A bold Barossa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon produced by TeAro Estate Wines has continued its winning streak at another major wine show.
The 2006 TeAro Estate 'Pump Jack' Cabernet Sauvignon claimed the A P John Cooperage Trophy for the Best Dry Red Cabernet Sauvignon at the 2008 Barossa Valley Wine Show.
The latest award follows a string of accolades including Gold at the 2008 Winewise Small Vigneron Awards and 2008 Cowra Wine Show in its class. 'Pump Jack' also achieved 94 points in the 2009 James Halliday Wine Companion.
Managing director, Trevor Fromm said the success of the 'Pump Jack' Cabernet Sauvignon was testament to the hard work and dedication of the family, both past and present.
"The wine is a bold Cabernet which is 100 per cent estate-grown with fruit sourced from our Williamstown Home Block and Sugarloaf vineyards in the southern Barossa Valley," Mr Fromm said.
"Winning this latest award is a huge honour following years of hard work in establishing TeAro Estate Wines. The timing could not be better on the eve of launching our new brand.
"It has certainly struck a chord with our loyal customers and is a true reflection of our commitment to family viticulture, encompassing a blend of modern and traditional techniques.
"This award further re-enforces the notion that the Barossa can make seriously good, varietal Cabernet Sauvignon.”
