NY entry is 'Best American Riesling' Down Under

CANBERRA, Australia -- The folks from Sheldrake Point Vineyards know they produce a great Riesling wine, but that was underlined when their 2010 Riesling Ice Wine won the USA Perpetual Trophy for Best American Riesling at the recent Canberra International Riesling Challenge.

That came after it had earned a "Top Gold" designation in that category, en route to the big award.

The honor came just a year after Sheldrake Point's 2008 Late Harvest Riesling was named Best Sweet Wine in the World at the same event.

A gold medal went to Anthony Road Winery's 2008 Martini Reinhardt Selection Riesling Berry Selection. Other New York wineries won one silver and 10 bronze awards in this Riesling-only competition.
