Morris Wines makes a splash
RUTHERGLEN’S Morris Wines, a winery boasting a rich 156 year history, continues to make its presence felt within both the Australian and international wine scenes.
The winery has won a number of awards in recent years.
Earlier this year, the company made quite a splash at the Decanter World Wine Awards, held in the UK.
The Morris Wines Black Label muscat got both a gold medal and a trophy for being the overall winner in its class, while at the same awards, their Cellar One muscat and topaque, and Old Premium Rare muscat and topaque, all received gold medals in their categories.
One of the winery’s latest releases, the 2012 CHM cabernet sauvignon, received five stars in the Winestate December 2014 edition, as well as a glowing review.
Winestate honours also flowed this year, with Morris Wines being named the Best Large Cellar Door in Rutherglen at their 2015 awards.
Ebony Morris, from Morris Wines, said that the recognition was extremely humbling.
“We’re extremely proud that our fortifieds are holding up on the world stage,” Ms Morris said.
The cold weather is not stopping the events at Morris Wines, with plenty organised for the Winery Walkabout on the Queen’s Birthday weekend.
“We’re super excited for Walkabout and hope to see everyone there having a great time.”
The weekend’s activities include music from Toucan Rock and the opportunity to taste a range of the company’s wines.
The array of food will include desserts from Geoffrey Michael Patisserie, paella matched to Morris Wines malbec by Smart Hospitality, Italian street food from Pincho’s, and more.
The winery will also play host to a Christmas in July event for their wine club members, to be held in conjunction with Wodonga’s Broad Gauge Restaurant, with tempting fare to be served at the restaurant.
