Neal Ibbotson, managing director commented, “We are incredibly fortunate to be having an amazing stretch of trophy wins recently”.
“While we have a dedicated focus on quality from the vineyard to the winemaking and production it is most rewarding to be recognised for this commitment.”
It is the effort of the wider team that are consistently able to produce wines of exceptional quality.
