We are very excited to announce that Hayes Family Wines was awarded the “Barossa Valley Grenache Winery of the Year” at the recent Melbourne International Wine Competition. In addition, the Hayes Family Wines 2016 Grenache was awarded a Gold medal and the Hayes Family Wines 2015 Mataro Shiraz was awarded a Silver medal.
We are very proud of these results, as more than 1100 wines from over 10 countries were entered in the Melbourne International Wine Competition. These awards are a testament to the dedication of the entire Hayes Family Wines team to producing the highest quality Barossa Valley wines.
Due to the exceptional quality of our 2016 Grenache, it was extremely popular and we have already sold out of this wine. Our 2017 Grenache is developing nicely, and we look forward to releasing new wines over the coming months, including a Grenache Rosé, a traditional oak barrel matured Grenache and our first Grenache matured in a ceramic egg. The egg is an alternative to our traditional oak barrel maturation, and should produce a finer style of Grenache. We look forward to seeing all three wines in the near future.
We do still have availability of our 2015 Mataro Shiraz, which was awarded a Silver medal, as well as our 2015 Shiraz and 2015 Mataro. These wines can be purchased online through the Buy Online tab above.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all our customers for your continued support of small, family wine producers. Your loyalty helps us continue making the quality wines that we all love to drink.
