South Australia’s Wrattonbully wine region is celebrating unprecedented success at the Limestone Coast Wine Show, collecting three major trophies and 10 gold medals at last night’s presentation dinner. The family-owned Malone Wines won back-to-back trophies in the Museum Class, with the 2006 Malone Shiraz winning the Ewen Fergusson McBain Trophy for ‘Best Museum Wine’. The Wrattonbully wine region also laid claim to the ‘Best Sparkling or Sweet Wine’ Trophy, which went to the 2012 Yalumba FSW8B Wrattonbully Botrytis Viognier, and the ‘Best Other Single Red Variety’ Trophy, which was won by the 2012 Pepper Tree Wines ’14 Shores’ Single Vineyard Wrattonbully Merlot.

During the red wine boom of the mid nineties, Australia's large winemakers began broad-acre vine plantings at Wrattonbully, adjoining Coonawarra's north-eastern boundary. Ten years later, the area contributed large volumes of high quality fruit for many popular wine brands. But nobody new for sure how high fruit quality might go in future. And ten years on, we know quality can be about as good as it gets in Australia. The area now contributes to some of our greatest wines, but also produces lovely, elegant reds.
