Best Italian Red Wine Variety Trophy

Vineyard 28 is awarded the Best Italian Red Wine Variety Trophy at the

2018 Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show.

The 2018 Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show is held during the first week of November each year in Mildura, Victoria. The 2018 Show saw 805 entries received from 207 exhibitors, from 62 wine regions across Australia, and encompassed 101 unique grape varieties. The show is more than a forum for wines that fall outside the mainstream. It encourages cutting-edge judging procedures and provides a host of social and educational events that promote the sharing of knowledge and ideas of the lesser known grapes.

Vineyard 28 is very please to announce that they were awarded the

Best Italian Red Wine Variety Trophy, sponsored by CHR Hansen,

for the 2018 Dolcetto.

This is the first vintage of this wine for Vineyard 28. Dolcetto is a black Italian grape variety, known for its low levels of acidity and tendency to be ready for an early harvest. This fruit is grown at the Wildwater Vineyard site in the hills behind Harvey. Full of flavours and vibrant with red berry fruit, sarsparilla, hints of rosewater, grainy herbs, cedar and spices, a wine that is drinking well whilst young and fresh.

Winemaker, Mark Cumbers was ‘over the moon‘ when he received the call to advise he’d received a Trophy for the Dolcetto. Thank you to our colleague Meg Kopke who was attending the Awards Long Lunch this year, and accepted the trophy on our behalf.  Receiving this Trophy is great recognition for being one of the Geographe Wine Region’s pioneers of the lesser known grape varieties.

The Geographe Wine Region

The Geographe Wine Region is located just 2 hours south of Perth, and is fast earning a reputation as one of Western Australia’s most exciting new wine regions. Spanning from Harvey in the North to Busselton in the South and out to Donnybrook in the East, the region hugs the Geographe Bay with the cooling afternoon sea breezes being a hallmark of a long stable growing season. Whilst Geographe is one of Australia’s most geographically diverse regions, a common theme resonates across the region of smaller vineyards and wineries owned and operated by the families you meet at the cellar doors, Wine Shows and Exhibitions. The people behind the wine labels of Geographe are passionate and proud of their Region and what it produces and also where Geographe wines are placed in the Australian and world wine scene.

Vineyard 28 is one of Geographe’s small family owned and operated vineyards. When you visit us at the cellar door, most of the time you will meet us the owners, Mark & Pippa, the people behind the wine. We grow the varieties of wine grapes we are passionate about and enjoy making wine from for you. A love of all things Italian has blossomed into a particular interest in alternative wine varieties for Mark our winemaker and alongside our more traditional range.

Vineyard 28 has something for everyone, the cellar door is brimming with colour and vibrancy, warmth and passion, creativity and wine, quilts and art all combine here.
