We are delighted to share the news that the 2018 Tristan has won its third Trophy at a wine show this year. Taking out title for the best ‘Red Blend’ at the 2022 Australian and NZ Boutique Wine Awards.
Tristan has a long history of winning medals and trophies, but the 2018 may be the best performing vintage made so far. It will cellar well for approximately 10 years, with some of the cellaring time already done by us for you. While the drought conditions were in their own way challenging, it was certainly a great year for making stunning red wines.
This blend of Tristan is 52% Cabernet Sauvignon, 28% Shiraz and 20% Merlot with each one of th individually bottled varieties winning their own Trophies. It was truly an award-winning vintage all round!
Our much-loved signature blend has always been a popular choice for many restaurants over the years, as it pairs so well with food. Some of our favourite local restaurants at which you can enjoy a glass of Tristan with a spectacular meal include:
Whitney’s at the Remington – NSW Sommelier’s Wine List Awards – 2022 NSW Wine President’s Award
We aren’t the only ones who love the Tristan; here’s what Huon Hooke from the Real Review had to say about it:
‘Deep, bright red with a good purple tinge, the bouquet fresh and lifted with ripe raspberry, cassis, cedar aromas with a lift of crushed leaf. It’s an elegant, medium to full-bodied red with classic cabernet structure of a firm beginning and finish, a touch of fruit sweetness shining at its heart, deliciously elegant and cool-fruited.’
