Our approach to Quin Wines has always been simple; a nod to tradition, but leap to the stars. Wines without boundaries.
At the beginning of the year we were excited to have two of our wines recognised with gold medals and three silvers by The Real Review. The Real Review are a team of wine critics who deliver authentic, unbiased opinions on what they believe to be the most interesting and current wines in Australia and New Zealand.
With thousands of outstanding wines produced across Australia and New Zealand, we are proud that Quin Wines registered on their radar for our individual wines and walked away with gold and silver awards for a selection of our wines.
• GOLD – Quin Wines 2016 Barossa Valley Shiraz: 95/100
• GOLD – Quin Wines 2017 Riesling: 95/100
• SILVER – Quin Wines 2017 Eden Valley Shiraz: 94/100
• SILVER – Quin Wines 2017 Grenache: 91/100
• SILVER – Quin Wines 2014 Barossa Valley Shiraz: 90/100

Further to reviewing individual wines, each year The Real Review also create their own list of wineries that they believe are innovative, unique and create outstanding wines. While the list includes many high-profile wineries with global names for themselves, this year several new entrants were added to their ‘Top Wineries of Australia 2019’ list, and we were one of them!
This is what they had to say;
“The newbies include Quin Wines (number 76 on the list), which is the private venture of Andrew Quin, winemaker at the leading Barossa winery Hentley Farm. Already famous for his big reds at Hentley Farm (including such memorable names as The Beauty and The Beast) Andrew Quin has – like some magician – conjured some outstanding wines for his debut. They include an Eden Valley riesling, Eden Valley shiraz, Barossa Valley shiraz and Barossa grenache.”
We were thrilled that The Real Review’s perception of us aligned with our vision for the business and for our individual wines. We’ve worked hard to create wines that are edgy, bold and unique, and love that our approach was commended.
