2015 Peel Estate Great Shiraz Tasting

Back to NEWS

The Peel Estate Great Shiraz Tasting is held annually in September at Peel Estate Wines in WA.  2015 marked the 24th year of this event and gives consumers a fantastic opportunity to taste and compare a great selection of Shiraz from Australia, France and New Zealand.

Typically around 110 shiraz lovers taste 20 six year old wines and are then asked to vote on their top 3 before the labels are revealed. Votes are then collated and the results speak for themselves!

We were delighted to hear that Laughing Jack was represented in the top 20 and simply elated to hear that our 2009 Moppa Block Shiraz came in a close second to none other than the 2009 Grange.  An amazing outcome that’s for sure!

Two of the reasons we love this event is firstly the tasting is done blind = non bias results and secondly it’s judged by the people who matter most – consumers!  At Laughing Jack we strive to make consumer friendly wines so great results in People’s Choice tastings are results worth celebrating!

Because the customer is always right!!

Wine is heat sensitive. During the warmer months we reserve the right to hold orders in instances of extreme heat, until there is a clear path of non-extreme temperatures between us and you. All orders are packed and stored safely in our cellar awaiting better conditions to send the wine when it can be more safely dispatched to you.

Alternatively, you may request immediate dispatch despite the heat (at your risk) by choosing ‘Yes’.
