Medals all round for Ulladulla’s popular wineries
Taken from Times Newspaper October 2008
Smooth, rich, stunning award-winning wines are right here under our noses.
Wineries from Shoalhaven Coast and the Southern Highlands took part in the Wine Show, with Ulladulla bringing home many bronze medals.
Bawley Vale Estate brought home four bronze medals, with two in the dry white and two in the dry red categories; while Cupitt’s and Fern Gully brought home one each.
Bawley Vale’s 2007 Big Spotty Unwooded Chardonnay, 2007 Gantry Wooded Chardonnay, 2006 Guillotines Chambourcin and 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon – wines named after popular local points of attraction – all claimed bronze medals in their classes.
Owners Ray and Loris McLoughlin are thrilled to be taking out further medals for their wines, having taken out awards at last year’s Kiama Regional Wine Show.
“Already many of the wines we produce have won awards and, as the vines age, will no doubt produce even better wines,” they enthused.
“By way of celebrating our excitement, we will have our award-winning wines at a special price per case at Bawley Vale Estate.”
“The proximity to the coast produces a maritime climate resulting in wines which are soft and rich in flavour,” explained Estate host Maricka Kerekovic.
“Our philosophy is to continue to make the best wine possible and to provide the community with access to holiday programs of music and food in tranquil and picturesque surrounds.
“We have always had a love of wine, and a belief that the property at Bawley Point provides the hours of sunshine, north facing slopes, and the soil essential to producing wonderful grapes, and to make excellent wine!”
