Wolf Blass Triumphs at the China Wine & Spirits Awards Best Value

Wolf Blass has enjoyed outstanding success at the prestigious China Wine & Spirits Awards Best Value 2016, having been awarded the Barossa Valley Wine of the Year Trophy for the Wolf Blass Medlands Vineyard Platinum Label Shiraz 2012, six Double Gold Medals, 18 Gold Medals and 2 Silver Medals.

Wolf Blass Chief Winemaker, Chris Hatcher, is humbled and delighted with the awards.

“I would like to extend my congratulations to the entire team on these impressive results. The trophy win is testament to the outstanding efforts of our viticulture and winemaking teams to grow exceptional quality fruit from our Medlands Vineyard at Dorrien in the heart of the Barossa Valley.

“Our Platinum Vineyard Shiraz has been sourced from the Medlands Vineyard since 2008, a site that provides exactly what Platinum stands for - intense, concentrated flavours, purity of fruit, elegance and finesse, and structural definition.”

The 2012 Medlands Vineyard Platinum Label Shiraz will be released in March 2016.
