One of Australia, and arguably the world,’s most expensive wines, has a new star.
The first Australian-made wine to be named the Best Wine in Australia in a decade, Riedel, is one of the best-selling wines in Australia, with a market worth more than $400 million.
Riedel is a blend of riesling, white wine, cabernet and red grape juice, made from rieslings grown in the south of France, the United Kingdom and Spain.
Riella, a French cognac-style wine, has been on the Australian wine market for more than a decade and has a retail value of more than AU$50 million.
The wine’s popularity is due to the wines strong riesly flavours, which are combined with a smooth finish.
In 2016, Riesling won the Australian Wine Award for the first time in seven years.
In addition to winning the prestigious award, Riella won the prestigious Australian Wine of the Year in 2014.
The win was one of five for Riedels win at the prestigious World Wine Awards.
It also led to the establishment of the Riedeln Wine and Spirits Competition, which will be held this week.
“It was a very special win for the Riesler family,” said Australian wine ambassador Michael Koster.
“The Riedeltels have been pioneers in the wine industry for decades, and this is a great achievement for the wine community.”
This win was the first of many, and we’re thrilled it’s been chosen by the prestigious Wine of Australia.
