Sutton Grange Syrah a winner!

The team at Sutton Grange Winery are celebrating after their 2018 Sutton Grange Estate Syrah took out multiple honours at the prestigious 2021 Sydney Royal Wine Show.
The local drop collected the Dr Gilbert Phillips Memorial Perpetual Trophy for Best Red Wine; The Drinks Association Trophy for Best Shiraz; and The Restaurant & Catering Industry Trophy for Best Small Producer with 96 Points and a Gold Medal.
Handmade with passion, flair and uncompromising commitment to quality, the 2018 harvest marks 20 years since the Sidwell family, along with the help of Stuart Anderson and Alec Epis, first planted vines at Sutton Grange.
Renowned for her meticulous approach and respect for the rich eccentricities of Sutton Grange, set amongst the granite-earth foothills of Mount Alexander, Head Wine Maker Melanie Chester said they were absolutely thrilled to receive the recognition for the special vintage.
