Aravina Estate – Have won gold at the 2015 Boutique Wine Awards. The 2014 Wildwood Ridge Reserve Chardonnay has been awarded Gold, and the 2014  Semillon and 2013 Merlot both received Silver medals in their respective class. Winemaker, Jodie Opie said “It further reiterates that the old vineyard planted in 1986 is capable of producing high quality fruit and whilst Gold medal and Trophies can be attributed to modern wine-making, the reality is that it must start with the vineyard.” Love your work guys!
