Most Successful Winery, McLaren Vale Wine Show 2016, 2017 & 2018
Three Years. 3 McLaren Vale Wine Shows. 16 Trophies. 24 Gold medals. 36 Silver medals. 38 Bronze medals.
A testament to a family committed to producing wines from the land they love!
On Friday October 26th, the results of the 2018 McLaren Vale Wine Show were announced at the annual Bushing Lunch. After exceptional results in the previous 2 years, the Shingleback team were there to celebrate once again.
Winemakers John Davey & Dan Hills were delighted to accept a total of 7 trophies at the luncheon, including, for the 3rd year running, the Most Successful Exhibitor Trophy, generously sponsored once again by St Martin. The trophy is awarded to the exhibitor with the highest average score calculated from their top five entered wines.
John summed up the day by saying: “I am extremely proud of the recognition our wines have achieved again this year, in our world renowned region of McLaren Vale. Winning 7 trophies including Best Shiraz, Best Cabernet Sauvignon and Most Successful Exhibitor (3rd year in a row) at the 2018 McLaren Vale Wine Show is testament to the care taken by and dedication of all involved. Thank you to everyone that contributes to, believes in and slurps down the wines we love to make.”
