Gartelmann Shiraz named Red Wine of Show
Gartelmann Wines has continued its success at the Orange Wine Show, being awarded the Trophy for Red Wine of the Show and Trophy for the Best Shiraz for its 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz.
The 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz is one of Jorg and Jan Gartelmann’s flagship wines, and testament to their decision to source fruit from the cool climate region of Orange.
We have been excited by the quality of fruit coming from our Orange region growers. Our 2014 Gartelmann ‘Joey’ Merlot was awarded at the previous Orange Wine Show, and this is gave us confidence to broaden our range of Orange wines.
The Gartelmann range now comprises three Shiraz including a Hunter Valley Shiraz, Mudgee and the awarding winning Orange Region Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz.
We have three completely different styles of Shiraz, all from within the NSW region. This shows the diversity of regions, from the warmer Mediterranean influenced Hunter Region through a warmer, earthier Mudgee style to the heights of Orange where the wines are spicier and more elegant.
The Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz is now being made from the Orange Wine Region, with plans in place for a new Gartelmann ‘Wilhelm’ Shiraz from renowned older vines of the Hunter Valley.
The 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz will be cellared and general release is approx. September 2017.
