SAMU Wines wins Gold at the Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show
Our two beautiful Nero d’Avola blends (Nero d’Avola Merlot and Nero d’Avola Lagrein) both won gold medals at the Australian Alternative Wine Show held on the 7th of November. They were both entered in the same category up against 17 other red wine blends from across Australia, with our wines being the only wines presented from the Riverland.
Our Nero d’Avola Merlot also won the trophy for best blend, which was amazing to see given the calibre of the other wine producers in the show.
For our first release we were amazed and delighted to see them awarded gold medals, and for the Nero Merlot to take away a Trophy was truly special. This was our first wine show and the wines had only been bottled in the the last two weeks and literally just made it to the wine show in time for judging!
For SAMU Wines it really is the dream start to establishing a new wine label and winning the awards is a little bit of validation that we are doing something right in being bold, taking risks and living life!
PS: We would like to thank everyone (Mark, Tania, Mel, Chris, Ash, Tennille) who helped get the wines there on time, AAVWS and especially the judges!
