Earlier this month, Langanook Wines from the Bendigo Wine Region received two prestigious international awards for their locally grown wines at the Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada competition in Canada.
The 2005 Langanook Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded a Gold medal and the 2005 Syrah gained a Silver medal. This Quebec based Wine Show is the largest international wine competition in North America.
The Sélections Mondiales des Vins Canada wine tasting competition was created in Canada in 1983 and today continues to qualify as one of the oldest and most important wine competitions in the world. This year there were 2100 entries from 30 countries.
“It is a thrill to be awarded these prestigious awards for my wine,” said Matt Hunter, Langanook Wines winemaker and owner. “The huge amount of work that goes into making quality wine is certainly recognised by this level of acknowledgement.”
This recent success is the result of more than 20 years development of the vineyard and winemaking at Langanook. Winemaker Matt Hunter is particular in presenting wines of the highest quality.
Langanook Wines is located in the granite hills south of Bendigo in Sutton Grange. Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon were first planted by Matt in 1985. The cellar door is at 91 McKittericks Road, Sutton Grange and is open on weekends and public holidays from 11am to 5pm.
