The much awaited results for the 2012 Decanter World Wine Awards were officially announced at the 32nd London International Wine Fair yesterday.
Judged by some of the world’s best palates, All Saints Estate was thrilled to have been awarded one gold and two silver medals for its range of fortified Grand, Rare and Rutherglen Muscats. The winery also received a silver medal for its All Saints Estate 2010 Marsanne.
The Decanter World Wine Awards has been running for 9 years and is recognised by producers and consumers in Australia and overseas as one of the major wine shows in the world. In addition to this win, All Saints Estate also celebrated with the release of the official results for the world’s largest wine competition, the 2012 International Wine Challenge. Our winemaking team were delighted to receive three more gold medals for the Rutherglen, Grand and Rare Muscats as well as ‘Commended’ for its All Saints Estate 2010 Durif.
“All Saints Estate won the first Australian Gold Medal in London over 100 years ago and now we can claim four more. It’s a fantastic result for our winemaking team, Dan Crane and Nicholas Brown, and shows our international credentials as producers of exceptional wine” says Eliza Brown, CEO. Chief Winemaker Dan Crane is also very excited to “show the potential of this treasured corner of North East Victoria to the world”.
Eliza runs daily operations of the estate alongside her two siblings Angela and Nicholas Brown. All share the vision of producing outstanding premium table wines and Australia’s finest winery experience. They believe that innovation, youthful passion, sustainability, a healthy respect for traditional winemaking and a talented team of people are the key to delivering that vision.
