Granite Belt Wines Win Again

Since opening their doors in 2000, Sirromet Wines have developed their own style as a quality producer - and a proud Queenslander.  They have proved their mettle in wine competitions across Australia and internationally and this latest result has many sitting up and taking notice.

Competing against more than 5000 other wines from 35 countries, Sirromet's submission to the 2011 Challenge International du Vin Competition in France has landed them a gold medal.  The wine that pulled it off for Sirromet was their Premium 2007 St Jude's Grand Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, made from grapes grown on the Granite Belt.

Sirromet chose the Granite Belt to grow this fruit of exceptional quality which is derived from its high elevation and distinct terroir.
