As the sun sets on 2021, it’s a good time to reflect and recharge.
Despite its many challenges, from continual closures in lockdown to industry wide staff shortages and everything in between, it’s also been a year of many achievements to lift our spirits.A truly amazing effort made by our winemaking and viticulture teams landed us with three trophies for our 2019 864 Funder & Diamond Drive Block Chardonnay, including ‘Best Victorian Chardonnay’ at the prestigious Royal Melbourne Wine Show, ‘Champion of Show’ at the Yarra Valley Wine Show and ‘Top Australian Chardonnay’ in the Halliday Wine Companion Awards.Not to mention the 20 wines that scored over 93 points in the Halliday Wine Companion, and countless medals at the aforementioned wine shows across all styles, ranges and price points. It’s an impressive follow up to our 2020 results and speaks to the consistent quality of wine produced by the team year after year.
