Corang Estate has taken out the top gong for Cabernet Sauvignon at both the 2022 NSW Wine Awards and the 2022 Australian Highlands Wine Show today!
Their Hilltops 2021 Cabernet Sauvignon won a Gold Medal in both wine shows, and the wine was also awarded the Trophy for Best Cabernet Sauvignon of Show at each show. The wine also won a gold medal at the Australia & New Zealand Boutique Wine Show on the same day.
This firmly cements Corang Estate’s Cabernet Sauvignon as a top drop, with the wine also winning a gold medal and trophy for best Cabernet Sauvignon of Show at the NSW Small Winemakers Wine Show last month.
Owner of Corang Estate, Michael Bynon said, “It’s a really exciting time for us as a small producer and we’re absolutely thrilled to gain such great recognition in the Australian wine scene.”
The NSW Wine Awards attracts entries from both large and small wineries from throughout the state. There were 79 gold medal winning wines that went into the next stage of the awards; the coveted trophies for best in class, which were presented at a lunch in the International Convention Centre, Sydney today.
Dubbed “Wine with Altitude” The Australian Highlands Wine Show is open to wines from around the country that come from high altitude wine regions over 500 metres. Major areas include the Southern Highlands, Orange, Mudgee, New England, Tumbarumba, Hilltops, Canberra District and Adelaide Hills. The awards ceremony was held this evening in the Southern Highlands.
Corang Estate wines are made in Murrumbateman and husband and wife team, Michael & Jill work with several top growers in the premium cool climate regions of Southern NSW as well as producing wines from their own estate-grown fruit.
