33 Degrees South has impressed industry experts who awarded it a whopping 90 points in the National Liquor News annual Semillon and Blends blind tasting.
Awarded first place in the highly competitive category of wines under $15, the Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blitzed its competition.
Competing against brands from globally renowned wine regions such as the Hunter Valley and the Adelaide Hills, the humbly priced wine won not only on taste but also came in at the most aggressive price point.
Georgia Kollaras, Marketing Manager for Kollaras & Co said the team was elated with the win. “Margaret River wines are applauded all over the world, so in a saturated market it was important for us to look for outstanding quality, and elegance as a point of differentiation.”
While the thirst for Margaret River wines continues domestically, the export market also continues to grow. China has shown strong demand, with the establishment of stores exclusively for “Margaret River Wines’’. (ABC News – May 12, 2018)
The recognition is quite an achievement, as the wine was judged by a panel of seven industry experts with extensive wine knowledge and experience.
In addition to the Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, the 33 Degrees South range also features a refreshing Chardonnay, bold Cabernet Merlot and intensely flavoured Shiraz.
Ms Kollaras explained while it is always exciting to gain industry recognition, the credit instils a burning passion to set an even higher benchmark for future Kollaras brands.
