Of the four gold medals Swedish Hill won at California’s Pacific Rim, three of them were awarded to Rieslings!
Swedish Hill’s 2012 Dry Riesling, 2012 Riesling, Blue Waters Riesling and the sparkling Naturel were the gold medalists at this competition. Its exciting to see the diversity of wines, even across the same varietal, all do very well at competitions.
“We’re always eagerly anticipating the results of wine competitions that we have entered, and are honored that our Rieslings have been consistently successful at numerous competitions across the nation,” commented owner Dave Peterson on the recent results. “With 25 gold medals between the three Rieslings we currently offer, it’s a tremendous affirmation of their consistent high quality, as well as how excellent the Finger Lakes region as a whole is for making Riesling.”
For each of the Rieslings, this was not the first time they have impressed judges. The 2012 Dry Riesling now has nine gold medals, the 2012 Riesling has an impressive 10, and the Blue Waters Riesling has six.For more information about Swedish Hill’s award-winning wines, click here
