Sauvignon Blanc tops Decanter

Tasmania’s 2014 Bay of Fires Sauvignon Blanc has topped its class at the Decanter World Wine Awards in London. The wine collected the International Trophy for Sauvignon Blanc over £15, marking it as the very best of its variety.

It is the second time a Tasmanian sauvignon blanc has been judged the best in the world, following the same award in 2009 for the 2007 Tamar Ridge Kayena Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc. Josef Chromy topped the chardonnay section in 2013, while various Tasmanian sparkling wines and pinot noirs have collected national and international trophies.

Brand Tasmania’s Wine and Food Writer, Graeme Phillips, said: “[This success] comes on top of Tolpuddle 2013 Pinot Noir winning the trophy for the Best Australian Red Wine at the International Wine Challenge in London. Between them, Tasmanian wines have won two of the top awards at two of the world’s most prestigious wine shows.” The Decanter Awards’ Regional Trophy for Australian Sparkling Wine over £15 went to the 2002 House of Arras EJ Carr Late Disgorged, which is made in South Australia using Tasmanian grapes.
