We are honoured to be recognised as a 2024 Halliday Wine Companion 5 Red Star Rated Winery. The Halliday team carefully tastes thousands of wines each year, developing Australia's most comprehensive tasting note library in anticipation for their Wine Companion release.
Our passion for winemaking and belief in the unmatched quality and character of our wines and the Pyrenees have once again been recognised by industry experts, and as a result, we're excited to announce that 8 of our wines have featured this year – including 3 wines scoring 95 points and above with fantastic notes by Campbell Mattinson.
"We are so pleased to receive such wonderful results from the James Halliday Wine Companion this year. Our Richardson series of wines continue to receive high results and we are so proud to have maintained the quality level of these wines over a period of years. The 2019 Reds, including the Richardsons, Estate Red and Section 1 are full of fruit and complexity and are looking great. We are also celebrating the great scores for two of our white wines, the Champ Blend Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc."
Carmel Keenan - Winemaker
In addition to the outstanding results our wines have received, we're excited to announce that Blue Pyrenees has also been recognised as a 5 Red Stars Winery for the 10th year in a row! Alongside other iconic Australian brands, we're proud to sit within the top 8% of highly rated wineries across the country. These achievements are a true testament to the dedication and expertise of our incredibly talented winemaking and viticulture team.
"It is testament to the site selected by Remy Martin in the 1950s that we see the results of decades of hard work bearing fruit. Wine making is a long term game, and decisions take years, dedication and many hands to come to fruition. Richardson Reserve Cabernet is delivering year after year. We are in the business of giving pleasure, and these wines tick all the boxes."
Sean Howe - Viticulturist
"It is a fitting recognition for the total team effort of the vineyard, winemaking and production teams. Their commitment to making outstanding Estate wines has been consistent over a long period of time, putting us in the top 8% of all wineries in Australia."
