It was all white on the night

Langhorne Creek based winemaker Tom Keelan is looking forward to seeing more local consumers become familiar with old-world wine varietals.

A Langhorne Creek winemaker has picked up an award at last month’s Australian Alternative Varieties Wine Show for one of his top-shelf white wines.
Tom Keelan’s The Pawn Wine Company picked up the Best of the Rest award for its premium grüner veltliner, The Austrian Attack.
Mr Keelan said the awards recognised varietals that the average Australian consumer might be unfamiliar with.
