WA wines exceed expectations for international judge
West Australian wines exceeded the expectations of Wine Show of WA international judge Jane Parkinson. The UK-based wine journalist, author and broadcaster was in WA for two weeks as part of the 16-person panel of judges for this year’s annual event. Parkinson said her expectation of high quality wines was “more than met”. “It was my first experience judging in a state show – I have been the international judge at a city show in Australia before – and I really enjoyed focussing on the wines from that particular state, especially when we don’t see as many WA wines in the UK as we do wines from other Australian states,” she said.
