A mini judging of Queensland wines at Noosa
A mini judging of Queensland wines was conducted during the recent Noosa International Food & Wine Festival.
A short-list of 18 wines were blind-tasted by a panel of attending wine writers and three were singled out as finalists.
Symphony Hill Reserve Shiraz Viognier 2009, the top wine, was soft and balanced with smooth tannins and a hint of spice.
Witches Falls Prophecy Cabernet Sauvignon 2008 (bright, bold, firm and blackcurrant-like) came second (tasting notes of other wines from Witches Falls’s), and third placed was Sirromet Le Sauvage Chardonnay 2009 (very funky, lots of oak and lees characters – tasting notes).
Chairman Tony Harper was to present a decanter trophy to Symphony Hill. All three wines are from the Granite Belt.
