For the second year in a row we are thrilled to be included in the 2019 Real Reviews latest Awards of Excellence. This may not sound like any great feat until you hear this puts us in their top 12% of wineries in Australia. Overall there are ~2,500 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.
We now have available our 2019 Dogrock Rose and 2019 Degraves Road Single Vineyard Riesling. Stocks of the 2018 Dogrock Tempranillo will be released through wine club next month and any residual stock will be available through cellar door.
2017 Dogrock Shiraz has been selling fast and with a Gold Medal in its only wine show, 92/100 (silver) from Huon Hooke and 94/100 (silver) from Wine Companion it wont last much longer.
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.
August 8 has seen the release of the 2020 Wine companion so we are excited about what this has bought. The 2020 release of James Hallidays Wine Companion had the following; We have maintained our 5 RED STAR rating with the following scores
94/100 – 2017 Degraves Road Shiraz
95/100 – 2018Degraves Road Riesling
94/100 – 2017 Dogrock Shiraz

93/100 – 2017 Dogrock El Rojo (released in September 2019)

These are great scores but unfortunately all of the wines except the Shiraz & El Rojo have sold out. The good news is that the new vintages are now available.
