Announcing 2020 Medal Winners
304 Gold, 387 Silver, 732 Bronze Medals
New Zealand's largest wine judging competition has been completed with the judges awarding a record number of gold medals. The excellent vintages of 2019 and 2020 gave us spectacular wines and the judges were treated to many of the best varietal line-ups they have ever encountered.
Standout varieties included Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz where record numbers of gold medals were awarded. Rosé wines also fared well with 5 Double Gold and 11 Gold Medals awarded.
The big winners are the purchasing public as the judges have identified the wines that make buying top quality so much easier.
