2022 Il Liris Chardonnay in the Spotlight…. Again

The latest vintage of our beloved Il Liris Chardonnay has been decorated with another honour. Taking home GOLD at the international Decanter World Wine Awards, we are elated and humbled by the award bestowed on our hallmark white. 

Scoring 95 points the judges said:

"Playful tree fruit and savoury green herb aromatics over a glossy, rounded texture and nurturing acidity. Flinty and elegant with a citrus bite on the long finish."

A magnificent celebration of our Great Southern region and our winery, we are simply over the moon that our hand-picked 2022 Il Liris Chardonnay is being recognised on the global stage. Vintage-after-vintage it is the celebrated wine here at the Estate, and this calibre of award goes to show where it stands among the wines of the world. 

Now in its 21st year, the Decanter World Wine Awards are firmly established as the world’s largest and most influential wine competition. 

Respected globally for its rigorous judging process and world-class judges, results are trusted internationally by both trade and consumers.

This year more than 18,000 entries (from 57 countries) were meticulously tasted by expert judges, which comprised of nearly 250 world-leading experts from 33 countries including 61 Masters of Wine and 20 Master Sommeliers.
