“Best of the Best” Award for Watershed


“Best of the Best” Wine Award for Watershed


Margaret River, Western Australia – 5th April, 2017 – Watershed are delighted to announce that our 2016 Shades Sauvignon Blanc Semillon has been awarded the Medallion for Best Sauvignon Blanc or Blend at this year’s Winewise Championship in Canberra.

The Winewise Championship is recognised within the industry as a “best of the best” event accepting, by invitation only, Gold Medal winning wines from major Australian wine shows. Watershed‘s invitation follows their Gold Medal success at the 2016 Margaret River Wine Show.

Head Winemaker, Severine Logan, stated “Watershed is a close knit team and this award reflects our commitment to quality from the vineyard all the way to the bottle”.

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is one of the classic Margaret River wine styles. Watershed’s Shades SBS shows delicious tropical fruit and citrus aromas which are complemented by the grassy nuances of Semillon. The wine is fresh and vibrant showing passion fruit characters with a crisp lingering finish.< br/> The only other Western Australian winner of the 21 classes in the Winewise Championship was fellow Margaret River producer Devil’s Lair for their 2013 Devil’s Lair Margaret River Chardonnay in the Best Pre 2015 Chardonnay class.
