Following October’s announcement by Decanter awarding Fraser Gallop Estate Parterre Chardonnay 2018 as Best in Show, the Wilyabrup producer has again been recognised for its excellence.
The 2020 Rosé has been named winner of the Chr. Hansen Trophy for best rosé at this year’s Langton's Margaret River Wine Show.
Vigneron Nigel Gallop said of the win “this award demonstrates once again the excellence of Fraser Gallop Estate wines across the range."
Now in its 19th year the Langton's Margaret River Wine Show show this year’s format was changed due to COVID-19 restrictions including an all Western Australian team of judges.
"It's always good to win an award," says winemaker Clive Otto, "but it's particularly good to be recognised by my peers in our own magnificent region's wine show."
Attracting more than 700 wines the show provides an opportunity for local winemakers and grape growers to receive appraisal from a panel of esteemed judges, to promote wine styles that excel in the region and to recognise excellence in the winery and in the vineyard.
This year's judges included Cliff Royle (Chair of Judges) of Flametree Wines, Emma Farrelly, sommelier at State Buildings and Erin Larkin, wine writer.
About the wine:
A Provençale-style rosé, pale salmon pink vibrant with a floral bouquet redolent of red fruits, white peach and redcurrant with flavours of ruby grapefruit. Bone dry, persistent, textural and luxurious. The clean cool mineral acidity finishes crisp and long."
