Gold and Silver at 2017 Geographe Wine Show


Enjoying the win at the 2017 Geographe Wine Show

Kellivale Estate attended the Geographe Wine Show earlier this month. It was a wonderful night, enjoying the company of some terrific wine makers and growers from our local region.

One thing is for sure, there are some seriously good wines being made in the Geographe Region.

This year, Kellivale Estate decided to enter a selection of wines into the wine show for judging. Turns out this was a bloody good idea!!!

Kellivale Estate walked away with a SILVER medal for their 2008 Nebbiolo and a GOLD medal for their 2017 Nebbiolo Rose!

We are so excited about these results.

Here's what the judges had to say:

2008 Nebbiolo: (SILVER)

  • Smells quite lush and forest pippy. Soft easy tannins in here, tannins are fine and slinky. Easy going forest fruited.

  • Floral, plums, sarsaparilla, bright intensity, lovely plush palate, firm puckery tannins match fruit concentration, A smart wine.

2017 Nebbiolo Rose (GOLD)

  • Brilliant very pale salmon, subdued initially, floral, lanolin savoury lift follows with strawberry notes, tea leaf, Fresh palate with talc texture giving way to creamy texture, bright fresh slatey acidity, savoury and wood spice, Hint of red fruits, lovely delicate rose with good length and structure

  • Very pale, almost yellow - it packs a bigger punch than it promised!

  • Delicate colour delicate nose bath salts mineral citrus flowers drier style with good acidity and zesty crunch citrus white peach flavours linger.

So there you have it! Straight from the judges mouths.

We have worked hard to make our winery a success, Receiving acknowledgement in the form of a Gold and Silver medal in our local wine show is a terrific feather in our cap,

We are one proud bunch at the moment.
