The London International Wine Challenge (IWC) is accepted as the world’s finest and most meticulously judged wine competition. It assesses every wine blind and judges each for its faithfulness to style, region, and vintage. Throughout the judging processes, each medal-winning wine is tasted on three separate occasions by at least 10 different judges, proof that it is one of the most difficult shows to win.
The 2016 Domaine Naturaliste Artus Chardonnay, was awarded the Trophy for the best West Australian Chardonnay, while its brother, the 2015 Domaine Naturaliste Morus Cabernet Sauvignon was awarded Trophy for best Margaret River Cabernet.
Domaine Naturaliste Winemaker, Bruce Dukes said “I am incredibly proud that our Margaret River wines can earn respect on the global stage. I have immense faith and belief in Margaret River as being one of the great wine growing regions of the world. Our unique Gin Gin clone of Chardonnay, and our expressions of Cabernet Sauvignon have appeal to the global market. The overriding characters of Margaret River fruit are generous perfumes, fruit freshness and texture.
