Fogarty Wine Group Cleans Up At Perth Royal Wine Show

WA wine powerhouse the Fogarty Group (owned by Peter Fogarty) has just shown what dominance looks like at the recent Perth Royal Wine Show, judged last week.


Newly acquired Evans & Tate stole the show with a total of 5 trophies and 3 gold medals.  Trophy for Best Wine of Show went to the 2016 Broadway Chardonnay.  The Broadway chardonnay also received Best West Australian Table Wine,  Best West Australian White Table Wine, Best White Table Wine, Best Chardonnay trophies.

One of the key reasons for our purchase of Evans & Tate was the strength of both the cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay programs. Results such as this, amongst such strong, Australia-wide competition, highlight the quality and pedigree of the Evans & Tate wines. It’s also very pleasing to see even more success for our new Redbrook Reserve range of wines, which are due for release later in 2018.

Both the 2016 Redbrook Reserve Chardonnay and the 2015 Redbrook Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon received gold medals at the show.

Meanwhile, the team at Deep Woods continue their stellar run with trophy for the Best Cabernet Sauvignon awarded to the Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2016.  Julian Langworthy, Chief Winemaker was awarded the James Halliday Winemaker of the Year 2019, to cap off his Jimmy Watson trophy win for the Deep Woods Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon in 2017.  

DID YOU KNOW: Since 2010, cabernet dominant wines from Deep Woods have been awarded in excess of 29 Trophies and 69 Gold Medals at major Australian and International Wine Shows.  This year, it was included in the Langton Classification VII as Excellent.  The first time a Deep Woods wine has featured in the classification.

Millbrook Winery in the Perth Hills was perhaps the surprise packet of the show.  At the 2018 Perth Royal Wine Awards, Millbrook Winery was awarded a total of four trophies and six gold medals, including the highly coveted double header: Most Successful Western Australian Exhibitor, and Best Western Australian Producer Processing Under 300 tonnes.  They also got the Trophy for Best Sauvignon Blanc (given to their 2018 Regional Sauvignon Blanc), and the Wine of Provenance Trophy to the 2017 Limited Release Chardonnay.

Our philosophy at Millbrook has always been to produce modern, stylish, small-batch wines with an uncompromising focus on quality. To be recognised in our home state, at a capital city wine show, as most successful West Australian producer is something we have been working towards for a number of years. I’m incredible proud of the achievement of Damian and the team at Millbrook.

This caps off the most successful wine show roundup for Millbrook to date.

Safe to say, if you're going to back a horse - the winner has Peter Fogarty's name on it.
