The 2023 Official Royal Adelaide Wine Show Dozen - Mixed

For the 15th consecutive year, winedirect.com.au has had the honour of being asked to curate the Official Royal Adelaide Wine Show Dozen. This is unequivocally the best to date.


It contains the winners of the following trophies:


1: Most Outstanding Red Wine in Show

2: Best Shiraz in Show

3: Best Shiraz 2020 Vintage and Older

4: Best Shiraz 2021 Vintage and Younger

5: Best Grenache in Show

6: Best Other Varietal Red in Show

7: Best Dry White Blend in Show

8: Best Sauvignon Blanc in Show


Yep, for the first time ever, we’ve managed to secure 8 trophy winners. The quality of each wine is utterly exceptional. Incredibly, 10 of the 12 wines in this dozen were not just gold medal winners, but Top Gold winners, pointed equal top of their class in the initial judging. These wines have done well elsewhere too. The Majella Cab is Winestate’s Cabernet of the year and has won 4 trophies to date. The Redbrook Shiraz has picked up 9 gold medals in other wine shows. We suspect this pack will sell fast. Grab one while you can.

    Wines In This Pack
    McLaren Vale, SA
    Gold Medal, 95pts Sam Kim, 95pts Kim Brebach, 92pts James Halliday
    Durif is the genetic offspring of Shiraz and Pelourisin. It’s rare and we love it here at WD. It is drought tolerant and retains acidity and bright fruit even when very ripe. Handled well it makes fruit-dense yet lively wines with an inky core and a strong spine of acidity. Winemakers use phrases like ‘Shiraz on steroids' and ‘akin to drinking fountain pen ink’ to describe it. This Curtis edition is a little more elegant than most and packs plums, blackberries, black cherries, black olive, vanilla, cedar, and more into a thyme spritzed package which is gorgeously sumptuous.
    Clare Valley, SA
    Gold, Top Gold and Trophy for best Grenache in Show Royal Adelaide Wine Show
    Winner of Gold and Top Gold at the Adelaide Show and subsequently awarded the Trophy for best Grenache in show. An exceptional, medium bodied, old vine offering matured for 15 month in old oak, offering wonderful aromatics. Soft fruit is made mouthwatering thanks to excellent acidity.
