Every year, the World Ranking of Wines & Spirits (WRW&S) report analyses global wine competitions to determine the top-ranking wines and wineries of the year. This year the report evaluated an incredible 700,000 wines and 50,000 producers.
The world’s most awarded winery was named as Australian producer Taylors Wines, and their 2014 Jaraman Shiraz was also named the most awarded wine of the year. In fact, an unprecedented 12 wines by Taylors ranked in the Top 100 Wines of the Year.
“We are incredibly proud to be the world’s most awarded winery with the world’s most awarded wine,” says Mitchell Taylor, third-generation Taylor family member and Managing Director of Taylors Wines. “Since the beginning we’ve sought to make wines that can take on the best in the world. We see wine competitions as an important way to benchmark ourselves. It’s an exciting result for our family, our winemaking team, the Clare Valley wine region and Australian wine as an industry.”
In the report, Taylors Wines’ chardonnay, merlot and shiraz were also recognised as the most awarded wines in their categories – particularly Taylors Wines shiraz, which took the top four slots in the Top 5 Shiraz of 2017 category.
