Jeremy is toast of London

by John Lewis from the Newcastle Herald 1st June 2011

The Amelia Park 2009 Margaret River Cabernet Merlot, which I reviewed on August 8 last year, has won the trophy for the best Australian red Bordeaux varietal over £10 at the prestigious Decanter magazine World Wine Awards in London.

Amelia Park is a venture involving young gun winemaker Jeremy Gordon, 39, his wife Daniela, 38, and Margaret River businessman Peter Walsh.

The Decanter success follows the award of two gold medals at the 2011 Sydney Wine Show earlier this year.

The Amelia Park 2009 Margaret River Cabernet Merlot won gold in the 2009 vintage cabernet sauvignon or cabernet sauvignon blends class and the Amelia Park 2009 Margaret River Shiraz won a gold medal in the 2009 vintage shiraz or shiraz blends class.

The 2009 cabernet merlot, was among the finalists in the 2010 Jimmy Watson Trophy judging at the Melbourne Wine Show, has sold out in Australia but the 2009 shiraz is still available at $29 a bottle on ameliaparkwines.com.au.

In 2008 the Flametree 2007 Margaret River Cabernet Merlot, made by Jeremy, won the Jimmy Watson and was judged the best red wine and the best red blend at the 2008 Qantas Western Australian Wine Show and the best red blend at the 2008 Perth Wine Show.
