BOuiTquE WiNE AWARDS 2012

ceo’s message

The Boutique Wine Awards were born 17 years ago in a small function room at the Renaissance Sydney Hotel, now named The Marriott. The Chairman was Huon Hooke and the judges were Gary Baldwin and Peter Bourne. Huon and Gary haven’t missed a year since and now well-known Master of Wine Toni Paterson and equally respected South Australian Winemaker, Peter Leske have joined the ranks of our permanent senior judges. Huon commands a great deal of respect as the Chairman and each year he rotates some of the nine judges to bring a fair and revolving view to the discussions and to the ultimate results. In previous years the trophy results have ranged from seven to nine and so this year’s bumper crop of 14 is seen as the sign of a quality year. 317 bronze, 92 silver and 43 gold medals is a wonderful result. The Dan Murphy’s Wine of Show was awarded to Mr Riggs, a McLaren Vale company that has entered the awards for many years. We are advised that they have plans to be too big to enter next year – they will go the way of many other boutique companies who out grew these awards and moved on to bigger challenges and bigger trophies! This year the book features a page dedicated to the associate judges. Huon Hooke and I place great importance on our responsibility to nurture and encourage those with judging ambitions. Special acknowledgment must go to the chief stewards Tony Venn and James Audas who with their teams provide seamless service to the judges.

Mr. Cabernet

www.mr r i g g s .c o m.a u To produce the outstanding wines he most likes to make and drink, Ben Riggs seeks out the best vineyards in the best regions. For this award-winning wine, Ben requisitioned the fruit to craft the fabulous deep, dark brooding 2010 Mr. Riggs “Outpost” from the vineyards of Kym Tolley, among the best in the mighty Coonawarra, which in 2010 showed its prowess as the iconic Cabernet Sauvignon region for which it is internationally known. Mr. Riggs “Outpost”. Outstanding Winemaker’s Wine!


BOuiTquE WiNE AWARDS 2012

chairman‘s message

This year’s judging was one of the most pleasurable I can recall, not because of the temperature in the room (chilly) but because of the skill and camaraderie of the judges. I think we had one of the best teams we’ve ever had and the job was done diligently, happily and without difficulty. It was also an eclectic team: five winemakers (six including Winemaking Consultant, Gary Baldwin) and three journalists. The five winemakers hailed from five distinct regions: Margaret River, Coonawarra, Adelaide Hills, Hunter Valley and Perth Hills … a good mixture of backgrounds, skills and specialisations. We also found plenty of trophy wines and although there were the usual ups and downs and some classes were weaker than usual (eg Semillon), some were undoubtedly stronger (eg Sparkling White Wine). It is a while since we’ve had a trophy winner in sparkling wine and this year we not only found a trophy wine but the class was significantly stronger than usual. The Other Red Varieties class also produced a number of highlights while the Red Blends class also had its surprises. Not least was the top gold medal of the class, the trophy winner, which was composed of four different grape varieties. It showed that creative blending achieves surprising results. My thanks to the stewards for doing such a sterling job. Without an efficient team of stewards even the best judges will struggle to get through the workload on time. Well done all!

Sharyn says, “From last year’s show I witnessed the emergence of the sensational new find Blaufrankisch from Hahndorf Hill. My primary work goal is always about connecting people with wine, helping them to discover what they love, whatever the price and wherever it’s from. As an associate judge I was trapped for three days in one room with some of Australia's most interesting wines and wine people. It only confirmed for me that innovation is alive and well in the Australian wine industry.”

Jeff says, “After stewarding at the Boutique Wine Awards in 2011, I found the experience to be extremely beneficial to my winemaking skills. I really decided that becoming an associate wine judge was an important step towards making great wines. The privilege of hearing the comments of the panel chairs and senior judges and to participate in often passionate discussions on wine styles and quality with respected industry icons will have a valued input into my winemaking style and technique.”

