2024 Decanter World Wine Awards

Our run of success in the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards has continued with 2020 Dawson James Chardonnay receiving a Platinum award, one of only 117 Platinum awards in an international wine show that attracted 18,143 entries

Only three Australian Chardonnays scored 97 points required for a Platinum award and Dawson James was the highest scoring Tasmanian Chardonnay

The judges’ comments;

Oozing magnificence with its wonderful levels of honeyed fruit, super smart minerals and vibrant spice which cascade over the sleek simmering acidity and luxuriously buttery consistency. Seriously age-worthy with a morerish tang of texture on the impeccable finish


Our grapes are grown on the Meadowbank vineyard, approximately 60 kms northwest of Hobart. Its rugged topography is bounded by the fast flowing, pristine waters of the Derwent River. These grapes are used to create our unique Chardonnay and Pinot Noir single vineyard wines.
