THE an­nual New York World Wine and Spir­its Com­pe­ti­tion has awarded a $15 South Aus­tralian shi­raz with the top hon­our of Best Shi­raz.

The 2015 Tay­lors Promised Land Shi­raz came out on top in the highly com­pet­i­tive shi­raz cat­e­gory and re­ceived the high­est recog­ni­tion of a Dou­ble Gold medal at the pres­ti­gious an­nual com­pe­ti­tion held on Fifth Av­enue.

It was a hat-trick for Tay­lors’ shi­raz wines, with gold medals also go­ing to the 2015 Es­tate Shi­raz ($20) and 2015 Re­serve Par­cel Shi­raz ($25).

This is the first time the win­ery has won a tro­phy at these awards but fol­lows on three Dou­ble Gold medals in 2015 for the 2013 St An­drews Shi­raz, 2014 Es­tate Shi­raz and 2014 Es­tate Mer­lot.

Tay­lors’ third gen­er­a­tion man­ag­ing direc­tor Mitchell Tay­lor (pic­tured) said he was thrilled to see the fam­ily’s Promised Land range suc­ceed at such a pres­ti­gious in­ter­na­tional com­pe­ti­tion.
