Taylors Wines has just knocked it out of the park at the San Diego International Wine & Spirits Challenge 2024.
They scooped up the “Winery of the Year – Import” title, proving they’re not just a big deal back home in Australia, but they’re also making waves internationally.
Their St. Andrew’s Shiraz 2020 was the star of the show, grabbing trophies for both “Wine of the Year – Import” and “Best Shiraz.” This isn’t new territory for Taylors; they’ve clinched the “Best Shiraz” prize 6 times in the last 7 years, showing they’ve got this Shiraz-making business down to an art.
Rewind to last year, and Taylors was already turning heads by scoring a perfect 100 for their Taylors Heritage Label Shiraz 2022 at the VINUS International Wine & Spirits Competition. They were the first to win the top trophy two years in a row, adding to their collection with a bunch of Double Gold and Gold medals too.
Considering the Australian wine industry has had its fair share of hurdles lately, like a dip in exports and some hefty tariffs from China, Taylors’ success is a pretty big deal. It shows they’re not just surviving; they’re thriving, thanks to their knack for creating wines that get people talking (and drinking).
What’s Taylors’ secret? Maybe it’s their commitment to quality, or perhaps it’s their passion for showcasing what Clare Valley has to offer. Either way, they’re not just making wine; they’re making a statement – and the world is paying attention.
So, here’s to Taylors Wines, not only for winning big but for consistently proving that great wine can come from anywhere, even a little spot in South Australia.
