Decanter Says Our Reserve Shiraz Is One Of The Ten Best In The World

Decanter World Wine Awards in London has named Nardone Baker The Wara Manta Reserve Shiraz in the Top Ten Shiraz in the world, priced above £10 ($AU25).

At this year’s awards, The Wara Manta Reserve Shiraz 2002 won Gold, following on from last year’s success at the London International Wine Competition where it won Silver.

Managing Director, Mr Frank Nardone, is pictured, left, with Nardone Baker's European Manager Marketing, Ms Victoria Lewis, at the London International Wine Fair, where our wine was very popular with trade representatives.

“We are in great company,” says Mr Frank Nardone, in relation to the Top Ten ranking. “Our wines now share the international stage with the likes of other great Australian producers such as Yalumba and Peter Lehmann.”

Against more than 5,500 entries from France, Italy, Spain, USA, South Africa, New Zealand, Germany, etc, the Decanter judges were impressed by The Wara Manta’s oak/fruit balance with the oak in subtle ascendancy.

Mr Nardone attributes the continuing success of The Wara Manta to the skill of our winemaker, Brian Light, former Australasian Winemaker of the Year.

“Brian’s experience has helped us create a wine label that is now trusted worldwide for quality and consistency,” said Mr Nardone.

“I meet regularly with retailers and restaurateurs around the world, and the feedback I get is that they appreciate the consistency of our product each vintage."

"Nardone Baker" Is In The Air
Ronald McDonald House has enjoyed an injection of more than $90,000 after a successful Charity Ball at the Adelaide Entertainment Centre, attracting Adelaide's A-list, supporters and volunteers.

The 500-strong crowd was entertained on stage by Australian and International Pop Icon, John Paul Young, who gave an energetic rendition of his classic hit, "Love Is In The Air".

At their tables, the revellers enjoyed the fruits of Australian and International Wine Icon, Nardone Baker Wines, which was the exclusive drink of choice for the ball.

Our Chardonnay, Cabernet Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Brut Cuvee and Sparkling Shiraz all starred in their own right and we have heard that our range helped put bidders into a generous frame of mind for the silent auction!

It is the second consecutive year, Nardone Baker has been a Gold Sponsor and exclusive supplier of wine for the Ronald McDonald Ball and is our way to assist families in need.

The fact that it is also great fun, is just a bonus!
