Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc of the Year

We are very pleased to announce that our 2017 Shades Sauvignon Blanc Semillon was awarded Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc of the Year at the 2018 Melbourne International Wine Competition.

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.

The Melbourne International Wine Competition is the first major international wine competition with trade only judges comprised of buyers from the top retail stores, sommeliers, restaurant owners, hotel beverage directors, distributors and importers.

Further medals won at the competition includes gold for our 2016 Senses Chardonnay and silver for our 2011 Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon.
