The producers of four South Australian wines have been named best in their variety at London’s International Wine Challenge (IWC).

Boasting more than 9,000 entries from 40 different countries and more than 400 judges, the IWC has cemented its place as the largest blind wine tasting competition in the world.

Clare Valley winemaker, Tim Adams Wines, was awarded the International Semillon trophy for its 2007 vintage.

Majella Wines, also from the Clare Valley, took home the International Cabernet Sauvignon trophy for its Majella Cabernet Sauvignon 2005.

A third Clare Valley winemaker, Kilikanoon, was awarded the International Shiraz Trophy for its 2005 Oracle Shiraz, while the International Viognier Trophy went to Yalumba for its 2007 Virgilius, produced in Eden Valley.

Wirra Wirra, which was last year crowned IWC Red Winemaker of the Year, was awarded the McLaren Vale Red Trophy for its 2006 RSW Shiraz.
