In our show’s short history, it has grown in stature and purpose to become a highly professional and influential show. Our judging panel has quickly established a formidable reputation for identifying the very best in modern chardonnay, across the full gamut of Australian styles.
This is a wine show whose only agenda is to track down, appreciate and reward the best that Australian chardonnay can offer, a philosophy we share in common with our patron, James Halliday.
James Halliday – “Chardonnay is enjoying its spring weather, after a prolonged, dark winter. Winemakers, wine writers, retailers, restaurateurs and consumers are all agreed: it is better than ever before. But winemakers, being winemakers, are not content to rest on their laurels. The challenge is (as ever) to make even better wines next vintage (and each vintage thereafter) than ever before. And this is what the Challenge is all about.”
