McGuigan Wines has won a sweep of top accolades at the prestigious Decanter Asia Wine Awards, announced today.

The McGuigan Personal Reserve Shiraz 2017 was named Best in Show, picking up a gold medal alongside its stablemate, McGuigan Bin 9000 Semillon 2014. In addition, McGuigan won 5 silver medals and 9 bronze.
The results crown an outstanding performance for the brand in the show arena this month, which has also seen it win a raft of awards at prominent domestic competitions.

This month, McGuigan was named Semillon Winery of the Year at the Melbourne International Wine Competition, winning a double gold for its McGuigan Shortlist Semillon 2014 and McGuigan Personal Reserve Shiraz 2017. The accolades continued at the Riverina Winemakers Association Show, where McGuigan won two trophies for its McGuigan Shortlist Semillon 2014 as well as for Most Successful Exhibitor.

McGuigan Wines Chief Winemaker, Neil McGuigan, said: “It is an amazing result to have one of our Hunter Valley red wines take out a major accolade on the global stage at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards. The judges were obviously looking for power but also elegance, which is exactly what Hunter Valley Shiraz does so well. We are immensely proud of our recent successes at home too, with our Semillons also continuing to shine.”
