Sage Hill Wines, one of the smaller vineyards in the Malibu Coast American Viticultural Area has just won awards at the 2015 International Decanter Awards for two of their wines.
Sage Hill’s 2013 Syrah/Cabernet Sauvignon Special Blend took the bronze and the 2010 Syrah was awarded a commendation. Sage Hill is the first vineyard from the Malibu area to receive recognition from this international competition with more than 15,000 wines from around the world being entered. It is in the company of many Napa and Central Coast vineyards, beating out many California wines and putting the Malibu region on the global wine map.
Sage Hill is a boutique vineyard planted in 2007 near Latigo Canyon with just an acre of vines. Apart from Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon Sage Hill also grows Sauvignon Blanc grapes and makes Rose from the Syrah
grapes.
Gabrielle Harris, the vineyard founder welcomed the awards.
“The International Decanter awards and recognition of the Malibu Coast AVA fills me with pride,” she said. “I am truly encouraged by the enthusiasm and what it means to Malibu wines in general.”
Sage Hill winemaker B. Alan Geddes was not surprised the wines won international awards.
“Sage Hill Vineyards ... has consistently produced outstanding fruit that aids me in the wine making process to produce the award-winning, high quality wine that you can enjoy,” Geddes said. “Cheers to us.”
