Ratings

 

More medals and ratings are awarded when wines are young. Very seldom are they judged with bottle maturation .

 

Not so with us, we recently asked Dr Ray Healey, one of Australia’s foremost and respected wine Judges for his thoughts. Ray has been Chairman of Judges in Hobart, Tasmania and judged in Hong Kong, Sydney and Melbourne, including for the famous Jimmy Watson Trophy. Serving temperature was the optimal16C. Glassware was from Riedal.
