


10 class 4

Riesling comment

Rose petals and citrus aromas. Fresh and vibrant on the palate with lemon and lime juice. The panel became excited and went for a unanimous gold from the start and agreed that this is a lovely young riesling. Panel Chair, Gary Baldwin winenet.com.au

Food match

I would match this wine with a Thai seafood-based dish, which has a spicy and sour sauce such as Tom Yum Goong. This is a prawn soup with lemongrass, lemon juice, chilli paste and mushrooms. The delicate lemon aromas and crisp acidity of the wine balanced with some sweetness would perfectly highlight this classic dish. Senior Steward, Chris Rose Sommelier glassbrasserie.com.au


11 class 5

Sauvignon Blanc comment

A complex style of barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc with layers of flavours which held our interest. An attempt to do more with this often monotonic varietal. The runner-up gold medal wine (Soho Wine Co from Herne Bay, Auckland New Zealand) is a good example of a more conventional style. Show Chair, Huon Hooke huonhooke.com.au

This wine needs food with delicate and clean flavours. Freshly sliced sashimi of Kingfish, preserved lemon, coriander and ginger will allow the wine to retain its freshness and length on the palate. Senior Steward, Seamus Brandt Sommelier rockpoolbarandgrill.com.au


12 class 6

Chardonnay

Max Lake Memorial Trophy

comment

Chardonnay can produce many dierent styles of wine, depending on where it is grown and how it is vinified and this class represented the breadth on oer. Our top wine had everything in correct proportion. The fruit was pure, focused and energised. The acid enlivened and lengthened the palate and complexity was subtle and purposeful. A wine of great class and refinement. Panel Chair, Master of Wine, Toni Paterson

Pan seared fillet of John Dory, ribbons of zucchini, and a light sauce of capers and parsley. The light delicate white flesh of the Dory matches well with the grapefruit and nectarine delicacy of the Chardonnay. Balanced, composed Margaret River Chardonnay with balanced flavours of John Dory. Chief Steward, Tony Venn Sommelier rockpool.com

This wine would be a great match with cured mackerel, which is a specialty of my local Southern Highlands restaurant (Biota Dining). It is tempered with grape gel and served with dark green discs of compressed Nashi pear and a little ‘pop’ of finger lime. Senior Steward, Jeff Aston Winemaker southernhighlandsfoodand wine.com.au


14 class 10

Merlot

comment

This merlot ticked every box. Lovely varietal fragrances, texture and beautifully balanced tannins. Moderate weight, poise and balance means that “size does not matter!� This wine is remarkably fresh for a wine with several years of age under its belt. Senior Judge, Peter Leskel alinea.com.au

Lovely colour and fruit, a beautifully blended wine with great harmony. Not shy of structure but seamless tannins and finesse. This wine will live for many years and it emerged as the top wine from a very strong class of red blends. Senior Judge and Winemaker Sue Bell, Owner bellwetherwines.com.au

Chris Killeen Memorial Trophy comment

These beautiful wines are a highlight of every wine show and this is no exception. A worthy winner by the slimmest of margins. After considerable discussion it was this wine’s elegance and poise – despite its incredible concentration and power – that won it the trophy. Rancio, age yet freshness, a balance of spirit, sweetness and acidity… just a terrific example of what time and patience can achieve. Senior judge, Peter Leske Winemaker la Linea.com.au

I would match this with a classic Italian dessert such as panforte with hazelnuts, almonds and figs. This wine has so much fruit complexity with nutty flavours and a burnt orange zest that it would also match perfectly with a rich Italian chocolate tart.

Estate Grown and Produced Trophy – the Boutique Vignerons is Bellevue Estate of This year’s winner McLaren Vale. Winemaker

Corey Vandeleur produces only one product, a single vineyard Basket Pressed Shiraz. The winning wine is made on site in their micro winery. It is definitely a family affair with father Peter picking out the stalks for days post harvest, mother Jan keeping everyone fed and wife and daughter Millie keeping them in check.

after the commencement of the Association of Australian A few years Boutique Winemakers and industry acceptance of these awards

we realized that the small producers who ‘go it alone’ should be recognized with a dedicated trophy. Many boutique winemakers have outside help. Some buy in fruit from other growers, some send their juice to production houses and some hire in specialist contractors. Some do none of that and they carry out all of the processes within their own farm yard gate by their owners in many cases mum, dad and the kids. It is these winemakers who we recognize for their efforts.

The shiraz is fermented in two small two ton open fermenters prior to basket pressing. They only produced 600 cases this year. The photograph on the cover of this book is of Corey working the basket press.

Huon Hooke supports this recognition as being a most important function of the Boutique Wine Awards and wrote: “A large number of boutique wines are produced by owners who either don’t have a winery or don’t own vines. Some don’t have either. Our “ best estate grown and produced” trophy recognises those who go the full monty: they grow the grapes, make the wine and can rightly claim to be vignerons - to use the old French expression. This requires great personal commitment and financial investment. We reserve a special respect for these people. This award is the mark of that respect”.

The standard of design this year has jumped considerably with clear evidence that wine companies both ‘Boutique’ and ‘Big’ are using professional designers and the in-house designer is disappearing.

