Amelia Park Wins Trophy at Decanter World Wine Awards 2011
We are very proud and excited to announce that our Amelia Park Cabernet Merlot 2009 has been awarded the Trophy for the Best Australian Red Bordeaux Varietal over £10 at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards. This is a fantastic win for us against some extremely strong competition from around Australia.
The Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) has gained a reputation as one of the world’s most respected and influential wine competitions.
This year, the 211 DWWA judges were from all around the world, including a fifth of the world's population of Masters of Wine. Top sommeliers, including 12 Master Sommeliers, wine critics and wine writers, many of whom are also the aforementioned Masters of Wine, all contributed to the 2011 DWWA results.
During judging week, Tony Aspler, DWWA Regional Chair for Canada, told Decanter.com: “This is not an easy competition. In order to get a gold, a silver, a bronze or even a commended award, you have to be a top-notch wine. The quality of the judges, and I’m talking about people from all over the world who are at that are at the top of their game are tasting these wines. If you get an award here, you’ve achieved something to really be proud of.”
