Annual Winestate Wins

The first results of Winestate magazine's annual Best of State wine tastings have just come in. Queensland's best includes Whiskey Gully Wines Black Rod Shiraz 2006. The Stanthorpe winery retails this wine through their cellar door and restaurant for $26/bottle, or via mail order.

Based on previous years results, the four star rated wine is expected to be one of many from the Granite Belt which is well regarded as Queensland's premier wine region. Only a small number of wine producers are awarded a rating during the year, half of all wines submitted do not pass through the judging process and fewer than 20% make the cut in the annual issue. The special Annual edition - on sale in January 2011 - includes a full listing featuring the Best of the Best.
