Original Press Release:

May 31 -- Treasury Wine Estates Americas Co issued the following news release:

TWE is absolutely thrilled to have taken home two awards from last night’s prestigious National Wine Show of Australia for our beautiful Devil’s Lair wines: our Devil’s Lair 2022 Margaret River Cabernet Sauvignon won ‘Best Cabernet Sauvignon’ and the coveted James Halliday trophy for ‘Best Red Wine of Show’.

Picking up the trophies during the Presentation Dinner at the National Press Club in Canberra last night in front of an audience including Prime Minister of Australia Anthony Albanese and Federal Minister for Trade and Tourism, Senator Don Farrell , TWE’s Mick Hage said “It’s an incredible honour to be recognised by Australia’s wine community. This outstanding wine is a testament to the hard work of all our winemakers, vineyard and winery teams, and the extended Supply division, who work hand in hand every vintage to produce the very best – from the vineyard and into the glass of wine lovers all over the country.”

Like every bottle of wine, it’s a team effort – and we raise a glass to Senior Winemaker Travis Clydesdale , Viticulturalist Simon Robertson, and Winemakers Simon Bromilow and Dominic Coulter . The wine award’s rigorous qualification criteria makes this one of the most comprehensive wine assessment processes in the world.

National Wine Show of Australia chair of judges Matt Harrop said “The Devil’s Lair has everything you could want in a young cabernet – a lot of flavour, lovely colour, perfect aromatics. If you were going to say, ‘here’s an example of how good Australian cabernet can be’, you don’t need to go further than this wine.”

We want to give a big thank you to the National Wine Show Organising Committee for highlighting the best in Australian wine since 1975. We're also grateful to the Advisory Panel , including James Halliday and four of the country’s top winemakers, as well as the judges and stewards who volunteer their time to keep everything running smoothly during the two-week show.

Congratulations to all this year’s winners, and cheers to Australian wine!
