“The results are in and apparently local winemakers are a “pretty canny lot”. This is the opinion of Chairman of the Judges for the 2016 Clear Image Hunter Valley Wine Show, PJ Charteris.
“On the first morning tasting the 2016 Semillons there were some real highlights from what was a challenging vintage. To look at wines with purity and clarity varietal characteristics was very, very positive for the region,” he said. “So that was neat to see straight off the bat.”
In total 59 gold, 108 silver and 208 bronze medals were awarded as well as 24 trophies as part of the celebrations luncheon that took place at the Crowne Plaza Hunter Valley on Friday, August 19.”
