More good news for Aussies at Decanter Wine Awards
I first reported about the good results for Australian wines at the 2010 Decanter World Wine Awards back in May, but since then we’ve had an update, with the international trophies announced just this week.
The good news is that, according to Decanter, Australia makes both the best Chardonnay over $18 and the best sweet fortified in the world. Whilst we can argue that it’s just another wine show, the Decanter World Wine Awards carry particular traction in the UK, a market that is particularly important to the Australian wine industry.
Even better news is that both of these high quality, proudly regional wines come from the sort of conscientious, regionally focused wineries that deserve to win trophies.
Great to see.
