      Tastings of world-best wines from the Sydney International Wine Competition, 9 February 2019

      A stellar line-up of Australian, New Zealand and international trophy and medal winners from the Sydney International Wine Competition will be available for tasting over two sessions on Saturday 9 February 2019 at the Novotel Sydney Central.
      Now in its 39th year, the Sydney International Wine Competition is unique amongst wine shows in that finalists are judged alongside food, making the wines particularly relevant to consumers.
      The exhibition – held in late-morning and afternoon sessions – will feature a total of 241 wines that were awarded trophies or Top 100, Blue Gold and Gold medals, with premier wines from eight countries (Australia, New Zealand, Portugal, France, Argentina, Italy, Georgia and the United States) available for tasting.
      You will be able to taste Australia’s best Chardonnay, Semillon, Riesling, Shiraz and Cabernet wines along with champion Kiwi Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Gris/Grigio and Pinot Noir wines, premium French sparkling wines and some fascinating varieties from other international producers.
      There is also increased focus on ‘alternative’ varieties in both entries and awards. This year a record of over fifty different grape varieties were entered. Successes were achieved with other white varieties such as Roussanne, Gruner Veltliner, Fiano and Vermentino. Similarly, relatively unheard of (in Australia) red varieties Saperavi and Castelao were award winners. Grenache showed beautifully in the light and medium bodied classes.
      Major successes this year were wines from countries as diverse as Portugal and Georgia. The Badagoni - Alaverdi Tradition 2015 (Saperavi) from Georgia was awarded The Ted Radke Perpetual Trophy for Best Table Wine made from a Lesser Recognised Grape Variety. The Casa Santos Lima winery from Portugal was particularly successful with eight awards from a range of robust red varieties.
      Entry to the tastings are $44 for the late morning session and $55 for the afternoon session.
