More Gold Medal Wines for Hunter's at Easter Show

More Gold Medal Wines for Hunter

Hunter’s Wines have hit the ground running for 2013 with two gold medals at the Easter Show Wine Awards, celebrating the International Summer of Riesling in style with Hunter’s Marlborough 2012 Riesling taking out GOLD along with Hunter’s Marlborough 2009 MiruMiruTM Reserve.  (MiruMiruTM is Maori for bubbles).

With a total of nine medals the Easter Wine Show was a huge success for Hunter’s with three silver medals and five bronze medals to add to the gold medals.  Just 8.4% of wines received a gold medal so we are really pleased to have two of our wines in there, says Jane Hunter, CNZM, OBE, Managing Director for Hunter’s Wines.

As the team at Hunter’s are preparing for the 2013 vintage it’s a great boost to add another couple of gold’s to the growing list, says Jane.

Hunter’s Riesling’s are well known and continuously receives recognition.  Gold for the 2012 vintage follows Hunter's inaugural win in 2011 of the Heritage Rose Bowl for the 2010, 2007 & 2004 Rieslings.  The Heritage category was introduced to identify and reward wines that have evidenced a capacity to develop grace and complexity over time and offer a guide to consumers and wine lovers about cellaring potential of such wines.

Trophy winners for 2013 will be announced at the Diamond Jubilee Easter Show Wine Awards Dinner to be held in the Logan Campbell Centre, ASB Showgrounds, Greenlane, Auckland on Saturday evening, 16th March.