l a i r o m e The Mes Trophi BOuiTquE WiNE AWARDS 2012

the memorial troPhies

the max lake memorial chardonnay troPhy

Max Emory Lake, OAM (24 July 1924 – 14 April 2009) was an Australian winemaker and surgeon, who is generally regarded as the “father of the Australian boutique wine industry”. Max was a long term friend to the Association and in particular to CEO Judith Kennedy. He and his wife Joy Lake were both made lifetime members in 2001 in recognition of their support and friendship. In 1963, Lake founded Lake’s Folly, a winery in the Hunter Valley in New South Wales considered to be Australia’s first boutique winery and a major influence on the Australian wine industry. In 1988, The Bulletin magazine called Lake “the man who started the Australian wine boom”. In particular Lake’s Folly Chardonnay and Cabernet have become known worldwide for standards of excellence. In addition to making wine, Lake wrote widely on wine and food. In 1966, he published the landmark book Classic Wines of Australia, followed by several other books about wine and food. Many of these books relate to his third career as a ‘flavourolgist’, his description of his ‘attempt to understand how taste, smell and flavour shaped humanity’. Flavour and pleasure were two guiding principles in his life. In the 2002 Australia Day Honours, Lake was awarded the Order of Australia Medal for service to the establishment of the boutique wine industry in Australia as a winemaker, judge, promoter and author. Max would be very proud of the fact that Lake’s Folly was recently awarded most collected Cabernet in the country and third most collected Australian wine overall.

the chris killeen memorial FortiFied troPhy Chris made several trips to Sydney over the years to receive trophies for the Fortified class in these awards. His Grand Muscat became a legend not only with us but also the Australian consumers. Chris was a gentleman and a friend to the Association. The industry mourned his loss when he died at a young age five years ago. Winemaking was in Chris’ blood, being the sixth generation of Stanton and Killeen Wines, yet it was his passion for fortified wines, particularly vintage port that helped him carve a unique place in not only the winery’s history, but also the industry. Chris championed the more elegant, Portuguese style of producing vintage port using several different grape varieties such as tinta coa, tinta barocca, tinta roriz, touriga as well as durif and shiraz. He was looking to create something much drier and more complex than the traditional sweet style Australia had become used to. Killeen’s life was dedicated to his family, the wine industry and the Rutherglen community, and he was regularly seen on the judging circuit. An unkempt beard would often signal the depths of vintage!

Panel Chairman’s Comment

Very good depth of youthful red-purple colour, lush blackberry cabernet varietal aromas with no sign of leafiness, but definitely varietal. Oak beautifully handled and discreet and tannins velvet smooth and simple, yet providing structure. An outstanding young cabernet with a big future. – Huon Hooke Huon’s Food Match:

Ben Riggs: Winemaker

Pink roast lamb with all the trimmings.

The aim of all Mr Riggs wines is to express the essence of the vineyard and varieties in a style that I enjoy drinking – big, rich and complex, but also with finesse, texture and elegance. Under the Mr Riggs label my plan was to produce icon wines from icon regions. After spending twenty one vintages, a decade and a half of them as Winemaker for caretaker Richard Gregory Trott’s ironstone foundry and workshop known locally as ‘W2’ (nee Wirra Wirra) Vineyards in McLaren Vale and simultaneously as an air miles lifetime reward(less) Flying-Winemaker (Napa Valley, Bordeaux, Greece, Italy and the South of France), I knew it was time, at the turn of the Trillennium to do my own thing…

The rest was, in comparison, simple, involving McLaren Vale, her beloved Shiraz, my mate and mentor Tony Parkinson, his Penny’s Hill Winery and our mates Messrs Beal (Senior and Junior). Add to this combination the original Mr Riggs’ vineyard and help from friends and the only thing left to decide was what to call the kit… I always hoped that someday I would make wine for myself, under my own shingle so to speak. Mate and muse Mr Parkinson convinced me to moniker my first 15 barriques as ‘Mr Riggs’, a title I would prefer to not outgrow.

