|Thank you to everyone who entered Dan Murphy’s Australian Highlands Wine Show this year and congratulations to all the medal and trophy winners.|
|The Wine Show featured an outstanding judging panel chaired by Huon Hooke, with Nick Bulleid MW, Rob Geddes MW, Peter Nixon (Head of Fine Wine in Australia for Dan Murphy’s), Alison Eisermann (wine educator, winemaker & international wine show judge) and Frank Vanderloo (winemaker at Mount Majura). A medal at this Show was certainly well earned.|
