Australia takes top spot at the 2021 London Wine Competition.

At the recently held London Wine Competition 2021, Australian winemaker Jo Irvine won the " Best Wine of the Year " Award for her 2015 Anubis Cabernet Sauvignon. The Wine was described as as being crafted to enhance the rich, dark cherry and cassis fruit from a single vineyard in South Australia’s Barossa Valley, with 40% new French oak, resulting in plush and juicy flavours, and drew an elegant, soft, velvety tannin finish. Having an extended aging period in the bottle before release integrated the unique characters of this premium Cabernet over time. Thus producing a complex wine that rewards the care and patience invested in creating it.

Jo Irvine followed her father, James Irvine who is known as the ‘Master Merlot Maker’, around his winery from the tender age of seven, undertaking the ritual tasting of ferments and wine blending. She now produces quality, award-winning wines in her own right.

Her 2015 Anubis Cabernet Sauvignon top scored with 96 points to beat other wines from Australia and countries such as Italy, Spain, France, Portugal, United States and Moldova.
