Wolf Blass tops off an outstanding year


Wolf Blass tops off an outstanding year being named ‘International Winemaker of the Year’ at the 2013 International Wine and Spirit Competition.

Leading Australian winery, Wolf Blass, has been named International Winemaker of the Year at the 2013 International Wine and Spirit Competition (IWSC) in London overnight.

This is the third time that Wolf Blass has won this highly acclaimed award, the first being 1992 followed by 2002.

The IWSC was established in 1969 and is recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious and influential wine competitions with exhibitors from almost 90 countries as well as boasting the most highly qualified and trained group of international judges of any wine and spirit competition.

On top of being named International Winemaker of Year, Wolf Blass dominated the competition being awarded four trophies including:

Australian Producer of the Year
Best Single Vineyard Red Wine for the Wolf Blass Platinum Label 2008
Best Single Vineyard White Wine for the Wolf Blass White Label Riesling 2001
Best Riesling for Wolf Blass White Label Riesling 2001


Wolf Blass Chief Winemaker, Chris Hatcher says this win caps off an exceptional year for Wolf Blass on the Global stage.

“Winning International Winemaker of the Year at one of the world’s most respected and prestigious wine competitions is incredibly special. It is particularly pleasing to receive the highest accolade for our Single Vineyard wines – Platinum Label Shiraz 2008 from our Medlands Estate “Orchard” vineyard and White Label Riesling 2001 from Rogers Block in Eden Valley. Both outstanding expressions of regional excellence.



“This is a great reward and recognition of the dedication and hard work our winemaking and viticultural teams put into making exceptional quality wines and I am extremely proud of them.

“We treasure awards won at respected International wine competitions as they are a true independent assessment of our wines from some of the most experienced and respected wine judges in the world”
