We're thrilled to share that our 2016 Reserve Shiraz was awarded a gold medal at the China Wine Competition in Shanghai earlier this month. Judged on quality, value for money and packaging, our Orange Shiraz secured a 91-point score from the judging panel.
“This win recognises our efforts in not only striving to deliver wine of a high-quality, but also priced to deliver great value to consumers,” said our Chief Winemaker, Mark Davidson.
“Our team have consistently produced exceptional wines from the Orange region and we’re excited to continue showcasing them on the world stage.”
Australian wine trade with China has ground to a halt since late November following accusations of Australian producers selling wine for below the cost of production. China represented approximately 5 per cent of Tamburlaine’s business prior to the tariffs.
“We’ve worked hard to build relationships in the Chinese market over the last 17 years. There is a clear demand for high quality wine at the right price point and this competition win demonstrates that,” Mark said.
The gold medal win in Shanghai was complemented by a number of silver medals, including our 2019 Shiraz (89 points), 2019 Malbec (83 points) and 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon (80 points).