Having Lisa McGuigan on board as the Chair of the judging lifts the expectation of exploring and discovering merit in the designs. The twelve judges split into three teams were conscientious and determined to come to the right decisions. We all met in the sunny Cargo Bar overlooking Sydney’s beautiful Inner Harbour and with wonderful judging conditions the judges followed their brief under the guidance of panel leaders Toni Paterson MW, Nicola Rennie (Vinology.com.au) and Daniel McKeating (Studio Lost & Found – Perth). In an effort to introduce a range of opinions, several new industry judges joined us this year. Professional designer Marty Widholm commented: “I loved the judges in my panel, and team leader Toni Paterson is impressive! We all had the same views and it was amazing that we had practically the same taste in design and marketing (after

deliberation) when judging each bottle and label. It makes me feel that at the end of the day, maybe quality, well thought out solid design is here to stay”. This year we introduced a Packers’ Prize. Before the judging, the Competition coordinator Tania De Ceglie and the workers and I all had a say and a vote which unanimously decided that Project 49 Chardonnay 2012 designed by Maud Design for Victorian boutique wine company Drink Wine was our winner. We didn’t inform the judges of this and we were pleased to see that they agreed by awarding this bottle the Best Boutique White Wine trophy. Well done packers!

If there was a catwalk for wine packaging then the Wine Design Competition would be it!

What an outstanding idea this competition is. It allows the wine industry to see a collection of ideas and applications in a user friendly publication where they can compare their work by simply flipping through this book or quietly studying the collection online. Typography is always an area where the genders of our judges battle it out. Males tend to all agree on similar styles and the females are usually opposite in their preferences - so we had some interesting battles when making the final decisions. Texture this year was a focus with several bottles winning their class on this quality. The Best Wine Bottle was a standout being a combination of a great story, beautiful glass, elegant finishes and outstanding typography applied with innovation. It is style and great texture all the way. A winner from every angle - literally! We all look forward to next year’s competition and have faith that the quality of design will continue to climb and become the fashion house of the industry.

The design was inspired by the story of Bleasdale’s founder, Frank Potts, who had sailed the world by the age of 21. The unique bottle design was modeled on the ships used by the Royal Navy at the time; short, squat, and a low centre of gravity to prevent them from toppling over in rough seas. This story influenced not only the design of the glass, but also the selection of luxury cues; from the rope around the neck of the bottle, to the hardwood stopper cork, screen printed typography, and the design of the sealing label. A fantastic concept that sits perfectly at the helm of the Bleasdale wine portfolio.

The judging team appreciated the simplicity and elegance of this package design and described it as “very up to date”. Compared with the other entries in this class they chose the bespoke bottle design and crown seal, which ties in perfectly with the faux metal label. King Valley branding on the glass shows regional unity and marketing strength.

The gold and bronze foiling and delicate bold ‘49’ is outstanding. We loved the way the tiny gold bird on the design appears to fly from the design towards the back of the bottle encouraging the eye to travel around the single wrap around label. The intricate illustration of the vine is very beautiful, as is the use of the gold and bronze foiling. The label utilises an illustrative approach that—according to the designers—will change every vintage to reflect the unique growing conditions and the flavour notes associated with the wine. The label size is well suited to the size and shape of the bottle.

The image on the label wants you to find out more about the story and the wine. Good shelf appeal. Very evocative name. A true story and an image with integrity. The paper and premium cap illustrate quality. The image of an aged Peter Logan may suggest that the wine should be aged too! It also tells you that making wine in Orange is a tough task. You know that there is a caring person behind this wine. Extremely distinctive and memorable.

A really eye-catching large illustration of a fun and quirky roller skating character which is fresh and young, and a real change from the traditional style usually seen on a fortified. A great colour scheme, used from the red through to the buttery yellow label. A good font choice and good use of raised ink also contribute to the overall quality of the label.

The fabric texture of this label was stunning and made for quite an overall opulent look. The striking pewter colour palette was carried from the label through to the bottleneck. The well known and simple standout logo of Peter Lehmann was a focal point on the label. A great shaped bottle made this a stand out choice.

A clever use of printing straight onto the glass instead of onto a label, allowing you to look straight through the opaque artwork into the bottle. The colour of the glass used helps create the whole light and bright fluid feeling. The theme is carried over to the back of the bottle with the rather cute inclusion of the Taylor’s iconic seahorse swimming through the barcode. Classy on all levels and a perfect ‘mate’ in the Taylors stable.

The judges appreciated the innovative die cut holes, which correspond to the shape and location of each ‘chosen’ block within the Chapel Hill vineyard. We also love the beautiful French Saver Glass bottle, the elegant use of white space, the hand-scribed signatures, and the use of a subtle matt copper foil stamp to match the capsule. These labels have the right balance of luxury cues to convey the price point and positioning of this range. Overall, a fantastic extension of the iconic Chapel Hill brand.

A striking eye-catcher. Contemporary and sophisticated. Fabulous bottle shape with a simple and effective name and label which will easily withstand the pressure of refrigeration and the ice bucket. Very slick neck band, quality paper and font. An overall quality feel. The cable tie, while being a little hard to open, is original and memorable. Bold, fun and distinctive! Not characteristically Australian. A good talking point for the table and could be interpreted as international – maybe from Spain or South America which adds to the appeal.

We found this to be a fun, playful homage to traditional newspaper design. We got quite a chuckle out of the hilarious image of the two (censored) naked chaps running through the field on the front label! Judges comments

A fun, playful design that draws inspiration from the ‘royals’ featured in a standard deck of cards.

The gold and bronze foiling and delicate bold ‘49’ is outstanding. We noted the way the tiny gold bird on the design appears to fly from the design towards the back of the bottle encouraging the eye to travel around the single wrap around label. The intricate illustration of the vine is very beautiful, as is the use of the gold and bronze foiling. The label utilizes an illustrative approach that – according to the designers – will change every vintage to reflect the unique growing conditions and the flavour notes associated with the wine. The label size is well suited to the size and shape of the bottle.

We love the neck label, innovative die cut, and the main label which wraps around the bottle. This label looks outstanding from any angle, and it is sure to stand out strong in such a cluttered marketplace!
