Gramp's Shiraz 2004, has been declared the Best Shiraz and Best Varietal Wine of Show by the judges of the prestigious Sydney Royal Wine Show, at a black tie awards ceremony held in Sydney last week.
The Gramp's Shiraz 2004, sourced from various premium regions across South Australia and made by Orlando Wines, collected the The Liquor Merchants Association of Australia Perpertual Trophy for the best Varietal Wine, Shiraz in Show and The Liquorland Trophy for the Best Varietal Wine (Classes 15 to 24).
More than 2,300 wines from across Australia are entered in the Sydney Royal Wine Show and with a judging panel chaired by the esteemed James Halliday, the Show is considered one of the three most important in Australia.
The Gramp's Shiraz was described by judges as "fresh, juicy and peppery with a lovely silky finish".
Grand Master Baron of the Barossa, Bruce Thiele, is the spokesperson for the Gramp's wine and said the win is a great boost for the Gramp's brand.
"The win is a triumph for the Gramp's name which is legendary in the Barossa. This is the third consecutive vintage of this wine to collect a trophy at a major wine show, proof positive that this wine and its style is as consistent as it is quality. This wine is remarkably good value," said Thiele.
The Gramp's wines are distributed throughout Australia by Pernod Ricard and are available at leading fine wine retailers and restaurants and selected Liquorland stores for the bargain price of $15.99.
The Gramp's Botrytis Semillon 2004 also picked up a trophy at the Show. This delicious wine was awarded The Hanaminno Perpetual Trophy for the Best Sweet White Wine in the Show
