STOP PRESS! Moppity Vineyards has won the 2014 Visy Great Australian Shiraz Challenge Trophy with its 2013 Reserve Shiraz. See full results

Now in its 20th year, the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge has become one of Australia's most prestigious wine awards.

The Challenge is a unique opportunity for Australia's premier red winemakers to showcase their Shiraz and to reinforce the reputation of the variety as a national and international wine icon.

The 2014 Challenge continues the spectacular evolution of the event over the last 19 years; wines entered are classed and tasted based on climate and regional points of difference, this ensures all entries are judged fairly and objectively.

I commend the Visy Great Australian Shiraz Challenge to you as one of Australia's most prestigious and highly respected wine awards. The event has also played an important role in creating considerable consumer awareness in this iconic Australian grape variety. I encourage you to take up the challenge and enter one or more of your Shiraz in this year's event.

Alister Purbrick, Chairman, Great Australian Shiraz Challenge
