Huon Hooke awards 2016 VRM 5 stars!



Chief Winemaker, Marc Scalzo and the Rutherglen Estates team are thrilled to announce,

Huon Hooke has awarded our flagship, premium white wine 5 stars!

Our 2016 Renaissance VRM (Viognier Roussanne Marsanne) was awarded 95 points from the leading Australian wine expert and critic who had the following to say about the Rhone blend:

“Medium to full yellow colour. The aromas are full and ripe with stone fruit and faintly herbal notes, embellished by smoky barrel-ferment oak. The wine is undeniably rich, ripe and full-on. And also very complex. This is a Rhône-style dry white with the full monty. I love it!”

This highly-acclaimed wine is our latest release and has already been awarded two silver medals at recent wine shows, as well as named on the Vic 100 list as one of Victoria’s top 100 wines for 2018.

Our 2016 VRM has a creamy texture with enduring citrus & stone fruit on the finish. Impress friends or family by serving it with a creamy seafood risotto or slow cooked pork belly.
