The Cat Amongst the Pigeons Fat Cat Barossa Shiraz 2018 was awarded three trophies at the Barossa Wine Show last night, including the most coveted prize of Most Outstanding Barossa Wine.

The wine was named Most Outstanding Barossa Wine – Premium Classes, Best Shiraz and Most Outstanding Barossa Red Table Wine – Premium Classes during a live stream of the Barossa Wine Show.

“The Barossa is the home of Shiraz in Australia, so to win any award for a Shiraz from the regional Barossa Wine Show is an incredible honour,” winemaker Richard Quodling said. 

“A wine is not only an expression of grapes and terroir by a winemaker. It takes an entire team to make a great wine, from viticulturalists, growers and lab technicians to cellar hands and packaging teams – so we are all excited and will be celebrating this weekend.”

When Chair of Judges Nick Ryan announced that the Cat Amongst the Pigeons Fat Cat Barossa Shiraz 2018 had been awarded wine of the show, he described it as ‘utterly delicious’. 

“[This wine is] plush, fragrant, deeply flavoured, utterly delicious, incredible drinkable. A fantastic result for the people’s wine,” he said.

The Cat Among the Pigeons Fat Cat Grenache 2019 was also awarded a gold medal in the award show. 

The annual Barossa Wine Show, first held in 1977, is seen as a showpiece of the region’s very best wines.

Led by Chair of Judges and wine writer Nick Ryan, the judging panel tasted their way through over 400 Barossa wines over three days to award the stand-outs in quality and regional expression.

The Cat Amongst the Pigeons Fat Cat Barossa Shiraz 2018 is available exclusively through selected BWS (where it is currently on special for $20) and Dan Murphy’s stores.
