On Sunday July 24th Briar Ridge held an anniversary celebration to commemorate 25 years with Karl Stockhausen. The Karl Stockhausen Signature Series began in 1991 and includes a Semillon, Chardonnay and Shiraz that is created in the traditional style which the Hunter Valley is famous for. The luncheon was held at Muse Restaurant with a four course menu carefully selected by Head Chef, Troy Rhoades-Brown, to complement the wines on offer. Vintage Club members and guests were treated to museum wines, which included vintages such as the 2005 Karl Stockhausen Semillon, the 2011 Karl Stockhausen Chardonnay and the 2010 Karl Stockhausen Shiraz.

Briar Ridge Head Winemaker, Gwyneth Olsen, presented Karl with a magnum of 2014 Karl Stockhausen Signature Series Shiraz and delivered a touching message from winery owner, Dr John Davis, who wasn’t able to attend.
