Trentham Estate is ecstatic to announce their new-release 2015 Reserve Heathcote Shiraz has received a Silver medal at both the 2018 International Wine Challenge and 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards, in London – two of the most highly-regarded wine shows in the world.


The International Wine Challenge (IWC) is now in its 34th year. The IWC is accepted as the World’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition which assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region and vintage.  In its 15th year, the Decanter World Wine Awards (DWWA) is the world’s largest and most influential wine competition and is trusted internationally for its rigorous judging process.


As well as the Heathcote Shiraz having success, bronze medals were also awarded to Trentham’s 2017 Reserve Tumbarumba Chardonnay and the 2014 Reserve Murray Darling Noble Taminga.  “It is wonderful to be recognized at this level and we are pleased to receive ongoing success for our wines, especially our Heathcote Shiraz”, said Anthony Murphy, Trentham’s Chief Winemaker and Managing Director.


The 2015 Heathcote Shiraz, from the Reserve range, is just beginning to make its way out into the market.  Sourced from a single vineyard in the middle of the renowned Heathcote region; a region famous for being a premium Shiraz producing area.  This top class fruit has produced a rich and balanced wine, showing lifted fruit aromas of plum, dark cherry and chocolate. The palate is long with fruit sweetness balanced by fine mocha oak.


The Reserve range comprises six varietals and also includes a Tasmania Pinot Chardonnay Sparkling, Tasmania Pinot Noir and Coonawarra Cabernet Sauvignon.  The Reserve wine collection aims to epitomise the best these regions have to offer and provides a premium choice for those who enjoy the absolute finest in these varietals.  These award-winning wines are available for purchase HERE.
