AN Australian stable has again been named among the winners at a prestigious international wine-making competition.
During a ceremony in London on Tuesday night Neil McGuigan was named “world’s best white wine maker” by judges of the International Wine Challenge, edging out two French labels for the trophy.
“It is wonderful for the Australian wine industry to win this award,” Mr McGuigan said.
“This award demonstrates that Australian wine remains world-class, and is a force to be reckoned (with).”
A collection of McGuigan chardonnay, riesling and semillon took out five gold medals during the competition, delivering the top white wine prize to the Australian producer.
