Watershed’s Cabernet Success Continues at Royal Hobart Wine Show

Hobart Wine Show - Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon

Watershed’s 2014 Awakening Cabernet Sauvignon has been awarded the 2017 Royal Hobart Wine Show’s Trophy for Best Cabernet Sauvignon and Trophy for Best Red Wine in Show.

This win continues the run of success for the 2014 Awakening Cabernet which has now won 13 gold medals and 8 trophies, including the Perth Royal Wine Show’s Best Cabernet Trophy for the past two years and the 2017 Wine Show of Western Australia’s Trophy for Best Wine of Show.

Watershed’s Founder and Managing Director, Geoff Barrett, said “The success of our cabernet is remarkable and is great recognition for both Watershed and the Margaret River wine region which is celebrating 50 years of winemaking.”

As tribute to the quality of Watershed’s cabernets, wine critic James Halliday awarded 98 points for the multiple trophy-winning 2010 Awakening Cabernet in his 2017 Top 100 Wines and 2018 Australian Wine Companion.

The accumulation of awards for Watershed’s Awakening Cabernets is impressive with 19 trophies, 42 gold medals and finalist for the Jimmy Watson Trophy.
