Overnight we received the results from the Drinks Business Global Syrah Masters. We entered 3 wines, two receiving silver medals (2016 Barossa Shiraz and 2016 Vineyard Series Greenock Shiraz) and one, the 2016 Vineyard Series Ebenezer Shiraz receiving a Master’s Award. Master’s Award sit above Gold Medals, only one was awarded in our price category. This is a truly global Syrah/Shiraz competition judged in London by Master’s of Wine. Entries are received from all over the world.
To quote “And, coincidentally, between £30 and £50, we had the same tally at the top-end, with 14 Golds and one Master. Regarding the latter, the judges were seriously impressed by the Ebenezer Shiraz from Barossa, and produced in tiny quantities by Hayes Family Wines. The tables show the other lovely wines in this category, but we were pleased to see after the tasting was concluded that great wines from Barossa; the Valais (Switzerland’s Domaines Chevaliers) and Marlborough (New Zealand’s Giesen) had been rubbing shoulders quality-wise with Hermitage (Romain Duvernay).”
Unfortunately, the 2016 Ebenezer and Barossa Valley Shiraz are sold out. Those that have purchased stock and have it in the cellar should be very pleased. Last stocks of the 2016 Greenock Shiraz are available to order on our website.
