Cheap wine wins gold
Australian wine worth less than ten dollars won the gold medal for the International Wine Challenge.
A South Australian bottle of Clare Valley cleanskin Riesling, which only costs $9.80, bagged the highest prize during the prestigious awards night in London held last weekend.
The white wine is described on the label as “crisp and elegant… bursting with flavours of lemon and lime.”
The London International Wine Challenge is said to be one of the biggest in the world the winners are meticulously judged.
The wines that enter the competition are assessed by 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.
In an article from Newshub, Australian alcohol store Dan Murphy’s expressed their delight over the Australian wine’s win saying “This 2017 Clare Valley cleanskin is as zestful as it is affordable – and is a true representation of the quality that consumers can expect from our cleanskin range.”
Dan Murphy’s had been stocking the said wine in their store.
