MUDGEE WINE SHOW RESULTS


MUDGEE WINE SHOW Wine Show Committee: Robert Black (chairman), Carol Cook, David Bennett, Jess & Jason Chreck and Marc Mearing. The successful staging of the 2013 CCL Label Mudgee Wine Show was due to the generosity of our loyal sponsors and trophy donors. Two new sponsors, The Riedel/ Spiegelau Group and Global Packaging and one new trophy donor, Bunnamagoo Estate came on board this year. The sponsors are: CCL Labels (Clear Image), Robert Oatley Vineyards, Oriental Hotel, The Winning Post Inn, Lawrence Bennett Portelli, Hamilton Island, Hahn Corporation, Plasdene Glass Pak, Landmark, Amcor/Stelvin & Classic Oak. As always it is not possible to stage such an event without the tireless work of our stewards in washing and polishing the Riedel glasses and pouring and presenting the exhibits for the judges. The wine stewards participating in the 2013 CCL Label Mudgee Wine Show were: John Bentley, Duncan Higgs, Shiralee Archer, Jackie Conroy, Bernard & Gai Blackley, Jess & Jason Chreck, Bruce & Linda Wilson, Ted Cox, Ray Whitfield, Christine Corner, Liam Heslop, Debbie McKendry, Ro Francis, Thomas Verghese, Brody Crawford, Lynette Bennett, Bec Bruton, Mike Sweeney, Julie Heslop, Courtney Ford & Wendy Loughnan. A special thank you to Marc Mearing for the implementation of the on-line entries and the database interface developed last year. Thank you to Carol Cook for her assistance across the show once again. Once again catering during judging was provided by Shiralee Archer and the Trophy Dinner was organised by Promotions Sub-Committee Jess & Jason Chreck, Bec Bruton & Cassandra Wass. Regards David Bennett Head Steward

Judge - Duncan Lloyd Duncan Lloyd, recently appointed assistant winemaker at Logan, is a young man of distinctive winemaking pedigree. Hailing from Mclaren Vale, he grew up on a vineyard and was educated on the virtues of fine food and wine from a tender age. Duncan graduated from Adelaide University in 2008 with a Bachelor of Oenology. Whilst undertaking his degree he juggled work in the family vineyard with vintages at Moss Wood in Margaret River. As well as experiencing a vintage in the west at Moss Wood, Duncan completed vintages at Tintara in Mclaren Vale and Josef Chromy in Tasmania in between his European adventures. His passion for the European approach to winemaking ignited, Duncan spent almost three years abroad, his international experience culminating in vintage with the Brunier family in Chateauneuf du Pape. Based at Vieux Telegraphe, he also gained experience at La Roquette and Les Pallieres in Gigondas, and travelled extensively through Rhone, Burgundy and Champagne. Duncan continues his avid interest in karate and lives this life through the “Karate Kid” movies.
