Our long awaited 2014 D’Orsa Reserve Shiraz has only been officially released for 1 week, however it has already achieved some incredible awards…
2016 Heathcote Wine Show
Heathcote Grand Terroir Trophy winner
For the 4th year in a row, Sanguine Estate has won the Heathcote Grand Terrior Trophy – the most prestigious award of the show and a very impressive trophy.
This trophy recognises the highest quality and style consistency across three Shiraz wines spanning a minimum of 6 vintages for one singular wine label. The D’Orsa Shiraz (named for Pietro D’Orsa, Tony’s Great Grandfather who was a winemaker in a neighbouring region during the 1870’s) took out the top honour with its 2007, 2012 and 2014 vintages. But the winning streak didn’t end there with the 2012 Estate Shiraz (aka Inception) winning the trophy for “Best Older Shiraz”.
2016 Winestate World’s Greatest Shiraz Challenge
Gold Medal (5 stars)
Best Shiraz $50 to $60
Equal 5th in the top 10 wines overall
With over 450 shiraz wines from around the world including Shiraz purchased by the organisers that are not normally entered into shows (eg Penfold’s Grange and Henschke Hill of Grace), our 2014 D’Orsa Shiraz achieved a Gold Medal (5 stars), was rated the Best Shiraz in the $50 to $60 price category and achieved equal 5th in the top 10 wines of the challenge. This is the best result we have received so far in this challenge up 3 places from the 2013 D’Orsa Shiraz’s 8th position last year.
Official results will appear in the Winestate September/October issue released on the 1st September. Click here to read the media release.
