Margs Winery Wins Top Honours At The Show

Howling Wolves Wines of Margaret River has won three of the top awards at the National Cool Climate Wine Show held last week.

The news article “Margaret River wine talk” has full details on this story. It says the following: “The winery took out the champion dry red table wine, champion shiraz and champion wine of the show awards with its 2009 Margaret River shiraz at the event held in Bathurst, NSW.”

Howling Wolves Wines’ cellar door and gift shop are situated on the corner of Harmans Mill Road and Bussell Highway, Cowaramup, in the hub of the Margaret River wine region. The winery was founded on the philosophy of producing “varietally correct”, premium wines that offer truly terrific value. Howling Wolves Wines harvest only the superb luscious quality fruit and make every wine approachable and soft.

Mark Haley, head steward at Howling Wolves Wines, said that Margaret River’s brilliant vintage conditions placed it in an excellent position to win awards ahead of Eastern State competitors, who have faced torrid weather conditions during recent years.

“Cool climate regions have faced some tough conditions in recent years, with the vintage classes of 2011 and 2012 quite poor, as reflected in the medals this year,” said Mr Haley, adding, “Technically, the making of the wines, with issues such as green vines, affected a lot of the classes in this year’s show.”

He noted, “It was great to see 2009 and older vintages stacked up pretty good.”

Allan Waters of Howling Wolves Wines said that the award would help promote the winery, which had operated in the area for the last 13 years.

“Last year we won a lot of awards under a different brand, but this year we had a focus on entering our Howling Wolves range,” said Mr Waters, before adding, “It’s good for our winemaker to get kudos for producing a great wine and will help with our marketing.”
