Best Australian Sparkling!

Best Australian Sparkling!

The National Champion Trophy for Best Australian Sparkling Wine was awarded to the Swift 2011 Blanc de Blancs at the 2022 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships held in London.

The championships are deemed to be the world’s most respected, comprehensive and rigorous sparkling wine competition. Nearly 1000 sparkling wines were judged over 11 days with 147 Gold & 249 Silver medals awarded to 21 countries in this year’s competition.

The awards dinner for the World Championships were held in London and announced early Friday morning (AEST). The Swift 2011 Blanc de Blancs was also awarded Best in Class for Australian Blanc de Blancs. On top of that, all five Swift Sparkling wines entered received a medal. The Swift 2017 Blanc de Noirs, Swift NV Cuvée, Swift NV Rosé and Swift 2014 Vintage were all awarded silver medals.

For the first time Australia took third place on the medal leader board behind France and Italy. This year saw the highest number and most medals ever awarded to Australian sparklings so to be crowned Best Australian Sparkling in such good and large company is great acknowledgement.

The Swift 2011 Blanc de Blancs was also recently crowned Best Sparkling in NSW at the NSW Wine awards. It’s the fifth consecutive year that a Swift Sparkling has received this accolade – a first in the history of the wine show.

A big congratulations to our winemaker Drew Tuckwell for his tireless commitment to crafting world class traditional method sparkling wines.
