Five in a row for McGuigan

McGuigan Wines has picked up the Semillon Trophy for the fifth year in a row at the prestigious 2015 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC).

McGuigan’s 2006 Bin 9000 Semillon picked up the top gong for this year’s Semillon category, while McGuigan Wines was shortlisted for an IWSC Australian Wine Producer of the Year for the sixth year in a row.

Chief winemaker Neil McGuigan described the win as a spectacular achievement for the winery and for the Hunter Valley.

“Five years and five IWSC Semillon trophies in a row … what a truly magnificent achievement, and something that has never been done before,” he said. “These successive wins showcase fantastic consistency and depth in our aged semillons, and great potential for newer vintages that will no doubt age with the same style and grace as the trophy winners.

“The Hunter Valley is our spiritual home, and semillon is the iconic white variety of that region. To take people on the semillon journey, we need to be innovative with our winemaking techniques and, by doing this, they will be on the road to discovering a variety that has flavour, lightness, finesse, longevity, and that is a marvellous match for so many foods.”

In addition to the Semillon Trophy, McGuigan Wines also received four Gold Outstanding awards, including the 2004 McGuigan Shortlist Riesling, and the 2003, 2004 and 2006 Bin 9000 Semillon.
