China wine expert Fongyee Walker MW is the international judge for the 2019 Langhorne Creek Wine Show.
Fongyee has a wealth of international experience as a wine judge and educator.
“I am very much looking forward to judging at Langhorne Creek and learning more about the potential for quality wine from this region,” she says.
“Many of my students in China are not aware of Langhorne Creek, so it would be great to have it more on their radar as a quality Australian region.”
Chair of judges is Nick Ryan and Kerri Thompson is the senior judge.
Three associate judges have been selected to represent both trade and industry – Shanteh Wong, head sommelier at Quay; Robert Cragg from Fleurieu Vintners and Cragg Cru; and Leon Talamini from Project Wine in Langhorne Creek.
Entries are now open for the sixth Langhorne Creek Wine Show and are due by Friday 15 March.
Langhorne Creek encourages entries for all show classes including the unique multi-regional class, which recognises Langhorne Creek’s history as a region where fruit has often gone into blends containing grapes from other regions. To enter this category, wines should have a minimum of 30 percent Langhorne Creek fruit.
The 2019 Langhorne Creek Wine Show is supported by major sponsor, Multi-Color Corporation.
Judging will take place on 30 April and 1 May. Winners will be awarded at a lunch on Friday 3 May at Lake Breeze Winery, catered by Simon Burr from the Olfactory Inn.