LEOGATE ESTATE WINES & BROKENBACK VINEYARD Brokenback Vineyard, situated on Broke Road at the heart of Pokolbin in the Hunter Valley, was owned, planted, and operated by Rothbury Estate from the mid 1970’s under the vision of the renowned Len Evans. Over the ensuing years the enduring high quality of the now 40 year old vines has produced premium wines which have been sold under a variety of labels. When Bill and Vicki Widin purchased Brokenback Vineyard early in 2008, the vineyard had been split into two separately-owned portions, both of which became available. In 2008 the reconstituted Brokenback Vineyard had some 50ha (125 acres) under vine, comprising irrigated Chardonnay and Semillon vines on ancient graveled creek-beds, as well as irrigated and dry-land Shiraz vines on the eastern and western sides of the adjacent hill. Since then blocks of Verdelho and Viognier have been added on the flats, and Tempranillo and Merlot on the slopes. To the maximum extent possible, the wines of Leogate Estate are sourced only from grapes grown on Brokenback Vineyard. Construction works are almost completed for the new Leogate Estate Winery and Cellar Door on Brokenback Vineyard. Leogate Estate’s former winery plant in the Tempus Two Building has now been relocated into the new building. The new “U” shaped Cellar Door is well worth a visit. Amid vaulted ceilings and Victorian-era finishes, visitors are treated to spectacular views of the Brokenback Range from a courtyard dominated by a large antique fountain. Visitors can also savour the delights of the Hunter Valley whilst tasting Leogate Estate’s wines. Wine lovers familiar with Brokenback Vineyard will note that the machinery shed, formerly on Broke Road, has been relocated to the rear of the new Winery. The main Broke Road entrance shall be dominated by large iron gates, each featuring a lion rampant – hence the wine name and label: “LEOGATE ESTATE WINES”

AuSTRALiA’S WiNE iNDuSTRY DESiGN COMPETiTiON 2012

ceo’s message

We’re looking good! The more crowded and competitive the wine market becomes the more pressure there is to get the packaging right. In these days of big budget advertising and clever marketing lead by social media, glossy magazine campaigns and supermarket dominance with full-page newspaper advertising, each brand has to give out a quality message or be lost in the hurdy-gurdy of hyper activity. The Association of Australian Boutique Winemakers was founded in 1996 in order to give the boutique producers a better ‘go’. We created an umbrella, an association, a base from which to promote, compare and learn through festivals and competitions. In those days, many labels were designed in-house. Boutique was the new thing and for a while the amateur labels made the grade – but not anymore. The boutique winemakers must compete with the industrial giants and realising that fact, in 2003 we created the Five Nations Wine Challenge incorporating wine companies of all sizes into that competition so that all could stand shoulder to shoulder for recognition. This year we expanded the 14 year old Label Design Awards to include the ‘giants’ for that very reason. The boutique companies have to compete in the bottle shops and the restaurants so we thought let them compete in this, the new and improved version of the old label awards, now rebranded: Australia’s Wine Design Competition 2012. Of the nine classes judged, four boutique companies won trophies and Barossa’s Kalleske, competing in the open dessert wine class, took the trophy away from the giants. Entries came in from all over the country, however all trophy winners are coincidentally based in South Australia. Australia’s Best Wine Bottle was won by Taylors Wines Clare Valley GSM 2010 and designed by the Collective Design Consultants. It was considered a triumph of modern wine packaging. We introduced a totally new element this year by asking professional designers to create a fictitious label and the entries were impressive. The winning designer James David of Virgin Wines Australia will join the judging teams in 2013. Lisa McGuigan is the most highly awarded individual in Australia with regard to wine packaging. As Chair of the Competition she carefully guided the 12 judges, listened to their opinions and urging them to make their own decisions regarding the winners. Lisa will Chair again in 2013.

chairman’s message

What a wonderful competition this year – a collection of entries displaying innovation and commercial awareness. Well-done Australia! This was the first time for this competition that the commercial and boutique brands went head to head. In my opinion, packaging is no easier for a commercial brand than a boutique one. I see it being as equally difficult as it is easy. If you’re a boutique brand you have the opportunity to do smaller runs and hand applied labels so you have the opportunity to use some amazing textures in stocks and unusual sizes. Commercially you have the economy of scale going for you so you can choose a number of different types of embellishments such as debossing and embossing. This year I saw an amazing array of products, eclectic in nature. The competition between the boutique and commercial brands was very strong. Over the years we have seen a lot of innovation in the labels and names used by brands old and new. A few companies are using the new QR reader codes viewed via the new mobile phone app’ and the ‘peel’ mechanism. It is exciting to see them moving with the times and giving the consumers another way to learn, remember and engage with their brands. The judges’ choice of Australia’s Best Wine Bottle was almost unanimous. What isn’t to love about the Taylors Winemakers Project? It’s beautifully designed, flawlessly printed, and a clever extension of the iconic Taylors brand. The screenprinted bottle is particularly impressive as is the little brochure that swings from the wellexecuted screw cap. Quality all the way! A bottle you simply have to pick up and feel and turn and touch and admire. Seriously great work!

