Wild Witch Shiraz by Kellermeister Crowned Wine of the year

02/05/2019

Kellermeister's Wild Witch grabbed four titles at the London Wine Competition 2019.

Barossa winery Kellermeister’s crown jewel Shiraz, Wild Witch, swooped the title of Wine of the Year, Best in Show by Country (Australia), Best in Show by Varietal and Best in Show by Quality at the London Wine Competition 2019.

Wild Witch Shiraz is said to be the most magical Shiraz of the Barossa Vintage. The competition held by Beverage Trade Network on March 21-22 invited a panel of wine experts to judge an array of wines entered. The wines are judged on the basis of three major aspects, namely, Quality, Packaging, and Value.

Kellermeister is a family owned winery based at Lyndoch in Barossa Valley, Australia, owned and operated by the Pearce family. It was originally founded by Ralph Jones in 1976 and was named in honour of his German mother, who he lost as a young boy. He recalled her maiden name being “Keller”, and thus the birth of Kellermeister Winery.

Mark Pearce, winemaker/owner has established Kellermeister’s name across the Barossa Valley, particularly around the winery’s Shiraz and Grenache-based wines. With Mark and his family’s passion towards the winery, Kellermeister’s wines have achieved significant awards over the years. Its distinction at the London Wine Competition adds to a series of recent wins from other competitions as well.
