Royal Melbourne Wine Awards 2017
Longview Vineyard racks up the wins in Melbourne over night!!
Longview has taken home an astounding four Trophies and three Top-Gold medals at the 2017 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards. This is understood to be a record for an Adelaide Hills winery at the prestigious show.
Accolades for Wine:
The coveted Douglas Seabrook Trophy for Best Single Vineyard Wine, again for the Riesling.
Trophy for Best Riesling/Top Gold – 2017 Iron Knob Riesling.
Trophy for Best Rosé/Top Gold – 2017 Nebbiolo Rosato.
Top Gold - 2017 Queenie Pinot Grigio.
However, the big news came when the Kym Ludvigsen Trophy for Viticultural Excellence was awarded to Longview Viticulturist, Dino Cotsaris. This Trophy honours the 40 year legacy left by Ludvigsen, whose passion and dedication to viticulture developed and advanced the landscape of Australian vineyards and goes to the team behind the grapes that produce the best single vineyard wines.
Longview Managing Director, an elated Peter Saturno, said: “The Nebbiolo Rosato Trophy was particularly special. Our family is passionate about Nebbiolo and have been striving to perfect different styles of the grape for many years, so this is validation that we’re on the right track.”
Our Riesling block now has an amazing nine Trophies under its belt. Quite remarkable for the Adelaide Hills, where other white varietals overshadow the variety.