What isn’t to love about the Taylors Winemakers Project? it’s beautifully designed, flawlessly printed, and a clever extension of the iconic Taylors brand. The screen-printed bottle is particularly impressive as is the little brochure that swings from the well-executed screw cap. The winery’s insignia seahorses sit quietly in the mix. quality all the way. A bottle you simply have to pick up and feel and turn and touch and admire. Seriously great work!

Very striking packaging. Distinctive and different to the average sparkling bottle. The printing on the glass will handle the pressures of refrigeration and ice buckets efficiently. The design is well executed and the application of the distinctive orange colour is immediately pleasing to the eye. The bright and informative neck tag works well and makes for interesting reading. The producers have executed a clean and contemporary overall look, which confirmed our choice. The bottle says celebrate on!

Judges’ comments

A clean, simple label with great shelfstandout. The judges all acknowledged the clever die cut, which adds a great visual and tactile element to the design. The red ink stamp mark in the centre of the label reminds us that this is a boutique wine and combining the back label with the front is both economical and effective. Beautiful work! Will buyers remember the label – we think so!

A classic bottle design enhanced by proprietary embossed and debossed effects. This bottle will appeal to a broad market. Attractive burnt orange coloured cap with fine detail complements the high build signature finish on the front label. Together with an attractive textile finish on the label material and clear information and tasting notes on the back, the presentation of the product clearly communicates a simple yet high use of materials and design. A touch of that popular orange colour finishes it off nicely.

This bottle has a clever extension of the seahorse theme with a real-life fossil find story on the back label. “These beautiful and elusive creatures have a scientific name: hippocampus, Greek for Crooked horse”. it has an excellent contemporary twist on a traditional approach. The Judges all admired the well-executed typewriter-style font, the die cut effect and the appealing and decorative scalloped edge, with all elements combining effectively. This label sends a strong branding message from a well-established company and it answers the question “Will you recognise the label from across the room?” – we think so!

here we have a traditional, quality look-andfeel with a bottle shape easily recognised in conjunction with the brand. Sparkling wine lovers will be drawn to this bottle. The bottle oozes quality with a perfectly formed foil capsule together with a high-end two-tone bronze effect at the neck. The personalised back label content is a nice touch. The utilisation of a high gloss finish and gold foil effects on the front label continues the old world traditional theme on the package. The label material and construction will be perfectly at home in a bucket of ice. A celebration wine!

The nicely executed cutout of the founder is an eye-catching and interesting, tactile feature of the label. The clever use of ‘EVS’ rather than the full version, Eden Valley Shiraz plus the addition of quality foiling are worthwhile costs to the production. The capsule adds to the rather conservative yet quality image of the overall design. This style of packaging gives the potential to attract new customers to an established brand.

A uniquely shaped low profile bottle that will really stand out on the shelf or on your dining table. Classic colour scheme of silver, grey and red incorporating the use of a foil and a satin finish on the label promotes a quality feel when the bottle is in your hand. The mini cork, silver wrap and white banding is finished beautifully. it has clear and concise information with a family heritage or ‘boutique’ appeal.

An excellent and beautiful extension of a traditional label. This packaging over-delivers with a very beautiful look that should appeal to a broad range of buyers. Perfect packaging for the female target market – as white wine buyers are mainly women. The outstanding use of the colours orange and green with the matching capsule appealed to the judges. This bottle builds on the Cristobel’s flower theme and delivers handsomely. A little beauty!

What isn’t to love about the Taylors Winemakers Project? it’s beautifully designed, flawlessly printed, and a clever extension of the iconic Taylors brand. The screen-printed bottle is particularly impressive as is the little brochure that swings from the well-executed screw cap. The winery’s insignia seahorses sit quietly in the mix. quality all the way. A bottle you simply have to pick up and feel and turn and touch and admire. Seriously great work!

Wow what a bottle! The designer understands the variety in that Burgundy can invite a strong french influence. This packaging delivers over and beyond the invitation and the expensive heavy bottle continues the message of quality. The french cartoon character will never let you forget the bottle – which is the main objective when designing a wine label. The back label is perfect, delivering all the mandatory industry requirements. The neck dress is eye-catching and memorable. The designer finishes the overall bottle neatly and cleverly with a typical french beret over the bar code – nice touch! James David gave this a lot of thought and made the most of the competition’s challenge.
