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.
