The inaugural Drink Easy Awards came to a close with a three-day blind tasting of wine, beer and cider, spirits and – in an Australian first – non-alcoholic beverages.

There were 11 wine categories, including sparkling white and red wines; pét-nat; rosé; vermouth, aromatised and fortified; and skin-contact and orange wines. For both white and red wines, the categories were light and refreshing, medium bodied and textural, and full flavoured.

We’re excited that Mac Forbes Wines won 5th place for its EB47 Riesling 2019. Congratulations to Mac – read more about it here.
