POPULAR regional vineyard Maygars Hill has taken out the title of ‘Wine of the Show’ at the annual Dookie Wine Show Awards dinner. The 19th awards dinner event at the picturesque Shepparton Golf Club was a great success and celebration of our flourishing local wine industry.
Maygars Hill 2018 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was crowned the winning drop, the result of a very small parcel of fruit being selected for the reserve label. Intense berries that burst with flavour and vitality were handpicked alongside a percentage of whole bunches added to the ferment.
The ‘Wine of the Show’ encompasses dark fruit varietal characteristics with the signature touch of Maygars mint and was carefully matched with American oak for 14 months.
Established to promote local wines, the annual wine exhibition is held in conjunction with the Dookie A&P Society, Phillips Cellars and Regional Wine Centre, Broker House, Camerons Lawyers, InHospitality, The Graham Family, Go Tafe, The University of Melbourne and The Shepparton Adviser.
