Sydney IWC trophies awarded

Peter Lehmann Wines’ 2004 ‘Margaret’ Barossa Semillon has been awarded best wine of competition at the 2010 Sydney International Wine Competition.

Peter and Margaret Lehmann received the Joy Lake Memorial Perpetual Championship trophy at the Shangri La Hotel in Sydney where the awards were presented.

Margaret Lehmann says she was thrilled to accept the award – for the second time in three years.

“It really is a great thrill for both Peter and I to be here this afternoon to collect the Joy Lake Memorial Trophy for the Best Wine of Competition, and I know that Andrew (Wigan, PLW Chief Winemaker) and all his winemaking team are overjoyed with the news,” she said.

“Barossa Semillon has always been the variety dear to my heart and having won this award for the second time in three years, yet again proves the point that Barossa Semillon is such a great food wine and worthy of being considered as one of Australia’s great white wine varietals.”

The 2004 ‘Margaret’ Barossa Semillon also won a Blue Gold Medal, was awarded in the top 100, and was awarded two further trophies for best medium bodied dry white table wine and best white table wine of competition.

Blue Gold Medals were also awarded to Peter Lehmann Wines for the 2004 Wigan Eden Valley Riesling and 2008 Layers Red.

Other trophy-winners included Westend Estate Wines for most successful winery or brand of competition (Westend were also awarded nine awards from 20 wines entered), while Grove Estate, Moppity Vineyards and Sticks won red wine trophies.
