Canberra’s wine scene continues to go from strength-to-strength with one of our personal favourites, Mount Majura Vineyard, recently being recognised for an amazing vintage. They’ve got some delicious news about their recent efforts.

There’s certainly a lot of excitement around the region regarding the current vintage. Many are saying this could be the best one we’ve ever had, and the quality of the crop will only serve to highlight the hard work that has been done over the last couple of decades by many of our favourite growers from Lake George through to Murrumbateman.

Last week the 201 edition of the James Halliday Wine Companion was released and Mount Majura received some impressively high scores. In fact, seven of their wines cam in at 95 points, while the Riesling smashed it with a 97. Here’s the full rundown:

  • 97 points Riesling 2014 (sold out)
  • 95 points Pinot Noir 2013
  • 95 points Shiraz 2013
  • 95 points TSG 2013
  • 95 points Tempranillo 2013
  • 95 points Rock Block 2013
  • 95 points Dry Spur 2013
  • 95 points Little Dam 2013

As you might expect, a lot of these wines are in very short supply, so you’re going to need to be quick in order to get your hands on remaining stock. In particular, the 2013 TSG and 2013 Shiraz are almost gone, and only slightly more of the 2013 Pinot Noir.

Anyone interested in a weekend drive out on the beautiful Majura Parkway?
