Eddystone Point Pinot Noir Triumphs at 2016 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards
Tasmanian wine continues to receive industry recognition with Eddystone Point taking home the James Halliday Trophy for Best Pinot Noir with its Eddystone Point 2015 Pinot Noir at the 2016 Royal Melbourne Wine Awards.
The James Halliday Trophy recognises the importance of Pinot Noir to the Australian wine landscape and the development of Pinot Noir as a mainstream varietal.
This is the second trophy for Eddystone Point's 2015 Pinot Noir with it already enjoying success at the Royal Perth Wine Show earlier this year.
Richard Evans, Eddystone Point winemaker, says that winning this award is a reflection of the dedication and passion of everyone involved with creating a vintage that they are all incredibly proud of.
"We believe that the success of Eddystone can be credited to our whole team which is why we like to call it the 'people’s wine'.
We set the benchmark for quality with an outstanding 2014 vintage which won two trophies as well as medals in every show it entered last year - including eight Golds. With the Eddystone Point 2015 Pinot Noir already being noticed by wine judges, we hope that it will be just as popular with consumers" said Evans.
