Commenting on the 2011 results Freycinet Vineyard’s vigneron Claudio Radenti said:

It was particularly pleasing this year to receive the Top Gold Trophy for the 2000 Radenti against many fine Tasmanian Sparklings of various vintages. This is our 8th and perhaps most elegant Vintage yet.

As usual, much of the credit for our success must go to each member of our dedicated vineyard team who help ensure that the vineyard does its magic year on year.

Recognition such as this makes our hard work, attention to detail and unrelenting focus on producing consistent quality wine, well worthwhile.”
