Among the prestigious brands entered in the competition, a $6 wine sold through Coles supermarkets wowed the judges in a blind taste test, being one of the 16 recipients of a “double gold” medal.
“We’ve worked really hard with our winemaking suppliers for years to create a portfolio of amazing quality wines that over-deliver for our customers,” Bob Paulinski, head of wine sourcing at Coles, told The Australian.
“A win like this shows that our exclusive wine brands can stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the best in the market, and is a testament to the incredible work our suppliers do in making these wines.”
