WINE SHOWS & WHIMWOOD ESTATE 2015 CHARDONNAY

We don't put all our wines into wine shows and if we do we are selective with which shows.  We challenge ourselves and select the more prestiges shows so that we can seriously assess our wine.  Some shows can have 3000+ wines entered and 35+ top leading judges in an event that holds national and international recognition.  The results and judges comments gives us feedback, direction and a great opportunity to benchmark ourselves against our counterparts in the industry.  So when you win an award, it truly is fantastic feeling!  The 2015 Chardonnay has just finished her final run in entering shows and like a good mare, we have 'retired' her to the cellar to sit and wait to be devoured… We thought we might re-capture her achievements...
