Royal Win for Kollaras at Queensland Wine Show


It was a well-deserved win for Kollaras & Co, when three brands within an extensive product portfolio were awarded medals at the Royal Queensland Food & Wine Show held recently.

St Augustus Sauvignon Blanc and Uppercut Riesling both picked up silver medals, while Two Truths Rosé received a bronze medal.

This brings the Kollaras medal tally for the year to a mammoth 20, with plenty more shows to come, as The Royal Queensland Show is the first to be held in a capital city for 2019.

The Royal Queensland Wine Show is one of Australia’s most prestigious wine competitions, having been established nearly 150 years ago. Each year, thousands of winemakers enter the competition that is dedicated to unearthing and celebrating Australia’s finest winemakers.

Silver medal winner, St Augustus Sauvignon Blanc, is no stranger to accolades with the brand amassing a swag of medals at wine competitions held throughout 2018. It hails from the Adelaide Hills wine region and offers intense tropical and herbal notes with edgy and vibrant summer fruits on the palate.

Uppercut Riesling which also picked up a silver medal, was launched only a few short months ago and is already impressing industry experts. Produced in South Australia’s Riesling heartland, Clare Valley, the varietal also earned high praise from Wine Orbit’s Sam Kim, a stalwart of the wine world with over 30 years’ experience. Uppercut Riesling offers bright, fragrant aromas of freshly squeezed lime juice and lemongrass with bursts of tangy fruits on the palate.

Completing the medal-winning trio is the Two Truths Rosé.  The Two Truths brand quickly carved a name for itself, being awarded New Wine Product of the Year at the prestigious 2018 Liquor Stores Association Awards. The Rosé is best described as ‘a sensory delight with gentle pink hues and delicate red fruits that tantalise the tastebuds.’

Kollaras Marketing Manager, Georgia Kollaras described the win as nothing short of rewarding. “Our team works extremely hard to bring customers the best possible products – high quality, exceptionally priced products, and it’s recognition such as this that helps to reinforce our strategy is in line with customer demand.”
