Hunter’s Marlborough Gewurztraminer 2013 has been awarded the Supreme Champion Wine in Show Trophy at the 2013 Avenues International Aromatic Wine Competition. The competition which has been running for eleven years is hosted by the Canterbury A&P Association in conjunction with the Canterbury A&P Show.

“The Hunter’s Gewurztraminer is such a worthy winner of the supreme award as it completely embodies the concept of aromatic wine. Incredibly fragrant, the aromas of lychee, Turkish delight, grapefruit oil and cardamom spice are so pure and concentrated that smelling the wine alone is rewarding! The palate is well balanced with just enough acidity to balance the sweetness of the fruit and all the flavours linger in the aftertaste for quite some time. More wines should aspire to the sheer quality this wine provides” commented Chairman of Judges Terry Copeland.

Hunter’s Wines, a family owned winery, have won more than 165 gold medals at national and international wine competitions. Managed by Jane Hunter, together with Chief Winemaker Gary Duke and General Manager Peter Macdonald, Hunter's original vineyard area has increased by 2.5 times its original size and the company’s annual output has grown to around 75,000 cases of wine, nearly 80% of which is exported.

The Avenues International Aromatic Wine Competition is open to all wines made in an aromatic style from any internationally recognised region.

Judges awarded five section trophies and 302 medals including 44 gold medals, 87 silver medals and 171 bronze medals, from 429 entries.
