We have just seen that we have been ranked 168 by the Real Review for their latest Awards of Excellence. This may not sound like any great feat until you hear they taste 10,000 wines every year and overall there are 2,400 wineries in Australia. Not all of them may send their wines to Huon and team but of those that do we are incredibly proud to even make the list. More to follow soon.
Very happy with our latest win with best small cellar door from Gourmet Traveller for the Pyrenees/Ballarat region. This is the second time we have won this award with 2016 also a winning year.
Vintage 2018 has just ended with some amazingly good wines made. Shiraz and Grenache are especially strong and we also welcome our first crop of estate grown Cabernet Sauvignon and Graciano. Exciting times for us with the addition of these 2 red wines.
Stocks of our Trophy winning Grenache continue to dwindle so perhaps order soon if you wish to secure a little more of this great wine. The 2017 will follow on and is a beautifully spicey wine from a cool year so no need to fret if you miss out.
Very happy to announce that Grampians Helicopters will soon be taking visitors on the ride of their life with a visit to Dogrock. Arriving by air, individual tastings with us and an incredible scenic flight home are what awaits the lucky who dare. More info on Justin and Justine on the link below.
We have just released the 2017 Dogrock Tempranillo and the 2018 Degraves Road Riesling Both wines are true to their style and will definitely please those who have previously enjoyed recent vintages.
Other recent accolades include a 94/100 for our trophy winning 2016 Dogrock Grenache (has also won 2 silver medals).
August saw the release of James Hallidays Wine Companion and the 2018 edition has been excellent for the 2 labels from Dog Rock. We have maintained our 5 RED STAR rating with the following scores
96/100 – 2015 Degraves Road Shiraz
95/100 – 2016 Degraves Road Riesling
94/100 – 2015 Dogrock Shiraz
94/100 – 2015 Dogrock Grenache
93/100 – 2015 Dogrock Tempranillo
92/100 – 2015 Dogrock Cabernet Sauvignon
These are great scores but unfortunately all of the wines except the Cabernet Sauvignon have sold out. The good news is that the next vintages are now available.
