The Six Nations Wine Challenge is unlike any other wine show. You can't just enter your wines--instead, the entries are chosen by leading wine writers. Six countries (Australia, New Zealand, Argentina, Chile, South Africa, USA), six leading opinion-makers, six hundred wines in total.
This year, the 2013 Fume Blanc was selected by Huon Hooke as one of the Australian entries in the Sauvignon Blanc class. This in itself was a great accolade and when the results were published recently, we were even more pleased.
As you might expect, the class was won by New Zealand but our Fume put in a great effort and was third in the class, beating many famous names and furthering our belief that we have created a unique and genuine style. It was awarded a double gold which I guess means that it is twice as good as a single gold medal wine!!

In the meantime, enjoy the 2013 Fume Blanc while it lasts.
