WINE SHOW 2014

Now into its tenth year, the New Zealand International Wine Show is firmly established as the largest wine competition held in New Zealand each year.

Wines from any country and made from any variety can be entered.

The 2014 New Zealand International Wine Show was judged from the 8th to 10th September 2014 in Auckland and attracted 2130 entries.

Entries were up 125 wines on last year but the 206 gold medals awarded was an increase of just five. The class that was noticeably down in golds was Pinot Noir where from almost 300 Pinot Noirs entered there were just 15 gold medals awarded. Assistant Chief Judge, Larry McKenna was surprised with the number of very disappointing wines the best were excellent but far too many bronze medals and no awards, especially given the outstanding 2012 vintage in Central Otago. In contrast 40 Shiraz / Syrah wines were voted top by the judges, while Chardonnay also did well with 27 gold medals awarded.

A Legend of New Zealand Wine

Many people have played important roles in making New Zealand wine the success that it now is. Each year the New Zealand International Wine Show will honour the person that has been selected for his or her outstanding contribution to New Zealand wine. To acknowledge that person, a special award has been created and named in honour of a man who unquestionably has made one of the greatest contributions to the New Zealand Wine Industry, Sir George Fistonich. The award previously known as The George Fistonich Medal is now The Sir George Fistonich Medal.

Previous recipients have been Bob Campbell MW (2005)
Kevin Judd (2006)
Terry Dunleavy MBE (2007)
Larry McKenna (2008)
Michael Cooper, ONZM (2009)
Kate Radburnd (2010)
Alan Brady (2011)
Vic Williams (2012)
Peter & Joe Babich (2013)
