Royal Easter Show 2014 Gold Medal

The annual Easter Show Wine Awards is the country's oldest wine competition. It is also still one of the most prestigious, awarding the highest level of achievement in New Zealand winemaking, reflecting the huge advances in quality and style in our wine.
We are delighted to hear that our Prestige Collection Methode Traditionelle NV has won a Gold Medal.

Gold at the Spiegelau Wine Awards

We are delighted to say that our Late Harvest Gewurztraminer has been awarded another gold medal.  This time at the prestigious Spiegelau Wine Awards held in Blenheim (South Island New Zealand).  Our 2012 Sauvignon Blanc also picked up a silver medal which is excellent news.

The judges were led by Mike DeGaris and New Zealand wine reviewer Raymond Chan. The judges were served tasting "flights" of up to 40 wines in one hit to sample and mark out of 20.

More than 1000 wines were entered this year, on par with last year's figures.

19. 2011 Osawa Late Harvest Gewurztraminer,
$28 (375ml).
Aromatic, lusciously sweet and
altogether rather decadent, you’ll be pleased
to have a few bottles of dessert wine tucked
away when they’re as smart as this. Very well
balanced with a lively citrus lift on the finish.
