    Default 3 from 3!

    Hi guys. I'm just showing off because I'm so excited.
    I entered 3 wines in The Frankston Wine Show which is the biggest competitor to our very own wine show.
    1. Semillon - Bronze
    2. Dry Shiraz Pyment (13%) - Silver
    3. Sack Shiraz Pyment (18%) - Silver

    Admittedly, we only entered our pick of the wines, but to get three medals is awesome.

    Congratulations!
    That is awesome (even if it is the easy, squishy-grape stuff in the case of the bronze winner ).

    Thanks. The semillon actually took the most work. Another reason why mead is awesome.

    Take a bow. That is very impressive.

    No elderberry, I know sending a bottle in is tough to part with but you could have made it 4X4! WVMJ

    Yes, the elderberry will be entered in our show.
    These three were in conjunction with my wine brewmate, so he wanted to enter them.
