International Wine Challenge Medals 

Congratulations to the entire team for another successful year at the International Wine Challenge, with Wolf Blass awarded the Barossa Valley Shiraz Trophy for Wolf Blass Medlands Vineyard Platinum Label Shiraz 2013, as well as eight Gold, 23 Silver and 18 Bronze Medals.

Australia celebrated great success at the international competition, cementing its position as a world-class wine producer, finishing second in the 2017 overall medal count, being beaten only by France.

Peter McCombie, Co-Chairman of the IWC commented: “Wine producers in Australia have had another fantastic year at the International Wine Challenge. The array of medals awarded is testament to what Australian winemakers are capable of.”

In its 34th year, the International Wine Challenge is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged competition. The IWC assesses every wine ‘blind’ and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage.  Each medal winning wine is tasted on at least three separate occasions by a minimum of 10 different judges including Masters of Wine.
