5 Trophies & Wine of Show at the Perth Royal Wine Awards 2023
For the second year in a row, the 2020 Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay has dominated at the Perth Royal Wine Awards. This year's show has seen the wine awarded a stunning five Trophies for Best Wine of Show, Best Western Australian Wine, Best White Table Wine, Best West Australian White Table Wine and Best Chardonnay. Speaking on the result, Winemaker Feleasha Prendergast said:
"To be singled out as one of the best wines in Australia and to also win back-to-back Trophies is an incredible achievement, and something the whole Evans & Tate team should be proud of. It's an amazing and epic result for Margaret River, especially to win against the Margaret River Cabernets which are amongst the best in the world. "
The Perth Royal Wine Awards is Western Australia’s premium wine competition, overseen by a prestigious team of WA, interstate and international judges. Wine has been judged at the Perth Royal Show since 1843 and the competition is regarded as critical to the success of establishing a national and even international reputation for the WA wine industry. This year’s competition was very competitive; with over 1,500 entries from across the country, the Trophy winners represent only the best of WA and Australia's wines.
At last year's show, the 2020 Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay was also awarded three Trophies for Best White Table Wine of Show, Best Western Australian White Table Wine of Show and Best Chardonnay of Show.
Fogarty Wine Group Chief Winemaker Julian Langworthy said:
"There are few Chardonnay wines that have such an incredible and consistent history of excellence. The 2020 Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay is another in a very long line of highly awarded wines from the Evans & Tate stable. To win five trophies in a single show is almost unheard of, and a huge feat. This win is especially epic following the recent trophy wins for the 2021 Redbrook Estate Chardonnay at the Sydney Royal Wine Show last month."
With an already incredible run of awards at wine shows this year (read about the 2021 Redbrook Estate win at the Sydney Royal Wine Show 2023 here), this result firmly cements Evans & Tate as one of Western Australia’s most consistently awarded wineries.
A huge congratulations to Senior Winemaker Matt Byrne, Winemaker Feleasha Prendergast and the whole Evans & Tate team on these incredible results.
