Margaret River winemakers took home 3 out of 5 Young Gun of Wine 2019 awards.
The PEOPLE’S CHOICE, as decided by the public at tasting events in Melbourne and Sydney, was given to Liv Maiorana and Mijan Patterson of South by South West. “Winning People’s Choice for us is epic, making wine to share is what the South West is all about, but ultimately we make it for people who are going to drink it and it’s so humbling that they enjoy it,” said Liv.
The WINEMAKER’S CHOICE, decided by the Final 12 winemakers, was taken out by Remi Guise of tripe.Iscariot. Remi was naturally honoured to get the nod form his peers: “Winemakers Choice is one of those furiously coveted awards, it is the respect of your peers, all of whom are as critical and exacting as you are. To have the caliber of winemakers, who all make wines of such esteem and sense of place, elect me as a favourite is truly amazing and humbling.”
The BEST NEW ACT went to winemaking duo, Rhys Parker and Paul Hoffman from Vallée du Venom, who make wines in the Margaret River and Swan Valley. Rhys Parker enthused on their win, “Hoffy and I are very humbled to be amongst so many talented winemakers and bloody good wines! We’re stoked!”
