Spring brings Wedderwill Shiraz a double gold.

The results of the 15th annual Michelangelo CCL Label International Wine Awards (MIWA) were announced at a gala luncheon at the Lord Charles Hotel in Somerset West on September 9, 2011.

This year 226 producers entered a record total of 1 385 wines. A total of 475 wines received medals from the 15 international judges, of which 35 were Grand D’Or, 179 gold and 261 silver. Wedderwill wins a double gold, highest medal awarded category as only one of 2 Shiraz of the 1 385 wines entered in the competition.

The Grand D’Or medal was awarded to Wedderwill Shiraz 2005.

A rich and pepper-spiced fusion combine with soft savoury notes on the nose. Dark berries and violet with just a hint of organic earthiness is also subtly present. Black and white peppers carry through from the nose to a palate further enhanced by a game & ‘fynbos’ spice. The dark berries and violet become dark chocolate, achieved through a subtle, crafted blend of oak and tannins. A mineral follow through from the earthiness in the nose reflects the wine’s unique terroir. Altogether subtle, soft and round with good aging potential.
