Tasmanian wines have again been winning trophies and awards in prestigious global competitions.
At London’s 34th International Wine Challenge — widely recognised as the world's finest and most meticulously judged wine competition — three international trophies were awarded to Tasmania.
The challenge uses blind assessments of every wine, judging for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges.
The 2011 Jansz Premium Vintage Cuvée won the Australian Sparkling Trophy, while the 2014 Dalrymple Cave Block Chardonnay was awarded both the Australian White Wine Trophy and the Australian Chardonnay Trophy. Both wines are from the Pipers Brook region in the north-east.
Gold medals were awarded to the Bay of Fires 2015 Chardonnay, 2015 Tolpuddle Chardonnay, 2015 Devil’s Corner Riesling, the 2015 pinot noirs from Josef Chromy and Tolpuddle and the 2013 Stefano Lubiana Sasso Pinot Noir.
