Château Tanunda was awarded a total of 22 medals at the 2018 China Wine and Spirits Awards.

A considerable achievement, receiving 12 Gold Medals, 5 Silver and 5 Bronze medals from the largest and most prestigious wine & spirits competition in China.

“We are thrilled that our wines have been recognised for their exemplary quality by the most important group of distributors, buyers and sommeliers in China and Hong Kong.” said Managing Director Michelle Geber.

“The judges completely understand the unique tastes of Chinese consumers as well as being directly responsible for the purchase of more than 90 million bottles a year! We are honoured that our wines have been recognised and endorsed by these key decision makers in China.

I’m especially pleased for the winemaking team that our new release 2017 Winemaker Barossa Shiraz and 2017 Winemaker Barossa Old Vines Shiraz Cabernet received gold medals. Both wines have been developed specifically for the Chinese market and this confirms we are completely in line with the market.”
