18 May 2010Silver Success in London ...

Great news today! 

We have received news that our Pinot Noir 2008 (our first vintage / first wine) has been awarded a Silver Medal in the very prestigious International Wine Challenge 2010.

We are absolutely stoked, and this comes just a few days after we received news that our Pinot Gris 2009 received a Silver Medal in the Liquorland International Wine Show / Top 100 held here in New Zealand.  We certainly feel that we are well on the way to achieving our first goal of creating high quality artisan small batch wines that are classically Central Otago. 

We have to say thanks to the great team who have help us achieve these great results - Tim and Nikki Kerruish of Knox Estate and their vineyard team; Dan and Sarah-Kate Dineen and their winemaking team at Maude Wines; and Patrick Caudle who was a key palate in the team that created the final blend for bottling.  Great wine is the result of great grapes and the ability to husband the grapes into wine that expresses their place of origin.

Thanks everyone!!!

Now the plug - please go to our online shop or visit one of the retailers listed in the "Where to Buy" page on our web site to get yourself some of our wonderful wines.  Then enjoy with great food in the company of good friends.

Regards,  Douglas & Jane.
