South Australian wines the best in Chile
18 July, 2017
South Australian wine makers have done it again.
Quoted from Australian Associated Press:
"Taylors Wines from Clare Valley have picked up two Great Gold medals and two Silver medals at the prestigious Catad'Or Wine Awards in Chile.
Third generation winemaker and managing director Mitchell Taylor says the win in Santiago is a great achievement and will boost the winery's exports to China.
"Given the success of wines from Chile in markets like China, awards like this give us an opportunity to benchmark our wines against some of the best," Mr Taylor told AAP on Tuesday."
In 2015–16, South Australia’s wine exports to China were worth $260 million – a 142% increase on the previous year – making them the state’s biggest wine export market.
The maker's winning wines:
- Great Gold medal: Taylors/Wakefield 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon
- Great Gold medal: Taylors/Wakefield 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon
- Silver medal: Taylors/Wakefield 2016 Riesling
- Silver medal: Taylors/Wakefield 2014 Syrah
(Taylors Wines export label is Wakefield Wines)
