For the second consecutive year, the 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz has received the Trophy for Best Red Wine of the Show at the 2017 Orange Region Wine Show.

The awards were announced yesterday with Chairman of Judges, Nick Bulleid MW, announcing, “Shiraz has established itself as clearly the best red wine for the region.”

The 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz, one of the winery’s flagship wines, was also awarded a Gold Medal and the Trophy for the Best Shiraz of the Show.

“Our 2015 Gartelmann ‘Diedrich’ Shiraz won this award at last year’s Orange Wine Show,” said owner and vigneron Jorg Gartelmann. “It’s rare that a wine is awarded the same trophy in consecutive shows, especially with different judges.

"It's testament to the commitment of our team, including our growers and winemaker. Our wines from Orange, including this Shiraz, along with our Chardonnay and Pinot Gris, continue to improve as we build experience in the region.”

Gartelmann Wines has been working with a number of Orange Region grape growers over the past few years. Whilst based in the Hunter Valley, Jorg and Jan Gartelmann have expanded their portfolio of wines, sourcing the best varieties from regions within the Central Ranges to complement their Hunter Valley wines.
