Kalamunda Reporter - - Front Page -

THE 2018 Swan Val­ley Wine Show is set to be the big­gest yet with a record num­ber of en­tries for its 30year an­niver­sary.

The show, from Au­gust 22-24, is highly an­tic­i­pated this year fol­low­ing a great 2017 vintage for red blends in the Swan Val­ley and a strong 2018 vintage for white blends.

Sin­ga­pore’s Chee Wee Lee, a wine pro­fes­sional, judge and writer for De­can­ter Mag­a­zine, will be this year’s in­ter­na­tional guest judge.

Swan Val­ley and Re­gional Wine­mak­ers As­so­ci­a­tion pres­i­dent Yuri Berns said ev­ery year hun­dreds of wines were sub­mit­ted for judg­ing from around the Swan Val­ley, but that there were a record num­ber this year.

This year also marks 184 years of the Swan Val­ley, the old­est wine re­gion in WA and sec­ond old­est in Aus­tralia.

Mr Berns said the wine show was a fan­tas­tic way to show off the Swan Val­ley and lo­cal pro­duc­ers on a na­tional and in­ter­na­tional stage.

“It’s re­ally great see­ing how far the show has come in the past 30 years,” he said.­mu­ni­ d485615 Pic­ture: David Baylis
