A red wine produced at Mount Cole near Ararat has captured the attention of the Chinese market after winning gold medals at one of the biggest international wine competitions in Asia.
The Fenix Rising Reserve Shiraz 2010 from Dr Graeme Bertuch’s Mount Cole Wineworks impressed judges at the China Wine and Spirits Awards Best Value 2013, the only awards in the world judged specifically for the Chinese market.
Judges, including key Chinese wine importers, distributors, wholesalers, restaurant group owners and sommeliers or wine stewards based in China, assed 3300 entries from 25 countries.
Dr Bertuch’s shiraz was one of 219 gold medals won by Australian producers who won the overall medal tally from France, 97.
Dr Bertuch, an Ararat district general practitioner who has also been in the wine industry for several years with a cellar door at Buangor, said the success was timely considering Mount Cole Wineworks’ push into the Chinese market.
