9 November 2010Success in Hong Kong

The Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wines & Spirits (IWSC) Competition has just completed, and results announced.

In the words of Gabriel Savage in an article for the Drinks Business website this was an 'Antipodean triumph'!  Australia with 14 gold and 48 silver awards, topped the medals board. And New Zealand achieved an outstanding 'second place' with a total of 13 gold and 38 silver awards. NZ also collected several of the trophies as well!

We are very happy to report that we contributed to the triumph, collecting a Silver Medal for our (as yet to be released) '36 Bottles' Pinot Noir 2009.  We also took part in the food matching challenge and were very pleased to receive a Bronze medal for a match of the Pinot Noir with Braised Abalone.

The Pinot Noir 2009 looked lovely as grapes on the vine, and we were thrilled with the wine as it fermented and matured in barrel.  And we were excited by the result when we completed the final blend in February this year.  The medal is the icing on the cake.

So look out for this wine when we make it available to our on line customers in the next few weeks.
