Tamburlaine Organic Wines are toasting to their recent success, after winning best wine in show at the Organic and Biodynamic Wine Show.
The winery took out 18 of the 19 categories it entered, including top of class in three categories.
Senior Winemaker Aaron Mercer told the Newcastle Weekly the wins consolidate a pivotal year for the business, which follows on from its expansion in the Orange Wine Region via the purchase of a new winery facility at Cudal and the opening of a second cellar door in Millthorpe.
“We are chuffed, we have been chipping away for some years at improving quality and when you get something tangible, like a medal, that shows progression,” Mercer said.
“The wins consolidate our belief that we are still getting it right and creating exceptional drinking experiences for our loyal customers.
“We have remained true to the core of what we do, and we consistently do it well.”
Mercer said he believed the winery’s long-term commitment to contemporary organic practices is central to its success.
“I think sustainability is something we should be talking about more,” he said.
“We need grapes 20 years from now and I think organics is about making sure we have a future, that includes the vines, soil, and setting it all up for future generations.
“We will be forever working on making better quality organic wines that are available to the masses and producing a wine that’s sustainable and represents the region with the added bonus of being organic.”
