2022 Langhorne Creek Wine Show winners announced

The results are in, and we have your winners. See the full list below!

The 2022 Langhorne Creek Wine Show again revealed the strength of the classics like Cabernet from the region, while shining a light on the quality of the flourishing lesser-known varieties making their mark on the wine scene.

Langhorne Creek winery Lake Breeze won the pre-eminent award of Champion Wine of Show, a feat now achieved over four consecutive years of awards from the Langhorne Creek Wine Show.

The Lake Breeze Wines 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon, the highest scoring wine of the show also won the Orora Beverages-Stelvin Closures Best Cabernet Sauvignon trophy.

Lake Breeze additionally won the Vinpac Trophy for Best Sparkling Wine, White Wine or Rosé with their 2021 Reserve Chardonnay and the Cooperages 1912 Trophy for Best Blended Red Wine for their 2019 Arthur’s Reserve. The 2013 version of the Arthur’s Reserve was the winner of the CCL Industries Best Museum or Fortified Wine Trophy. To round out their amazing winning streak Lake Breeze Wines 2020 Bull Ant Shiraz snapped up the Project Wine Trophy for Best Shiraz of the show.

This year, Chair of Judges Charlie Seppelt was joined by Pablo Theodoros from Stanley Bridge Tavern as well as Marie Clay from Treasury Wine Estates and freelance wine reviewer and writer Tony Love. Charlie Seppelt said “This year’s Langhorne Creek Wine Show really was something to behold. Across all classes were wines made with care, detailed thought, and restraint. Rosé and white classes lifted the bar considerably with fresh exuberance and style. Alternate red varieties continue to be a growing and glowing set of wines to judge with lovely pure wines of high drinkability. The classic varieties for the region of Shiraz, Malbec and Cabernet were once again the strength of the show with all proving their class and stature for the region.”

Kimbolton Wines took home the Belvidere Winery Award for Producer of the Year, presented to the winery with the highest total of judges’ points calculated from their three highest pointed wines from across the Sparkling, White or Rose and Red Wine classes of wine show.

The Peats Soil and Garden Supplies Award for Viticulturist of the Year was awarded to Sarah Keough, recognising her contribution to the industry and the Langhorne Creek region.

The awards ceremony on Friday 13th May saw 200 grape growers, winemakers, trade and winery staff gathered for lunch and a regional celebration of the end of the vintage at Lake Breeze’s stunning event space.

The show judged 190 entries from 28 exhibiting wineries, with 134 medals awarded. Associate judges were Jackson Janz and Siddharth Pachare.
