NSW Small Winemakers | Flyfaire takes the Bronze

The 24th Annual NSW Small Winemakers Wineshow results are out and Flyfaire has again had success with our new Flyfaire 2014 "Jane in the Mist" Riesling which received a Bronze in the category "Blended Fortified Wine - Dry to Sweet" with the great score of 48.5 points. The class comments noted that it was good to see an interest still exists in fortified wine. Our winemaker created this new style due to customer demand for a sweeter style of wine and it's great to see it has been instantly recognised with this award.

This is our second medal at the NSW Small Winemakers, with last year's awards resulting in a Bronze medal for our Flyfaire 2013 Merlot. That vintage sold out earlier this year and we hope to have the same success with Jane in the Mist.

We missed out on medals with our other wine entries, including:

  • The Flyfaire 2014 Riesling in the category "Class 1 Dry White Table Wine - Riesling any Vintage" with a score of 44.5. We were just 2 points shy of receiving an award for our Flyfaire 2014 Riesling with the class comments noting that the wines had strong Riesling characteristics; and
  • The Flyfaire 2014 Merlot in the category "Class 18 Dry Red Table Wine, Merlot, any Vintage" with a score of 35.

The New South Wales Small Winemakers Show for 2014 held in Forbes, NSW. The competition is open to all vignerons provided they produce wine from no more than 500 tonnes of grapes per annum, not owned or part owned by a larger wine producer, and wines are made from grapes, 85% of which have been grown anywhere within NSW and the ACT.
