Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc – Sydney Royal Wine Show

Watershed are proud to announce that our 2016 Senses Sauvignon Blanc has been awarded the The McCarthy Perpetual Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc at the 2018 Sydney Royal Wine Show.

This was the only gold medal winning wine in its class with the judges commenting that the wine “showed a beautiful balance of freshness and complexity”. Callan Boys from the Sydney Morning Herald describes it as “a refreshing shift to multi-dimensional sauvignon blanc showing layers of complexity woven through concentrated varietal fruit. Thoughtful winemaking adding depth and intrigue to this variety.”

This award continues the great success of the wine with previous vintages awarded trophies from the Wine Show of Western Australia, Hobart International Wine Show and the Margaret River Wine Show.

Congratulations to all of our vineyard and winery teams for another outstanding result.
