Best Rosé at the Pacific Rim Wine Competition

Pinot Noir Rose - Best of Class!Below is a letter from the Pacific Rim Wine Competition regarding one of Shawn’s wines:

Hi Shawn,


Your Pinot Noir Rosé, 2008, Leelanau Peninsula was awarded the Best Pacific Rim Rosé Wine at the 2009 Pacific Rim Wine Competition last week.

Your wine certainly knocked the feet out from under the judges and caused a great stir. They were so impressed by your wine that we were forced for the first time ever, to create a Best Pacific Rim Rosé Wine category. Beautiful wine!

About 2000 wines were entered by close to 400 wineries, we had 54 Rosé and Blush wines. Your wine competed against all of the reds which totaled 954 entries. It came in second to the Grand Champion (Barbera by Jeff Runquist), and the judges were so upset at the lack of a Best Rosé Award that it was agreed we had to create one. You have made history.

You will be receiving the printed results book and medals in the near future. All of the results are attached.

Again Congratulations!

Yolanda Daly, Director
Pacific Rim Wine Competition
