Collecting awards, trophies and accolades is certainly not why the crew at Naked Run do what they do, but the reality is people read them, people trust in them and people use them as guides to try new things.
Naked Run’s ‘The First’ Riesling in particular has gained much recognition, respect and admiration across the circuit of Australian wine shows and reviews. Most recently collecting the White Wine of Provenance Trophy at the Adelaide Wine Show with the 2016, 2009 and 2006 vintages. It has also been awarded with Best Riesling Trophy and Gold Medal at the Australian Boutique Wine Show, Best Single Vineyard White Wine and Gold Medal at the National Wine Show and been donned with 97 & 95 Halliday points.
Whilst the Naked Run Clare Rieslings appear to lead the pack the red wines in the portfolio are not shy of an award or two themselves. The BWC Shiraz has won a trophy for the Best Young Dry Red Shiraz Wine of Show at the Barossa Wine Show and Gold Medals at the Wine Wise Wine Show and the Australian Small Winemakers awards to name a few. The Aldo Grenache Shiraz is a trophy winner at the Barossa Wine Show, and the Hill 5 Shiraz Cabernet Sauvignon many medals around its neck too.
Most importantly though, the Naked Run crew want people to drink the wine, make their own decisions and enjoy what they are so proud to share.
