Gartelmann’s shiraz shines at Orange wine show
FOR the second consecutive year, the 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz has received the trophy for the Best Red Wine at the 2017 Orange Region Wine Show. In announcing the award, respected wine judge Nick Bulleid said it was now even more apparent that shiraz had established itself as clearly the premium red wine for the Orange region.
Winery owner Jorg Gartelmann said their 2015 ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz won this award at last year’s Orange Wine Show and it was rare that a wine was awarded the same trophy in consecutive shows.
“It’s testament to the commitment of our team, including our growers and winemaker. Our wines from Orange, including this shiraz, along with our chardonnay and pinot gris, continue to improve as we build experience in the region,” he said. Gartelmann Wines has been working with a number of Orange region grape growers during the past few years. While based in the Hunter Valley, Jorg and Jan Gartelmann have expanded their portfolio of wines, sourcing the best varieties from regions within the Central Ranges to complement their Hunter Valley wines.
Distribution: Gartelmann Wines are available from the cellar door, select restaurants and via gartelmann.com.au.
