Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007 wins major award at Sydney International Wine Competition

Amisfield Wine Company’s Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007 has made its mark at its first showing, winning a Top 100 Blue Gold award, identifying it among the leading wines entered at the prestigious Sydney International Wine Competition 2009.

General Manager Fleur Caulton is delighted with the endorsement for Amisfield’s latest pinot noir vintage.

“The Sydney International Wine Show judged our wine alongside 2100 entries and to receive a Top 100 Blue Gold Award, which indicates it is in the top five per cent of the wines from the 13 style categories at the 2009 competition, will provide an excellent profile for the Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007.”

“It is always exciting to receive recommendations from the highly discerning international judges, who are involved in the Sydney International Wine Competition, and it is significant for Amisfield to be able to measure itself alongside some of the best wines in the world.”

The Amisfield Pinot Noir 2004 and 2005 have previously won Blue Gold Medals and Top 100 awards at the Sydney International Wine Competition while the 2003 and 2006 Amisfield Pinot Noir vintages have won Blue Gold medals.

“We have a good record at this competition and it is noteworthy for us to be able to display the competition’s Top 100 Blue Gold trademark on the Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007 underlining the recognition it has gained.”

The Sydney International Wine Competition will announce Trophy winners at its awards banquet on February 28 and tastings of the Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007, along with the other Blue Gold Award winners will be available to banquet guests.

The Amisfield Pinot Noir 2007 will be publicly released early in 2009.
