Judge praises Hills wine

The Advocate (Perth) - - NEWS -

WINE mak­ers in the Perth Hills could ri­val those of the Swan Val­ley re­gion and oth­ers around the world, ac­cord­ing to one of Aus­tralia’s most in­flu­en­tial wine crit­ics.

In­ter­na­tion­ally renowned judge Ian Macken­zie at­tended the Perth Hills Wine Show last week at the Zig Zag Cul­tural Cen­tre.

Mr Macken­zie said the new va­ri­eties in the re­gion were a point of dif­fer­ence the area could mar­ket and pro­mote.

“The thing that struck me was the di­ver­sity,” he said.

“Mediter­ranean ver­sions in the area show there is some pretty darn good wine­mak­ing in the re­gion.”
