We would like to thank Decanter as well as our long term partner in Asia, Watsons Wines, who have already greatly assisted in developing and promoting our wines in these markets.
We have always sought to bring the most out of its fruit's natural gifts through the winemaking process, with minimal intervention. This philosophy has led to wines of unmistakable quality, recognised as such with accolades, both at home and abroad.
Winemaking truly begins in the vineyard and we have abundant water catchments, beautiful undulating landscapes, naturally biodiverse bushland and, most importantly, soil that is exceptionally well-suited to premium viticultural use. Longstanding biological sustainable farming practises have shaped our properties, contributing to the health of the vineyards and the quality of the fruit which continues to surpass itself.
Now in its 4th year, the Decanter Asia Wine Awards (DAWA) is Asia's leading and most trusted wine competition. Judged by Asia's top wine experts, the DAWA is trusted for its rigorous judging process. The judges taste wines individually, with knowledge of their region and style. They then compare notes and reach a consensus on each wine’s medal. Wines awarded a Gold or Silver medal are retasted by one of the Vice-Chairs for his or her confirmation.
All the Gold medal-winning wines within each region are divided into categories according to style or grape variety. These wines are then retasted by Vice-Chairs who award a Regional Trophy to the best wine in each category. A Regional Trophy will only be awarded if the panel believes a wine’s quality merits such an award.
All Regional Trophy winners are then split into categories according to grape variety or style. The top wines from each region are then pitted against each other to win the DAWA's ultimate accolades: The International Trophies. These are decided in a separate tasting judged by our Chairman, Steven Spurrier, and our Vice-Chairs, Gerard Basset OBE MS MW, Andrew Jefford, Michael Hill-Smith MW, Shinya Tasaki, Li Demei and Ch'ng Poh Tiong.
