A collaboration between glass packaging manufacturers O-I Australia and winemakers Taylors Wines has taken out the Best Wine Bottle Award at the 2012 Australian Wine Industry Design Competition. The 2010 Taylors Winemaker’s Project Grenache Shiraz Mataro (GSM) was declared the nation’s best bottle and label design at the awards.

O-I manufactured the bottle at its Adelaide plant and the 360° screen printing was done by O-I’s Applied Ceramic Label (ACL) plant at St Mary’s in Sydney.

The judges called the bottle “beautifully designed, flawlessly printed and a clever extension of the iconic Taylors brand. The screen printing is particularly impressive, as is the little brochure that swings from the well-executed screw cap. The winery’s insignia seahorses sit quietly in the mix. Quality is all the way. A bottle you simply have to pick up and feel and turn and touch and admire. Seriously great work!”

“We are often recognised for our wine quality, but these accolades highlight that these wines are the complete package,” said Taylors Wines Managing Director Mitchell Taylor. “To have the Taylor’s Winemaker’s Project GSM recognised as the best of the best in Australia is a true compliment.”
