[London June 2023]
The prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards for 2023 were announced earlier this month in London, with Gold Medals awarded to our our Classic Muscat (96 points) and Museum Rare Muscat (95 points). A huge accolade for our fortified program and ranking the Classic Muscat in the top 21 fortified wines of the world!
Also judged in London this month was the 39th annual International Wine Challenge. Gold medals were awarded to our Artizan Rare Muscat (95 points) and Rare Tawny Fortified (95 points)
"Australian fortified wine triumphs! - Australia has a long and distinguished history of making fortified wines, but production declined in the 60s. It is great to see winemakers responding to the growing global demand for fortified wines and drawing on their winemaking heritage to produce some outstanding wines in this category” commented IWC Co-Chair, Sam Caporn MW.
