Sam Miranda King Valley is the proud recipient of three gold medals, awarded at the 2007 National Cool Climate Wine Show (NCCWS) held in Bathurst in Mid October. Established by local vignerons in 1999, the NCCWS defines the standards for cool climate wines in Australia with over 700 wines submitted for judging for this year’s show.
Sam Miranda received gold medals for the following wines:
- 2006 Sam Miranda Symphonia Saperavi
- 2006 Sam Miranda Symphonia Las Triadas Tempranillo (top in class)
- 2005 Sam Miranda High Plains Chardonnay
The 2004 Sam Miranda High Plains Durif was awarded a silver medal.
We are one of very few wineries in Australia producing Saperavi, a variety native to Russia. Saperavi’s features include great colour, acidity and structure, and this win is a reward for innovation and experimentation. Sam Miranda’s Las Triadas Tempranillo came top in its class and is an approachable example of this classic Spanish varietal with excellent colour and tannin structure, making it a wine suitable to drink now or develop further with additional cellaring.
Sam Miranda, third generation winemaker and principal of Sam Miranda King Valley said, “We are delighted to have been awarded three gold and a silver medal at this prestigious competition. We have long been experimenting with alternative varieties in our Symphonia vineyard so the recognition by the judges, particularly for the relatively obscure Saperavi, is very exciting.”
