02 Nov Best Sparkling in NSW – 5 times in a row!
So thrilled to receive the Best Sparkling in NSW Trophy at the #NSWWineAwards22 for the Swift 2011 Blanc de Blancs. Swift Sparkling has been awarded the trophy for the last 5 years. This is the first time in the history of the NSW Wine Awards that a producer has achieved this accolade.
Ned Goodwin recently tasted the Swift 2011 Blanc de Blancs and noted “A late-disgorged wine based on the cool ’11 vintage. A whopping decade on lees, with an intriguing dosage (4.75g/L) comprised of barrel-fermented chardonnay and a dollop of brandy spirit. This will age further in bottle. Already toasty, creamy and broad, exuding riffs of orange blossom, quince, raw pistachio, nashi pear and brioche. The finish, long, detailed and vibrant. Thoroughly convincing”
Our winemaker Drew Tuckwell received the award, a great accolade for his expertise in crafting the traditional method Swift sparkling range.
