Entries are now open
for The Great Australian Red 2018

The Great Australian Red is a competition for all Australian cabernet shiraz and shiraz cabernet blends.

Great work you are doing, and carry on this great work. Push this idea, because I still think in my heart that when you get the best of cabernet and the best of shiraz – not the second, third or fourth cab off the rank – you can blend beautifully. This competition is certainly something that I am very supportive of.

– Len Evans AO OBE




The Great Australian Red was established in 2006
by wine writers Matthew Jukes and Tyson Stelzer.
