Riversdale has top medal winner
Riversdale Estate Crater Tasmania Chardonnay has become the State’s most awarded chardonnay. The Coal River Valley wine won a gold medal at the recent International Cool Climate Wine Show in Victoria, bringing its gold medal tally to 30 since its first release in 2008. It has also won numerous trophies and several best-in-show awards. Winemaker Ian Roberts told The Examiner: “I didn’t realise until someone did the numbers. I knew it was up there with awards, but it’s the most awarded chardonnay produced in Tasmania. It makes it one of Australia’s most celebrated portfolio of wines; and it just so happens that it comes from Tasmania.” Riversdale Estate is in a north-facing position fronting Pittwater. It enjoys all-day sun which creates an ideal micro-climate for grape ripening.
