Clairault has won the Lallemand Trophy (class 11) for the Best Dry White Blend at the 2007 Royal Adelaide Wine Show with their 2007 Clairault Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. The results, which were announced on 12 October 2007, also brought two Silver and five Bronze medals home to Clairault, Margaret River.
“I am extremely pleased with this wine. This blend of Semillon Sauvignon Blanc has now won two Trophies this year alone, along with several other accolades and it is only going to get better,” chief winemaker Will Shields said
“The Clairault vineyard has been practising sustainable and biological farming techniques for over five years now and the results are illustrated within these accolades. Our low intervention and environmentally friendly approach, along with the assistance of ERA (Environmentally Responsible Agriculture) Farming consultants has dramatically improved the soil structure of the vineyards and consequently improved purity in fruit flavour, intensity and quality,” Shields said.
The Royal Adelaide Wine Show is one of the pre-eminent wine shows in Australia. The competition entries in the Royal Adelaide Wine Show are judged by a team of high profile Australian wine industry representatives. The 2007 Royal Adelaide Wine Show received 2590 entries from 379 Australian wineries.
