Peregrine Ridge's Sue Kerrison accepts one of the winery's awards for the 2012 Daylesford Wine Show on Friday.
Heathcote’s Peregrine Ridge winery has won multiple awards from the 2012 Daylesford Wine Show.
The 11th annual show attracted 226 wines entered from the Macedon Ranges and adjoining regions, including Sunbury, Kilmore, Heathcote, Bendigo and Ballarat.
The results of the show were announced at a dinner at The Lake House in Daylesford on Friday.
The judging panel, headed by experienced judge and winemaker Robert Paul, determined that 83 wines of the 226 entered were of gold, silver or bronze medal standard.
Peregrine Ridge won the trophy for Best Sparkling Wine with its Non-Vintage Sparkling Shiraz.
The sparkling wine class included both red and white sparkling wines and in what was a real coup, a sparkling red took out the trophy.
The wine also picked up a gold medal at the 2012 Concours des Vins du Victoria on Thursday.
‘‘The style is inspired by the great sparkling burgundies of Australia,’’ Peregrine Ridge winemaker Sue Kerrison said.
‘‘It’s a great drink, especially as we lead into the festive season.
‘‘The wine is a perfect accompaniment to mince pies, fruit cake and shortbread.’’
Peregrine Ridge will have the wine available for tasting at local farmers’ markets at Ballan, Talbot, Kyneton and Heathcote in the lead up to Christmas.
Peregrine Ridge is fast becoming a local identity for sparkling shiraz, having won the trophy for the best sparkling red at the Australian Sparkling Wine Show last year with its 2005 Winemaker’s Reserve Sparkling Shiraz Late Disgorge.
The NV also finished third at the 2012 Australian Sparkling Wine Show.
