The wine, in the ‘Old World Red Under €15’ category, is distributed by Liberty Wines.

The White Wine of the Year was Valmiñor Albariño from Mackenway Distributors which won the ‘Old World White Wine Under €20’ category.

NOffLA awarded Gold, Silver and Bronze Star Awards to a total of 45 wines at the ceremony which took place at the Morrison Hotel recently. Now in its 16th year, the winners were chosen by NOffLA wine experts and independent wine writers. Each of the winning wines will be available to consumers all over Ireland.

“Each year this event allows us to celebrate the best wines available at a range of price points sold by our highly-trained members around the country,” said NOffLA Chairman Gary O’Donovan, speaking at the awards.

“Each of the wines are chosen for their superior quality across a broad range of styles and price points by experts in the field. This rigorous process has become a recognised symbol of quality among consumers and a key offering for members.”

Gary O’Donovan reminded the retailers and suppliers attending the awards that excise rates on wine here were the highest in Europe and he encouraged importers to highlight this fact to their exporting/producing partners.

In excess of 600 wines were submitted to The Irish Wine Show Star Award adjudication panel of NOffLA judges and independent wine writers.  Points were awarded on the basis of appearance, aroma, taste and value-for-money criteria. The winners were selected as the best wines from key suppliers across a number of price categories.

Each of the winning wines will be sold in NOffLA member outlets of which there are more than 315 nationwide. The chosen wines will be recognisable by distinctive Award symbols on each bottle. In the pre-Christmas period, NOffLA members will promote the Star Awards 2016-2017 Collection as ideal Christmas gifts, offering consumers a diverse range of high quality products.
