Best of Region Trophy and 4 Golds for Deep Woods Estate in the James Halliday Australian Chardonnay & Cabernet Challenge 2022
We are absolutely ecstatic that the Deep Woods 2021 Reserve Chardonnay has won Best of Region for Margaret River in this year’s James Halliday Australian Chardonnay & Cabernet Challenge, beating 114 other Margaret River Chardonnay wines.
To win the best Chardonnay in Margaret River, a region that (in our humble opinion) produces the best Chardonnay in the world, is a feat not lost on us. Awarded 97 Points, this was the second highest rated Chardonnay of the competition, coming runner-up for the overall Chardonnay Trophy.
On this epic result, Deep Woods Estate Chief Winemaker Julian Langworthy said, “The James Halliday Chardonnay Challenge is one of the best, most competitive wine competitions in Australia and we are stoked to take out the Regional Trophy beating out the best and brightest Margaret River has to offer!”
The Deep Woods Estate 2021 Reserve Chardonnay is yet to be released; however, this 97-point wine will be available to members from 1 October and to the public from 1 November.
In the meantime, we have a few remaining six-packs of the Deep Woods Estate 2020 Reserve Chardonnay. This wine has won 8 Gold Medals, including regularly scoring 97 and 98 points with reviewers such as Nick Stock of Gourmet Traveller and James Halliday of the Halliday Wine Companion. This is consistently one of our most awarded and highly scored wines, selling out vintage after vintage.
On top of winning this Best of Region Trophy, Deep Woods Estate were also awarded four Gold Medals and two Silver Medals - an outstanding achievement against 646 of the country's best wines.
The James Halliday Australian Chardonnay & Cabernet Challenge is a celebration of Australia’s outstanding regional diversity and for these wines to come out on top is an incredible achievement.
We are extremely proud of Deep Woods Estate Chief Winemaker Julian Langworthy and the whole team in Margaret River.
