Taylors Wines among SA winemakers cementing State as Nation’s Wine Capital

Taylors Wines have done it again! Among a swag of awards at the 34th annual MUNDUS VINI Grand International Wine Awards in Germany, the world-renown Clare Valley winemaker took out the title of “Best Producer from Australia” for the second year running.

The star of the show, the Jaraman Sauvignon Blanc 2023 was honoured with the trophy for “Best of Show Australian White”, while fellow Clare Valley winemakers, Kilikanoon, took the gong for “Best of Show Australian Red” for their Oracle Shiraz 2019.
The prestigious awards solidify South Australia as the Nation’s wine-producing capital, claiming 40 out of the 41 Grand Gold and Gold medals award to Australian wineries.
The MUNDUS VINI Grand International Wine Awards is one of Europe’s largest international wine shows, with wines from 45 different nations being tasted in person by more than 250 wine experts from around the world.
Taylors Managing Director and Winemaker, Mitchell Taylor, said the awards demonstrate the calibre of high-quality wines from our country’s wine-producing capital.
He expressed great excitement for the international recognition which he said comes at a crucial time for the Australian wine industry, as it anxiously awaits the re-opening of the Chinese market in the midst of a challenging economic climate.
“It’s an interesting time for the Australian wine industry. On one end, our winemakers continue to be celebrated for their skill and outstanding wines, which is something to celebrate. On the other, we continue to feel the pressures of ongoing trade tariffs in China on top of some of the most challenging international market conditions in over a decade.
“We’re feeling very optimistic about the potential of China reopening to our wines, particularly as we know through these awards we can demonstrate that Australian wines are some of the best in the world,” he said.
On top of Taylors two major awards, the long-standing family winery also took out 10 gold medals, including a “Grand Gold” for the 2022 Taylors Reserve Parcel Shiraz.

Taylor said International wine shows provide a valuable benchmarking opportunity for our wines against producers worldwide.

“Our winemakers strive to craft exceptional wines for people to enjoy with their friends and loved ones, and it’s amazing to see wines from across our portfolio recognised on the global stage. I’m so proud of the team and confident the future is bright for Australian wineries.”
