For the second time in three years, Deep Woods Estate Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon has been awarded the prestigious Max Schubert Trophy for Most Outstanding Red Wine of Show at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show.
As one of the most prestigious accolades in the Australian Wine Industry, Chief Winemaker Julian Langworthy said that he was extremely pleased and humbled by the award for the 2014 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon, especially after having won the same award for the 2012 vintage of the same wine.
Royal Adelaide Wine Show Committee Chair Andrew Hardy has been vocal in expressing the prestigious nature of the award of late. "While a number of esteemed awards and trophies are handed out at the Royal Adelaide Wine Show in September each year, it’s the Max Schubert Trophy that is the true centrepiece of the event,” Mr Hardy said.
“Honouring the father of Australian table wine and the creator of Penfolds Grange, it’s become the most coveted trophy among Australian winemakers in recent years.”
“Melbourne will of course try to claim it but we know here in South Australia that as a Great Wine Capital of the World we are in the best position to judge the best red wine in the country,” Andrew joked.
