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 from any variety can be entered and this year 2130 entries were received from 12 countries resulting in 206 gold medals being awarded.

The Show took place from the 8th to the 10th September and was chaired by Bob Campbell MW, New Zealandís most experienced senior wine judge and this countryís leading wine educator. Assistant chief judges were Larry McKenna, Peter Cowley and John Hancock.

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 14 gold medals awarded. Assistant Chief Judge, Larry McKenna was surprised with the number of very disappointing wines Ė 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.

For the 6th time a Chardonnay has been crowned the Nissan Champion Wine of the Show. Northland can celebrate the success for Rod MacIvor and his Marsden Estate Black Rocks Chardonnay 2013.

Also notable is the Trophy achieved by Matua for winning the Trophy for Champion Shiraz/Syrah. The Matua Single Vineyard Matheson Syrah 2013 was judged the Champion wine from the 40 gold medals awarded in the Shiraz/Syrah class and was one of nine kiwi Syrahs to get a gold medal in this competitive class.

The Akarua Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013 continued a remarkable run of awards for this winery and it was interesting to note that 11 of the gold medals awarded from total of 14, in the Pinot Noir class were from the 2013 vintage.

Itís another glorious collection of world class wines.

In total the judges awarded 206 golds, 428 silvers and 961 bronze medals.

The award previously known as The George Fistonich Medal is now The Sir George Fistonich Medal.
