DWWA: 7 Golds, 38 Silvers & 5 Trophies

The DWWA has come a long way in the 13 years it has been awarding wines since its inaugral year in 2004. Now with two-hundred-and-nineteen expert judges, including 65 Masters of Wine and 20 Master Sommeliers to sift through the 17,200 entries. 

 

Below is a round up of our top award winners.

Platinum - Best in Show - Best Value Red Rhône Varietals 
Berton Vineyard, Reserve Barossa Shiraz 2015
(Future Vintage)

The fragrant bouquet of creamy Christmas cake leads into a multifaceted palate of black fruit, prune, spice and a savoury godspeed with affably dry, chalky notes. Bursting with quality.

 

Platinum - Best Argentinian White Single-Varietal
Zorzal, Eggo Blanc de Cal Sauvignon Blanc 2016 
(Future Vintage)

Beguiling aromas of lemon and lime peel before a silky palate. The superb finale is flinty, grassy and long. A tremendous wine that will open up beautifully with food. Bravo!
 

Platinum - Best Value Chilean Red Bordeaux Varietals 
Viña Pérez Cruz, Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon 2015 
(Future Vintage)

Lovely dark fruits and some leafy notes on the nose. The intense aromas follow through on the juicy palate with mint and cassis. Ripe tannins, subtle oak, nice concentration and long finish.Good blend!

 

Platinum - Best Greek White
Ktima Gerovassiliou, Viognier PGI Epanomi 2016

An outstanding example showing tropical fruits aromatics with supreme balance. A great intensity of fruit with seductive peach and white floral notes. Elegant with a silky texture; one of the finest of its class and style.


Platinum - Best Asian White 
Grace Winery, Koshu Private Reserve 2016 
(Future Vintage)

A gently floral nose of rose petals and lychee also has exotic pineapple and grapefruit pith hints revealing themselves. Weighty white apple and citrus fruits on the fresh palate leads into a harmonious apple peel finish.
