Lake Barrington’s Alexandra Wins Gold

Lake Barrington Vineyard’s sparkling wine, Alexandra, has taken home the only Gold Medal in the 2013 International Cool Climate Wine Show’s vintage sparkling category.
The winners of the prestigious competition were announced on Friday, May 31, following the show, which was held on May 28 and 29.
The international show offers participants and sponsors the opportunity to be involved in a world-class event. It showcases the best cool climate wines on the market, attracting high quality winemakers, vineyard owners, sommeliers and wine enthusiasts from around the world.
“As this is Australia’s pre-eminent cool climate wine show, we are delighted that the 2008 Alexandra was the only wine in the vintage sparkling category to be awarded a Gold Medal, while five wines were awarded silver and bronze respectively,” Lake Barrington Vineyard owner Charles Macek said.
“This award can only enhance Tasmania’s reputation for high quality premium wines, especially for sparkling wines.”
The Cool Climate Wine Show was established in 2000 by the Red Hill Agricultural and Horticultural Society to help benchmark cool climate wines. Judges have the power to award as many gold, silver and bronze medals in each category as they deem worthy.
