The Langton’s Margaret River Wine Show attracted 118 exhibitors and 734 entries to its 2019 event, with judging at Ramada Resort Dunsborough and the Wine Show Gala Dinner at Leeuwin Estate.

The Xanadu team, led by Glenn Goodall, are the recipients of four trophies from the awards, including Most Successful Exhibitor and Trophy for White Wine of Show, Best Chardonnay and Best Single Vineyard White for the 2017 Xanadu Reserve Chardonnay.

Three trophies for Wine of Show, Red Wine of Show and Best Cabernet Sauvignon went to the winemaker Heather Fraser’s 2018 Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon, from premium grape growers in the Cowaramup area of the Margaret River Wine Region.

Scoring 96 points and taking out the top prize from over 350 other entries from 25 regions across the country, the 2018 Ringbolt Cabernet Sauvignon was made from a selection of sites around Margaret River, in what winemaker Heather Fraser said was “near perfect Cabernet Sauvignon ripening conditions”.

In its fourth year, the Halliday Australian Cabernet Challenge respects this history whilst celebrating the producers of Cabernet Sauvignon, who are striving to make the best possible wines that reflect a sense of place.
