After 3 days of judging by a panel of wine experts from across the globe, the winners of the 2019 Perth Royal Wine Awards have been announced! This year, the Awards showcased the best of WA and Australian wine, with over 1,700 bottles of wine exhibited across 67 different classes.

The Deep Woods Estate stole the show winning seven awards for their exceptional wines, including the coveted Portavin Integrated Wine Services Trophy for Best Wine of Show for their Reserve Shiraz. Deep Woods Estate also took the Royal Agricultural Society of WA (RASWA) Trophy for ‘Exhibitor who has five or more judged entries gaining the highest average points’; the Houghton Wine Co Trophy for Best Australian Wine; The Queen’s Trophy for Best Red Table Wine, among four other trophies.

The Gibbs Corp Trophy for Most Successful Western Australian Exhibitor went to Larry Cherubino Wines (Margaret River, WA), who also took out the Royal Agricultural Society of WA Trophy for ‘Wines of Provenance Best Red or White Verietal for their Cherubino Riesling.

Castle Rock Estate from the Porongurup region down south won the Access Hire Australia Trophy, which gives recognition to smaller growers (under 300 tonnes) in WA.

Winning a Perth Royal Wine Award is a highly prestigious achievement due to the considerable history of the awards and vigorous judging process involved. The Perth Royal Wine Awards were introduced in 1843 – only a few short years after the establishment of the Swan River Colony.

Paul Carter, President of the Royal Agricultural Society of WA, which oversees the Perth Royal Wine Awards, said: “Entering into the Perth Royal Wine Awards is – in my view – a step which, itself, is worthy of applause.

“To put one’s passion and hard work in front of a team of national and international judges, whose job it is to judge quality in intricate detail is a bold and brave decision, no matter how well established that producer might be.

“I think it speaks very highly of the Australian wine industry, that we such commitment by individual wineries to compare their efforts against their peers and gain insight into how they might learn and evolve from that process.”
