"The International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) has released the much anticipated Southern Hemisphere wine results."

"The International Wine and Spirit Competition, founded in 1969, is the premier competition of its kind in the world. Its aim is to promote the quality and excellence of the world's best wines, spirits and liqueurs.

All entries of wines, spirits and liqueurs are blind tasted in groups divided by variety, region and vintage as necessary. Awards are made on a points system and sponsored trophies are presented in selected categories.

The IWSC is supported by a group of Vice Presidents made up of some of the most influential men and women in the trade. This year’s President is Mauricio González Gordon of Gonzalez Byass."

We are very proud to have received the following results;

All Saints Estate 2010 Durif - BRONZE

All Saints Estate Rutherglen Muscat - SILVER

Judges Tasting Notes: "Amber tawny, pale light green rim. Sticky toffee pudding. dates and citrus marmalade aromas, decadently rich and mouthfilling. Once this is in the mouth, it stays and curls up like a comfortable, grinning friend."

All Saints Estate Grand Rutherglen Muscat - GOLD

Judges Tasting Notes: "Medium amber core colour, golden edge. Fudge and toffee scents mingle with sultana and grape juice aromas with flicks of spice. A delightful freshness pervades the richness and sweetness of this wine."

All Saints Estate Rutherglen Rare Muscat - SILVER

Judges Tasting Notes: "Rich amber mahogany bronze colour, olive green rim. Walnut skin, treacle tart and christmas cake scents. Dark rancio flavours bite deep through the layers of rich sweet concentration. This hits both the top back of the mouth and the protected under layers of the tongue. There is no escape from this all pervasive and ultimately extremely satisfying beverage."
