THE GREAT AUSTRALIAN SHIRAZ CHALLENGE TURNS 21 AND CELEBRATES WITH A NEW NAMING RIGHTS SPONSOR: GRAPHIX LABELS AND PACKAGING

Now in its 21st year, the Great Australian Shiraz Challenge has become Australia’s most pre-eminent, prestigious and valuable single class wine competition and this year celebrates its 21st anniversary with a new naming rights sponsor and long term supporter of the event, Graphix Labels and Packaging.

The Challenge is a unique opportunity for Australia's premier red winemakers to showcase their Shiraz, benchmark winemaking and regional points of differences and assist with reinforcing the reputation of the variety as a national and international wine icon.

The 2015 Challenge continues the spectacular evolution of the event over the last 20 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 Graphix Labels and Packaging 2015 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."
