Leading Australian winery, Wolf Blass, was named ‘Red Winemaker of the Year’ at last week’s prestigious International Wine Challenge in London. It is a triple treat for Wolf Blass, being awarded this accolade for the third time following wins in 2008
and 2013.

In its 33rd year, the International Wine Challenge (IWC) is recognised as one of the world’s finest, most meticulously judged and influential wine competitions. Wolf Blass came out on top ahead of 15,000 entries from more than 50 countries, demonstrating their strength and consistency of winemaking across wine styles.

Wolf Blass Chief Winemaker, Chris Hatcher (above left, with Senior Winemaker Steven Frost), comments: “Being named Red Winemaker of the Year for the third time is humbling. It is a great triumph for Wolf Blass, reinforcing our reputation as one of Australia’s truly iconic winemakers with a strong history of major global award wins. Wolf Blass is renowned for making wines of ‘Quality, Character and Consistency’ and this accolade cements this; given wines across our entire range contributed to this outstanding win.”

The IWC assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage. Throughout the rigorous judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges and awards including medals (Trophy, Gold, Silver, Bronze) and Commended and Great Value awards.
