The 2008 Penfolds Reserve Bin A Chardonnay has won the “Grand Final” of the Australian Wine Show Circuit, winning the Fine Wine Partners Perpetual Trophy for Wine Show.
Wines vying for the trophy are considered to be in the “Grand Final” as they must have won a Best Wine trophy at one of the capital city shows in the last 12 months in order to qualify.
The 2007 Penfolds Reserve Bin A Chardonnay qualified by winning three trophies including Wine of Show at Hobart. The wine also won Best Chardonnay at Melbourne last year – and two trophies including Wine of Show at the 2009 Adelaide Hills Wine Show.
Not only was the 2007 Reserve Bin A Chardonnay successful in Australia last year - the 2005 & 2006 vintages both won a trophy while the 2008 vintage won five trophies in 2009, including Wine of Show in Canberra.
