Goldie Wines has received an excellent five star review for its latest release – the 2010 Goldie Cabernet Merlot Franc.
Notable wine reviewer and blogger Raymond Chan reviewed a selection of the Goldie and Island range of wines available from the vineyard, giving particular praise to the 2010 Goldie Cabernet Merlot Franc calling it “elegantly proportioned and very fine-featured with bright, ripe and luscious blackcurrant and blackberry flavours, along with red fruit nuances.”
Goldie Wines General Manager Ken Christie is pleased to have received such favourable praise for the vineyard’s flagship wine. “We’re very happy with Raymond’s reviews and especially his five star gold award for our cab merlot franc. He noted that it was as if the vineyard, now under University ownership, hasn’t missed a beat in maintaining the standards set by the Kim and Jeanette Goldwater. This wine should prove popular with those familiar with the quality of the Goldwater Cabernet Merlots.”
The vineyard’s other premium wines under the “Goldie” label also scored well with the 2010 Goldie Syrah and the 2011 Goldie Chardonnay receiving silver awards.
Two of the “Island” range of wines received praise with the Island Red receiving a silver award and the Island Rosé receiving bronze.
