Wolf Blass has been awarded the The Australia Post Trophy at the recent 2008 Perth Royal Wine Show. This acclaim comes in addition to its announcement as International Red Winemaker of the Year at the 2008 International Wine Challenge (IWC) in London.
The Wolf Blass collection of wines received a series of gold medals at the Perth Royal Wine Show; including the current vintage of Gold Label Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2007, Gold Label Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon 2006, Black Label 2004 and for upcoming future release wines — Platinum Label Shiraz 2006 and Black Label 2005.
The Royal Agricultural Society has now established the Perth Royal Wine Show as one of the most prestigious wine competitions in Western Australia, assessed by judges of international standard. The quality of entries has significantly strengthened over time, with this year over 2400 notable wines from Australia and New Zealand featured.
Chris Hatcher, Wolf Blass Chief Winemaker, said: “These are outstanding results for our winemaking team and a terrific acknowledgement for our premium collection of wines”.
