In what can only be regarded as a testament to the Kollaras brand, National Liquor News has awarded our Italian brand, Riunite Lambrusco, a whopping 85 points in their annual Sparkling Red blind tasting.
Up against strong competition from Mclaren Vale, Coonawarra and the Barossa, the humbly priced Riunite Lambrusco has been placed in the top five sparkling wines, for under $14.
Interestingly, Riunite proudly boasts the most aggressive price point of the group, with other awardees coming in at almost two times the price of Riunite’s LUC
Kollaras & Co’s Marketing Manager Georgia Kollaras, is not surprised by the wines’ success, describing the accomplishment as a great feat; “What people may not necessarily know is that Riunite has grown their Lambrusco to become the world’s number one. This fantastic achievement is testament to its unsurpassed quality.”
Whilst Italian wines have been enjoying healthy growth in Australia over the last 10 years, Riunite has continued to mark their territory as Italy’s largest wine company, and the largest exporter of Italian wine across the globe, now aptly named as the most influential winemakers in Italy, over the last 25 years.
The wines were all blind tasted by six industry experts who offer many years of experience and knowledge. The wines were scored on appearance, nose and palette, rated out of 100 with an average of the six scores taken.
General Manager of Fisher Fine Wines, Daryl Fisher commented “Red Berries, slightly earthy on the palate … some nice raspberry notes.
Completing the Riunite range is a lightly sparkling Moscato, and elegant prosecco. A sweet and well-balanced wine, Riunite Lambrusco can be enjoyed anytime and offers easy drinking.
Ms Kollaras commented; “With a plethora of activity planned for Riunite over the next calendar year, we were truly excited to see Riunite being recognized once again. This is an excellent way to begin 2018, and no doubt sets precedence for the year that awaits! I sincerely thank those who love Riunite just as much as we do, for their ongoing support.”
