Yealands Wine Group (Yealands) have been named as the Most Successful Winery of Competition at the 2019 Sydney International Wine Competition (SIWC) for the third year after winning in 2016, 2018 and now 2019.  This has been another very successful year for Yealands receiving a total of nine awards including two Trophies, four Top 100/Blue Gold medals, two Blue Gold medals and three Gold medals.
Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc 2018 was awarded a trophy for Best Value Dry White Table Wine of the Competition as well as a Top100/Blue Gold Medal.  Peter Yealands Reserve Sauvignon Blanc, Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Grüner Veltliner and Yealands Estate Single Vineyard P.G.R. also received Top100/Blue Gold medals for their 2018 vintages.
Now in its 39th year, the SIWC is a unique and globally recognised competition which is independently run and funded, only accepting a maximum of 2,000 wine entries each year.  The individual wine is then blind tasted by a panel of wine experts in a three-phase judging regime. During the final phase, each wine is then paired alongside a specific dish of a similar palate weight before determining and awarding the final results.  Dr Ken Dobler, an eleventh term panellist at the SIWC, commented that the Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc had “Interesting dried herb and slate aromas complexed with restrained tropical fruits on the nose. The palate is beautifully savoury with a minerality and enough tropical characters to give interest.”
“I was actually jumping for joy a little bit when I heard the results!”  Says Natalie Christensen, Senior Winemaker for Yealands.  “The whole winemaking team, everyone who works at Yealands really, puts so much love into creating our wines, so we’re genuinely overjoyed when we receive awards like Most Successful Winery of Competition, and amazed when it’s for the third time!  Winning a Trophy for Peter Yealands Sauvignon Blanc is also incredibly special because it’s probably the wine we’re best known for, but the fact that we received top medals for such a wide variety of our wines also shows we’re achieving fantastic quality right across the board.”
