1 gold, 1 silver and 4 bronze myself (one or two of the bronzes were painfully close to being silvers too). Quite happy with that!

Thanks guys. I'm wrapped with the results.
The coveted Joe Illian Trophy, along with the mead cup, are now both in my possession. Along with 2 golds, 3 silvers and 4 bronze.
Special thanks and recognition to Gary Campanella, who jointly made a couple of the wines with me.
Together we ranked 3rd for Winemaker Of The Year.

The Best Country Wine (from about 250) is well documented and logged. Just not uploaded. I've been hellishly busy.
Watch this space.

Nice work KP! Were your entries from 14 & 15 the same or different batch?

Some were the same. Some were different.
The pyment gold was the same. The chai Bochet was barely 2 months old.
