hamelin bay sauvignon blanc 2009 wins trophy for best sav blanc adelaide wine show

Hamelin Bay Sauvignon Blanc 2009 has won the Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc at this years Royal Adelaide Wine Show, Australia’s most prestigious Wine Show.

Hamelin Bay Wines was the only Western Australian winery to receive a trophy at the 2009 Royal Adelaide Wine Show. Hamelin Bay Wines has now received a Royal Adelaide Trophy for its Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc a total of five times since 2003.

For Hamelin Bay Wines these awards follow on from winning the Trophy for Best Chardonnay at the Boutique Wine Awards for Hamelin Bay’s Chardonnay 2007 in July 2009 and on October 9th two gold medals at the Qantas WA Wine Show, Mt Barker, for Hamelin Bay’s Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2009 and the new second label “Mainbreak” Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2009.

These awards once again confirm the excellence of the Southern region of Margaret River around Karridale for producing superb quality white wines.  The combination of a cool spring, naturally limiting the cropping level and sunny dry finish saw excellent harvest conditions for Karridale fruit in 2009.  It takes a great winemaking team with a commitment to detail, as well as great fruit, to bring it all together and the awards are due recognition for the excellent work of winemakers Julian Scott and Simon Ding.
