Ms Faulkner, a wine jour­nal­ist and Aus­tralian Al­ter­na­tive Va­ri­eties’ Wine Show chief judge, chairs the panel which this year in­cludes Bests Great Western wine­maker and Oak­dene Wines’ wine­maker Steven Paul, from the Bel­lar­ine Penin­sula.

As­so­ci­ate judges are Gap­sted Wines’ wine­maker Blair Jensen and Ringer Reef wine­maker Julie Holm.

Mr Freuden­stein said wines in the show were di­vided into 25 classes, with al­ter­na­tive va­ri­eties mak­ing up the big­gest classes, fol­lowed by shi­raz.

He said the di­vi­sions were in­dica­tive of the North East’s pur­suit of tra­di­tional and al­ter­na­tive va­ri­eties.

The chal­lenge judg­ing, which was held in Ablett Pav­il­ion at McNa­mara Re­serve, was fol­lowed late yes­ter­day by a tro­phy pre­sen­ta­tion and a pub­lic tast­ing.

Beech­worth Vi­gnerons’ As­so­ci­a­tion’s spring tast­ing, which is open to the wine trade in the morn­ing and pub­lic in the af­ter­noon, will be held in Beech­worth Ser­vice­men’s Memo­rial Hall on Novem­ber 18.
