Triumph For Saracen

Saracen Estate did superbly at the recently held Winestate’s Best of Western Australia Awards 2012, with its Sparkling Maree 2009, Methode Traditionnelle, claiming the “Top of Category” spot. Its Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 also received five out of five stars.

The news article “Win for Saracen” has full details on this story. It says the following: “Wines were judged blind by a panel of expert judges in their varietal category. Both the 2009 Sparkling Maree and the 2009 Reserve Cabernet are now short listed for the Wine of the Year Australia & NZ finals for 2013.”

Every year, renowned Adelaide based magazine “Winestate” makes a list of their top scoring drops from panel tastings taking place throughout the year. These wines are then placed against each other in a trophy-style wine sampling, with the winners labelled the “Winestate Wines of the Year”.

As well as the Best of the West Award 2012, Sparkling Maree 2009 received a Gold Medal at the 2012 Winewise Small Vignerons Awards and a Blue Gold Medal at the 2012 Sydney International Wine Show.
