Holy Goat the big winner

August 2010

If you’ve tried Holy Goat’s La Luna goat cheese, you won’t be surprised that it won the RAS President’s Award for 2010. This is a best of the best comp and Holy Goat was pitted against Bulla Dairy’s Light Sour Cream; 2008 Yalumba Hand Picked Shiraz Viognier; 2006 Peter Lehmann Wigan Eden Valley Riesling; Huon Aquaculture’s Banquet Slice Tasmanian Smoked Salmon; and T&R Pastoral’s Murraylands Premium Lamb.

I was fortunate enough to attend the nose-bagger’s dinner where the prize was announced and we tried all these fine products, perhaps most especially, at least in my case, the Yalumba Shiraz Viognier. What a tough judging gig, picking a winner across such a diverse range. I reckon any of them deserved it, but maybe Carla Meurs and Ann-Marie Monda’s sensational cheese deserved it most of all. And for all the doubters out there, remember that it’s made from pasteurised milk.
