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.
Our latest Trophy is for our 2018 Dogrock Pyrenees Rose in class 25 at the recent Winewise Small Vignerons Awards. Judged Best Rose from all entries this is very exciting for us as its the first wine show we have pit this wine into. Unfortunately it sold through very quickly but we are currently working on the 2019 so watch this space.
Stocks of the 2017 Dogrock Tempranillo have been depleted so we now waiting on the 2018 to be bottled. The 2018 Degraves Road Riesling has just been awarded a silver medal at the Victorian Wine Show and 92/100 from Huon Hooke but sadly its also almost sold out. Our 2017 Dogrock Shiraz has been released and also collected a Gold Medal in its only wine show and has also received 92/100 (silver) from Huon Hooke. Lots of bling and love for the current crop that’s for sure.
Just released is the amazing 2018 Dogrock Grenache. We can only suggest you get in early on this wine as the volume is only 100 dozen. From a warm year, its a beautifully balanced wine with ample length and finesse. Lots of love for this wine at the recent Grape Escape.
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.
