Berlin Wine Trophy 2011Thursday, July 14, 2011
A record haul of 18 Medals – 9 Gold, including a Premium Gold, and 9 Silver Medals were awarded to Château Tanunda at the 2011 Berlin Wine Trophy.
A fantastic achievement, and one which further enhances the growing reputation of Château Tanunda on the INTERNATIONAL Wine Circuit as it endeavours to maintain the extremely high standards set in 2010.
2010 saw Château Tanunda finish the year with a record haul of 65 Medals including twenty five Gold Medals and five Trophies along with two Australian Wine Producer of the year awards. Not to mention a record haul at the International Wine and Spirit Challenge in London where the Everest wines won Best Shiraz and Best Single Vineyard red wine in the world.
And it looks like the pace is simply being maintained as the 2011 International Wine Show circuit unfolds with a Trophy and nine Gold Medals already in the trophy room.
2009 Three Graces, set the pace with a Premium Gold award – only 18 were awarded in total and this certainly raises the profile of the Chateau’s premium Cabernet blend.
‘The ‘Three Graces’ is a classic Bordeaux blend of three of the worlds most noble varieties but the real finesse and subtlety of the blend comes from the high percentage of Cabernet Franc – 36 percent in total. Said John Geber
The 2009 Vintage has certainly benefitted from the extensive barrel program which has seen the Chateau invest heavily in new French oak over the last three years.
This is certainly looking like the best blend we have put together - svelte and seamless blackcurrant fruit delicately interwoven with tobacco leaf, capsicum, black pepper and savoury French oak gives the wine an undeniable elegance and generous length.’
The ‘Terroirs of the Barossa’ range of Shiraz continued to impress and were all awarded Gold Medals along with the new release 2009 Single Vineyard Shiraz and the Chateau Cabernet Sauvignon.
The BerlinWine Trophy show which under OIV patronage and with the recognition of the Berlin Senate and the European Union is one of the most recognised Wine Shows in the world.
