Corang Estate has picked up a gold medal for their 2017 Hilltops Shiraz at the Canberra & Region Wine Show!
The wine, which was awarded a gold medal and trophy for Best Shiraz of Show at last year’s Australian Highlands Wine show, has again proven that it really is a top drop. It was up against a strong field of excellent wines and well-established wineries in the region.
“The wine has been in bottle for around 14 months and it continues to evolve and improve all the time. We’re delighted with it, and to win a gold medal at the most important wine show in our region is very exciting!” said Michael Bynon, Owner of Corang Estate.
Corang Estate was also awarded two other medals at the Canberra show; a silver medal for their 2018 Tempranillo and a bronze medal for their soon-to-be-released 2019 Sauvignon Blanc. The Tempranillo has been performing particularly well at other wine shows as well, securing a total of five silver medals and a bronze so far, with a few show results still to be announced.
Corang Estate has been in business since January 2018 and their wines are available at a number of farmers’ markets within a radius of their home base in Nerriga. They are also stocked in several of the region’s bottle shops, restaurants and hotels. In coming months, owners, Jill and Michael Bynon are also planning to open a cellar door at their vineyard, located on Oallen Road in Nerriga.
Focused on producing the varieties that grow well in the region, Corang Estate’s vineyard is planted with Shiraz and Tempranillo vines, from which they are likely to harvest a crop in 2020. Their regional range is made from small parcels of top-quality fruit from growers across the region, and includes Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Tempranillo and Shiraz. They will also be adding a top quality sparkling wine to the range in mid October.
