JOHN ROZENTALS congratulates Pig in the House winemaker, Anthony D’Onise, on his latest gold-medal shiraz.

Canowindra’s organic winegrower, Pig in the House, has released their new gold-medal winning 2019 Pig in the House Shiraz.

The 2019 Pig in the House Shiraz was awarded a Gold Medal at the recent 2020 Royal Adelaide Wine Show.

“We were really pleased with this result,” commented Pig in the House Winemaker Anthony D’Onise.

“Our Pig in the House Shiraz is a consistent gold-medal wine, with each vintage from the 2016 having been awarded a gold medal.

“We have really focused on our shiraz winemaking over the last few years; highlighting modernity and vibrancy in the style. As the results from Adelaide suggest, the Canowindra region lends itself to this style, with its dry summers and cool nights during the growing season.

“We are truly pleased that the South Australian judges were able to identify our wine amongst 150 wines from all across Australia as being a benchmark aromatic, medium-bodied shiraz.

“We are not overly surprised that the region’s shiraz are performing well. The expertise in the region, along with the vines are maturing. On average our shiraz vines are nearing 30 years old and have been grown organically for half that.

Anthony D’Onise: “We are not overly surprised that the region’s shiraz are performing well.”

“We are more confident as every season passes. The recent results demonstrate this, and we look forward to what the future brings. We find that as the vines evolve, so does the style.”

WINE REVIEWS

Bremerton 2020 Betty & Lou Sauvignon Blanc ($18): The wine’s name is derived from the nicknames that Bremerton’s owners Rebecca and Lucy Willson call each other. It is a refreshing, zesty dry white that makes a delicious aperitif and is quite varietal and dominated by grassy citrus characters.

Bremerton 2020 Racy Rosé ($18): This rosé is blend of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon. The wine is of a style that is well suited to the Australian lifestyle, and has a textural palate and dry finish. Drink on the veranda with many lighter foods, especially salads. It is a very moreish wine.

WINE OF THE WEEK

Pig in the House 2019 Shiraz ($25): This dry red is excellent, starting with a colour dominated by purples and reds. Aromatically, the wine is filled with dark berry fruits of blackberry and ripe cherries, mixed with spices and vanilla. The palate is a well balanced and of medium body. Enjoy with good beef and mushrooms.

NOTE: Potential travellers should check the status of individual events and establishments with regard to the coronavirus outbreak.
